PhoneNews has it that the launch date was confirmed in a TV ad that aired yesterday during the broadcast of the Indianapolis 500 auto race.
It’s said that the Motorola i1 costs $349.99 without a contract – and I think this will make it one of Boost Mobile’s most expensive phones ever. Even so, Boost will probably sell lots of i1s – the handset looks good, it’s rugged and it also has lots of nice features, like a HVGA touchscreen display, Google Maps, Swype, Wi-Fi, and a 5MP camera with flash.
The Motorola i1 will also be launched in Latin America (Mexico, Brazil and Argentina) sometime soon, through NII Holdings (Nextel).
