Anyone receive a Republic Wireless Beta invite?

Posted Apr 26, 2012 at 12:34 pm in Threads > Smartphones & Tablets

I got an email from Republic Wireless last night saying that I had a spot in the next beta wave. In the registration process it asks which of 3 phones I may be interested in if they were offered. The phones were described as:

Basic Androidâ„¢ phone
$199 up front fee that includes your phone plus your first month of service, new manufacturer, with a 3.5” touchscreen, 600 MHz processor, 0.5 GB storage, 5 megapixel camera
Mid-level Androidâ„¢ phone
$299 up front fee that includes your phone plus your first month of service, well-known manufacturer, 3.7” touchscreen, 1.0 GHz processor, 1.0 GB storage, 5 megapixel rear camera, VGA-quality front-facing camera
High-end Androidâ„¢ phone
$499 up front fee that includes your phone plus your first month of service, well-known manufacturer, 4.3” touchscreen, 1.2 GHz dual core processor, 8.0 GB storage, 7 megapixel rear camera

I wonder which phones they are.

    Just by taking a look at the sprint wireless website…
    The entry-level phone is something like the LG Optimus they’re currently rocking, or a entry-level ZTE or HUawei phone.
    MIdlevel– I dunno, probably something similar to an HTC Incredible or Samsung Nexus S. Sprint didn’t really offer decent 3.7 inch phones.
    Top Tier — One of the newer EVOs like, the EVO Design 4G or a Samsung Galaxy S II.

    Their twitter feed says they are still sending out invites. It appears that there are a LOT of people who are interested in their service. I’m still waiting for my invite as well.

    Kind of miffed though that they haven’t announced the new phones before this next wave of sign-ups. I’d hate to get the optimus and then a week later they come out with a better phone.
