Cricket Communications launched their latest budget-friendly cell phone, the MOTO VE240, in the Tulsa, Oklahoma market today. The candy bar-sized phone is geared specifically at the cost-conscious set, bringing MP3 and Stereo Bluetooth music, removable memory and USB file transfer capabilities at a price point that hovers around $90.

Motorola hasn’t hit a handset homerun for this demographic since the RAZR, so it’ll be interesting to see how Cricket’s Tulsa release of the MOTO VE240 will fare. Cricket Communications is the first carrier to release the MOTO VE240; its early sales may be a glimpse into the attitudes consumers will take into this holiday shopping season.
