Lumia 650 may land at Cricket Wireless in April
It looks as though those in the U.S. may not have much longer to wait to pick up a Lumia 650 — at least if Cricket Wireless is your carrier. According to Windows Central forum moderator and Ambassador RumoredNow, a Cricket sales representative recently confirmed that the carrier will indeed carry the Lumia 650 starting in April, confirming such with Cricket's online bulletins. Unfortunately, there aren't yet any details concerning price or a specific date to look forward to.
However, we may soon hear more about the fate of the Lumia 650 in the U.S., according to the official Lumia US Twitter account:

If you've been following along with Lumia 650 news for a while, the phone winding up at Cricket wouldn't come as much of a surprise. Our own Daniel Rubino reported as far back as December that the smartphone may be destined for the carrier this April. Given that Cricket was also one of the first carriers to get the Lumia 640, this move seems like a natural fit.
In any case, we should hear more in the way of what Microsoft has planned for the Lumia 650 in the U.S. tomorrow, March 11.
Thanks for the tip, RumoredNow!
