Moto i425 at Boost Mobile

Boost Mobile today upped the style of its handsets with the launch of the Motorola i425. The device is the provider's thinnest ever at 0.47 inches thick but still offers the walkie-talkie instant calls that the company says are extremely popular on its iDEN-based network. It also offers many of the features of better phones on other networks with mobile web access, multi-network IM chat, and assisted GPS navigation. Users can also load true music ringtones rather than the simpler MIDI tones.

The i425 further represents a minor revolution in terms of packaging for cellphones, Boost says. The clamshell pack is made completely of recycled material and uses post-consumer goods for about 35 percent of that material. Boost ships the phone in black/gray (i425t) or espresso/white (i425e) for $40 with $5 of pay-as-you-go phone time and lets users either continue to add calling minutes at will or switch to a pre-paid plan from $30 per month.
