Boost Mobile's Woodie

by Josh Rubin in Tech on 24 January 2005

Boostmobile I860 Woody


Boost Mobile, the youth market flavor of Nextel, is offering limited edition versions of the Motorola i860 handset. There's a tattoo version, which walks a fine line between good and cheesy. The most recent style is this one featuring wood-grain details on the inside and top face. It's a pretty elegant contrast of tech and retro.

Boost is definitely doing good things despite the challenging parents, Motorola and Nextel. And the i860 is really the first iDen (Nextel / Boost) handset that I like.

MobileMag has all the details and a few more pictures.
