Boost Mobile and Samsung are handing out invites to a special event going on April 5th. There’s no mention of exactly what device will be shown at the event, but as invitations are being handed out to Android blogs, that can only mean one thing: it’s time for a new phone.
Boost Mobile is no stranger to Android; the Motorola i1 has been available with the pre-paid service for some time now. Unfortunately, in that time the i1 hasn’t aged well. MetroPCS, another pay-as-you-go carrier, just launched the Samsung Indulge with a 3.5-inch display and 1GHz Hummingbird processor that make the i1 look less than appealing. As Samsung is still releasing phones with 1GHz processors all over the place (see: Sidekick 4G), there’s a good chance we could see one land in Boost’s new project. There’s no telling what else could be in store, so you’ll just have to stay tuned for the announcement.
With the event only two weeks away, we don’t have long to wait.
