If you haven’t seen the Sharp AQUOS Crystal as yet, you’re really missing out on a treat. We’ve had our eyes on this phone since August (when we first saw it) and now it’s finally available for lucky Sprint customers in the US.
The phone’s most stunning feature is its display, which is quite literally edge-to-edge and bezel-less. With screen sizes increasing every day, this might be the direction phone manufactures will have to take in order to make their builds less bulky as they ramp up display sizes.
The AQUOS Crystal will cost you a very reasonable $149.99 (without taxes) on Boost Mobile (and Best Buy) from October 10 on-wards (you can get one now at www.boostmobile.com/aquoscrystal)
For those Sprint customers who want a package plan, the phone will be available at no down payment from October 17, with a 2-year, $10/month plan. You can also head over to Sprint Prepaid and get your hands on a black version (the one on Boost Mobile is white), or wait to get one from your nearest Radio Shack from October 21 on-wards.
