I’m still partial to having a true smartphone these days, but there are many other people who are more interested in cheaper messaging phones with full QWERTY keyboards. If that sounds like you, Boost Mobile has you covered with the Samsung Rant.
If you’re thinking that this phone looks a lot like the Samsung Gravity, you’re not alone. The form factor was unique a few years back, but several other messaging phones have started to take on this style (like the LG Rumor).
I haven’t seen a new Kyocera phone for some time, but it seems that the Japanese company is still around and kicking. The newest phone doesn’t carry direct Kyocera branding, per se, but it is the Sanyo Juno by Kyocera and it’s heading to Boost Mobile.
From what I can see, the Juno is not a smartphone. Instead, it’s another one of those QWERTY-packing messaging phones designed for texting enthusiasts and other people who can’t be bothered with full smartphone functionality.
The latest rumor on Verizon is that a prepaid BlackBerry data service plan is set to be offered within the next three months. We don’t have specifics just yet, but the plan is expected to be $35 on top of your regular voice plan and we don’t expect many BlackBerry variants to be made available at this deal.
Boost Mobile today unveiled their first clamshell device, the Sanyo Incognito by Kyocera. At a price of $129.99, the Incognito will be available on Boost’s new Monthly Unlimited plan on Sprint’s 3G CDMA network.
