Cricket wireless announced today that it was launching the world’s first advanced wireless services mobile phone called the CDM7126 by UTStarcom. Cricket says that the handset is now available in its stores in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The handset will be available in all Cricket service areas soon. The CDM7126 is designed to operate on the new AWS spectrum band and it's a tri-band phone that can also operate on PCS and cellular bands.

"We are pleased to be the first wireless carrier to offer an AWS wireless phone to our customers," said Al Moschner, Cricket's Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. "Taking this leadership position underscores our commitment to fostering product innovation by introducing CDMA's first tri-band mobile device that enables multi-market use. This introduction marks the successful conclusion of two years of planning and development by UTStarcom and Cricket."
