We had known that Republic Wireless was planning to begin rolling out the beta invites, and well, it looks like some of them have been arriving. According to the details that we have seen thus far, those receiving a beta invite are being assigned a wave and then put on a waiting list. Further details state that the actual purchase of a handset should only be about a week after you make the wait list. Exciting times, sure. But on that note, with the requirement of making a purchase so soon — what about the phones. Well, up until this point Republic Wireless has yet to reveal the specific models. So far they have offered up a few hints though. According to Republic Wireless, they will have a $199, $299 and $499 handset available. And keep in mind, these will arrive with a first month of service and perhaps more important — contract free.
