Motorola is busy launching yet another phone (the A630 and MPx220 weren't enough!)--the Motorola i285. This phone is a Boost Mobile exclusive, and features somewhat of a uniuqe feature: a vanity mirror. You'll be able to snag the Motorola i285 for around $149.99 at retail locations like Best Buy, Sam Goody, Target and Wal-Mart. Since we have never mentioned Boost Mobile before, here's how pricing works: A flat rate of 25 cents per minute 24 hours a day, seven days a week (long distance calling and roaming included). The i285 includes push-to-talk, which costs $1.50 a day for unlimited national use. Fee only applies when used. The Nextel network is used. Full feature list and a picture of the mirror in action follow below: info-newmobile04-boost.jpg * Voice activated dialing and hands free speakerphone * Voice notes conversation capture * captures memos or incoming phone conversations for future playback * Voice mail and VibraCall Alert * Alternate "sand-colored" keypad plate included in product packaging * Boost Wireless Web access, text messaging and AOL Instant Messenger services * 600 contact phone book with assignable ring tones for different callers * GPS enabled * Up to 165 minutes talk time with high-performance battery * Up to 70 hours standby with high-performance battery
