Boost launching Moto Stature i9 at the end of February

After far too much time spent offering nothing but clunky brickphones and the ugliest phone we’ve ever seen, Boost Mobile is finally bringing out something worth putting next to your face: the Motorola i9.

It won’t come cheap, though – the specs on the i9 are notably higher than most phones in Boost’s corral, and the price is matched according; for $199 ($299 sans contract) you’ll get the 15mm flip with its 3.1 megapixel camera, microSD support, GPS, haptic feedback, Stereo bluetooth (A2DP) and, as standard with Boost, push-to-talk.

We’re glad to see some reasonably nice looking handsets make their way to Boost – but $200 bucks? Yikes.
