Depending on the market it is being sold, the main camera is either 8 MP or 5 MP, RAM is 1.5GB or 1GB, and the internal memory is 8GB or 16GB.
The device is expected to be available in the US in Q1 this year. Its pricing details haven't been revealed yet.
As a Boost sales rep, I can tell you that the phone is going to be selling retail for 99.99. After about a month of having this phone in our inventory, we'll probably be giving it out for free when you port over form one of our competitors. Otherwise...
I work for Boost and just received the first batch of the 5mpx/1.1ghz/1gb rom models. They are currently priced at $99.99 and are not on any promotions yet.
The specs on this phone is a low budget phone. I have no intrest in buyer. I'll pass. No thanks.
