Sprint Nextel's wholly owned MVNO subsidiary Boost Mobile has launched the Motorola i835. Boost is one of the fastest growing mobile virtual network operators and is the biggest growth space inside Sprint. The i835 has been reintroduced with two new color schemes, the increasingly popular white and a US first of purple. The original black color scheme is also available.

Features of the Motorola i835 include:

  • 130×130 screen with 65k colors
  • Speakerphone
  • Small size (for an iDEN handset), just 85 × 45 × 20 mm
  • AgION antimicrobial coating

All colors of the Motorola i835 cost $129.99 from Boost Mobile.
