More Boost Mobile Phone Details

Another hit from the forums: Boost Mobile's upcoming lineup:
  • Motorola Mako (replacement for the i335), $90, coming October 1...probably Bluetooth and a camera for that money
  • Motorola i465 (aforementioned texting phone), $110, coming June 15...looks a bit better than I thought
  • Motorola Banfi (slider with ?WiFi? to ameliorate subpar iDEN data speeds), $140, coming August 2...quite nice, and WiFi on an iDEN phone is an interesting concept
Granted, the launch date for the i290 was a few months off, but that just means that the above handsets will be released sooner. In any case, Boost is building a strong phone selection with these items. That's a good thing when you want to get people signed up for unlimited service on a data-poor network. Or, for that matter, pay-per-minute service.

Any idea on whether the 'Banfi' is qwerty also (under the slider)?
