Press photo of Motorola i465 shows up

About a month ago we caught a glimpse of the Motorola i465, a simple-looking QWERTY phone with modestly-sized screen. There weren’t many details at the time, just a picture of a guy holding it. Looks now like it’s getting closer to being official, as a press photo for the device has leaked. It says Nextel on the screen, but this looks like a perfect fit for Boost Mobile. A simple QWERTY phone — with VGA camera and Bluetooth — would be a good addition to their handset lineup. ]]>

    Yes. Please. Someone here at the PrepaidReviews site should push this idea to Boost and place the i465 phone into the lineup for customers. I’m looking for a PDAphone for prepaid service. So are other people. Since you have juice here it can happen.

    This is NOT a PDA phone! It has a VGA camera for christ sakes! I love qwerty phones, but I will stick with my i9 instead, atleast my i9 has video record, 3.1 megapixles cam, AND i could say “Kick Rocks” on the voice recorder and then set it as my ring tone! VGA camera… yea right. This is 2009, not 1999.

    Oh, Excuse Me! but a qwerty keyboard for easier texting Nice! Well then, Boost should indeed place a BlackBerry in its lineup. That would be nice. as for the i9, Good Luck! for $300 bucks i hope its a bargain.

    Good News. Boost now has the i465. So the stores should have it next month.
    Yes Please push the BlackBerry for prepaid folks. Forgive the I. Not i. Thx.

    If the i465 had a 3 meg camera, video, a good lens, Opera mini or full HTML browser, and at least a 2.4 hi-res screen for 150 dollars. Then they would have a winner. The problem is Motorola is out of touch.

    Perhaps we should get Boost to get an updated i465 model with all the features
    such as a 3meg camera video and improved
    focus with a 2.4 hi-res for $150. Let’s do that now. With help from
