AT&T’s prepaid brand Cricket Wireless announced today that it will be carrying the new 4G LTE version of the Moto E starting this Friday, March 13. This phone will be the first Lollipop device that Cricket will carry and it should be available both online and in stores. While the Moto E is still an entry-level device, this phone is still a pretty good deal for the expected price point.

Cricket uses AT&T’s LTE network, which is currently the second largest in the nation. The Moto E LTE is expected to cost around $129.99.
Here’s some of the relevant specs:
- Android 5.0 Lollipop
