Cricket announced the TXTM8 3G today, which is really a rebranded TXTM8 II. As the name suggests, the TXTM8 3G now has 3G support in the form of tri-band EVDO. It's a simple slate-style QWERTY messaging phone, with a 2-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, a 3.5-mm headset jack, a music player, and support for up to 16GB microSD cards. The TXTM8 3G is available for $79.99 after a $20 discount, and no contract is required. The TXTM8 3G is available starting November 12.
