Sprint MVNO Cricket Wireless has just announced its newest addition to its smartphone line-up, the Engage LT. The device comes packed with Cricket’s very own Muve Music service and is available for purchase at licensed Cricket outlets and at their online store for $199.99 unlocked.

The mid-range smartphone is a great addition to Cricket’s device line-up and isn’t one to shy away from some very impressive specs despite the budget-friendly price. The Engage LT comes with a 1 GHZ Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor, 1 GB of RAM and pre-loaded with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)

On top of those specs, the Engage LT comes with a built-in 3.2 megapixel rear facing camera and a panoramic mode for stitched photo images or 480 resolution video.

But the main selling point of Cricket’s Engage LT is its Muve Music service, which allows users to download unlimited songs from Cricket’s growing music archive to listen to on-the-go. The Muve Music service had just recently hit its 1.4 million subscriber milestone , from over 1 million by the end of 2012.

The service, obviously targeted to music lovers on a budget, is fast growing to be one of the most accessible and affordable mobile music delivery services in the country.

The Engage LT is 3G, Wifi ready along with built-in Bluetooth connectivity. The phone is designed to work on Cricket’s all-in rate plans which start at $50 for unlimited voice calls, SMS and up to 1 GB of mobile data. A small add-on of $10 (upping the plan to $60) brings the data cap up to 2.5 GB while an add-on of $20 ($70 plan) brings it up to 5 GB.

Outside of the Engage LT, Cricket has been pushing hard to bolster its already rich smartphone line up., Cricket was one of the few carriers publicly announced to be carrying the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S4 due for release in the U.S later this April.

However, Cricket isn’t one to forget that its main attraction is budget friendly smartphones like the Engage LT. For more information on Cricket’s Engage LT you can visit their website.
