Cricket releases compact little TXTM8
Cricket releases the TXTM8, a PCD device with a full QWERTY keyboard for--what else?--texting.
When CTIA, we thought for sure it would be a successor to the --they're both square and slightly chubby, with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.at the PCD (Personal Communications Devices) booth at this year's
Now it appears regional carrier Cricket has first dibs at the little messaging phone, and they've dubbed it the TXTM8, pronounced "textmate"--get it? Features include a 1.3-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, voice recognition, a music player, and a microSD card slot. You can get it now for $159.99 without a contract.
