Vita and StraightTalk
Of course it could have really did without some features like GPS and 3G. Is someone seriously going to use this thing to drive around town with? With the battery life I hope their destination isn't anymore than 20 mins away.
Now for some new and exciting news! Has anyone here heard of StraightTalk? Its a prepaid service that allows $45 unlimited talk, text, and 3G data. For the longest time though their phones were.."Meh" at best. No Nexus for them. Well, thats about to change!
I had a meeting with our rep today who shared some awesome news. StraightTalk is getting some 15-20 new Android Phones for their service. Starting at $88 to $400. Depending on how awesome of a phone you want. The phones you select will also decide what towers they run on. As of right now StraightTalk will have AT&T, Version and Sprint phones all available by years end. All with UNLIMITED 3G data. But AT&T and Verizon will throttle you data after it hits 3gb.
Now for the truly awesome news. In March StraightTalk will start selling $15 SIM cards at Wal-Mart stores. You can put these cards in ANY GSM phone and it'll be converted to run on StraightTalk's service. Want out of your contract but want to keep your Samsung Captivate? No problem! Buy this SIM and you are good to go. A bill of $80 goes down to $45. I am looking forward to seeing this take place.
