-Hi, I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET taking a first look at the Kyocera Rio for Cricket.
This is a standard touchscreen feature phone.
There aren't a ton of these in Cricket's line up, so it is a good choice if you're looking for this kind of phone; otherwise, I'd say it's pretty midrange, nothing that special.
With that said, there is a 2.8-inch resistive touchscreen.
Capacitive screens have a reputation for being far more easy to use and far more responsive.
This resistive screen is actually pretty responsive and easy to press,
although sometimes, you do need to add a little bit more pressure to scroll.
There are three home screens with large buttons that are pretty finger friendly.
You can drag and drop application, shortcuts, and icons around the screens and also from the application tray onto the screens.
There are two kinds of virtual keyboards that you get with the Rio.
There's portrait mode and landscape mode, but you don't get the landscape mode all the time.
The portrait mode usually has a half QWERTY keyboard or you can use predictive text.
It's not always the most convenient to get around.
For external features, there is a 3-megapixel camera.
There's also a microSD card slot behind the back cover and that holds up to 16 gigabytes of external memory.
Inside, you've got apps like e-mail.
There's a music player if you've got that microSD card.
There's also a Cricket's navigation app and a backup app.
The Kyocera Rio costs $129 in stores or $109 if you buy it online.
Keep in mind that sounds pricey, but you will not be tied to a contract.
