New Motorola Multi-Media Phone Slides Into Boost Mobile's Expanding Handset Lineup
Boost Mobile, a division of Sprint that offers wireless phones and services with no contracts, credit checks or activation fees and Motorola announced the launch of its first push-to-talk slider phone. The Motorola Debut i856 gives Boost Mobile customers full advantage of a handset that glides open and closed with ease for instant communication. Motorola Debut will be available to consumers today at www.boostmobile.com with free shipping for the price of $169.99.
With its nationwide walkie-talkie and enhanced features, Debut is a perfect match for Boost's $50 Monthly Unlimited plan, which offers unlimited, nationwide, anytime calling, text messaging1, wireless Web1 and walkie-talkie service in 17,500 cities throughout the United States on the Nextel National Network – all with no additional telecom taxes, activation, roaming, traveling or long distance fees.
"Motorola Debut enhances the walkie-talkie experience further by incorporating the favorite traits among feature phones," said Richard Gadd, vice president, Motorola Mobile Devices. "Now Boost Mobile customers can continue to stay in constant contact with the added control of a slider and the fun of camera and music features."
"Our wildly popular Monthly Unlimited service is attracting customers who are more likely to purchase higher-end phones," said Matt Carter, Boost Mobile President. "The Motorola Debut i856 phone meets the need for this demand with compelling multimedia features, including a 1.3MP camera with video capture, instant music access and Stereo Bluetooth capabilities into a sleek but durable design that fits comfortably in a pocket or purse."
When you need a fast response, Motorola Debut manages the conversation with favorite push-to-talk features. The compact slider design gives easier access to the keypad along with the security of keeping keys protected when not in use. Control your music, take calls, view messages and access the Web, all with the slider closed. Threaded texting1 allows you to view entire conversations all on one screen.
Once your message is ready to go, send it in the background and move on to other applications.
Mix it up with Music
Instantly open up your song library with a dedicated music key and play music the way it was meant to sound on dual speakers with enhanced 3D audio. Listen to your music your way with a 3.5mm headset jack for wired headphones or wirelessly using stereo Bluetooth and keep your music in constant rotation by easily swapping songs from your desktop and storing up to 10 hours of music with 8GB of optional removable memory. With an easy-to-use camera and video capture and playback you no longer have to rely just on your memory.
