The ICC And Reliance Big Entertainment Release An Official Fantasy Cricket App For The World Cup

Cricket. Cricket. That's the one like baseball, but with the flat bats and a circular field and a ton of players and black tea afterwards, right? I apologize - as an American it's hard for me to concentrate on sports that don't involve constant concussions and commercial breaks every two minutes. But I am reliably informed that Cricket is enjoyed in Britain and all the places that used to be Britain (except this one). For all of those people, the International Cricket Council has teamed up with the UK arm of Indian publisher Reliance Big Entertainment to offer an official World Cup fantasy app.

Cricket Wireless Will Offer The 2015 Moto E With 4G LTE For Just $129.99 Starting March 13th

Budget phones used to be the bane of Android's existence, embarrassments that gave buyers horrible first impressions of the platform and sent them running, tears in their eyes, towards the nearest iPhone they could catch on sale. Things have changed. Low-end phones may not offer the looks or build-quality of their flagship counterparts, but they provide plenty of screen real estate and power for average folks to stay connected.

With the new Moto E, Motorola has again raised the bar on what we can expect from a budget device. At $149.99, we can own a 4.5-inch phone outright and experience most of what Android has to offer.

Cricket Wireless Boosting Data Caps For A Limited Time Starting September 13th

Cricket Wireless might not be top of mind among US carriers, but it's starting to get aggressive as it goes after T-Mobile and MetroPCS customers.

AT&T Will Shut Down Aio Budget Brand And Combine Its Assets With Cricket After Leap Wireless Acquisition

The big news in the wireless business this week has been AT&T's upcoming purchase of Leap Wireless, which the FCC approved yesterday. The deal has been in the works since July of last year. That leaves AT&T in an interesting spot, since it now owns the CDMA-based Cricket Wireless, which directly competes with the budget-focused Aio sub-brand. Apparently AT&T prefers the more established brand, because the company said it will combine the assets of both under the "Cricket" name.

Fierce Wireless reported that AT&T announced plans to combine the brands as part of the FCC filing back in October.

Google Now Adds Support For Cricket Sports Cards, Americans Still Baffled By Cricket

Like all of the current writers and editors for Android Police, I'm American. Which means that my understanding of cricket is something along the lines of, "like baseball, but more British." That gives me the vague impression that during the seventh inning stretch everyone stops to sing God Save The Queen and heads to the concession stand for tea. If you know more about the noble sport of cricket than I do, you'll be pleased to hear that Google just added support for scores and schedules to Google Now.

All joking aside, we know this is a big deal for sports fans in India, Australia, South Africa, Pakistan, and several other countries.

Cricket Gets The Galaxy S4 Android 4.3 Update With Galaxy Gear And Samsung KNOX Support

You know what? There are entirely too many versions of the Samsung Galaxy S4. I feel like I've written this same story a half-dozen times, though that's probably because it's essentially the same software update across the Galaxy S4, S III, and Note II. In any case, if you're rocking Samsung's 2013 flagship on budget carrier Cricket, you might see an over the air update prompt today: it's your turn to get Android 4.3.
