Cricket intros wireless plan with unlimited music on Samsung Suede

Cricket Wireless is a smaller mobile provider, but it might be gaining more attention with the introduction of a new wireless plan that features unlimited music.

Cricket Wireless is a smaller mobile provider, but it might be gaining more attention with the introduction of a new wireless plan that features unlimited music.

Dubbed "Muve Music," the $55-per-month plan will include unlimited nationwide calling, global texting, picture and video messaging, 3G service, email, data backup, ringtones and, of course, full song downloads.

However, anyone interested in this plan (and lives in an area actually covered by Cricket Wireless) will have to buy the Samsung Suede (pictured above), which supports a 3-inch touch screen and a dedicated music button. Downloaded content is supposed to be DRM-free, but music can only be stored to a "special flash memory card." Presumably that means you can't share your content with different devices.

Set to debut first at CES 2011 in Las Vegas next month, Cricket's music service will roll out later in January. The Samsung Suede will cost $199.
