Moto i425 at Boost Mobile
Virtual network Boost Mobile today looked to inject added style into its lineup by carrying the Motorola i425. One of the slimmest phones based on instant-talk iDEN networks, the candybar design is under half an inch thick while still providing the walkie-talkie chats that define the company's service. It also includes many of the features that have come to be familiar on Boost's network, such as support for multiple IM chat networks, Java apps, and GPS navigation.
Costs will be low with espresso gray and white-trimmed versions of the phone shipping for $60, each with $5 of presupplied calling time; customers should see the phone expand Boost's current lineup to five total phones by the time it arrives in shops and online in September. [via New Launches]
