Boost Mobile has announced two new Motorola handsets today, the Rambler and the Bali.
The Motorola Rambler is a flip phone with a QWERTY keyboard. It will be available online on August 11th and cost $99.99 excluding taxes if you choose to order it that way. You may be able to get one sooner from Boost Mobile exclusive retail stores, some independent dealers or Best Buy.
It can be paired with Boost Mobile’s $50/month unlimited plan, which includes unlimited voice, texts and data without an annual contract.
- 1.3MP camera with video recording
- Web, email and Instant Messaging access
- Stereo Bluetooth
- Downloadable games, wallpapers and ringtones
This may just be a perfect phone for those addicted to texting and/or email. Pretty low-end all in all, therefore that QWERTY keyboard is clearly its main selling point.
The Motorola Bali is a similar-looking flip phone that gets rid of the QWERTY keyboard and instead offers the standard T9 affair.
Its features are pretty identical too, with a 1.3 MP camera on board, GPS and stereo Bluetooth. It also has external controls for the music player and a microSD card slot.
The Bali will cost $149.99 (excluding taxes) if you order it online, where it will also be released on August 11th. It should already be available from Boost Mobile retail stores and select independent dealers.
This pricing clearly indicates which of the two phones Boost is more eager to promote, and it’s all good news for the texting crowd.
