Sprint has been a pretty good parent company to its subsidiaries. Both its prepaid counterparts, Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile, have been getting some pretty sweet phones to add to their arsenal. Both carriers got an Evo (Design on Boost/3D (V) on Virgin), and now it looks like Boost will be receiving one of Sprint’s more recent flagships, the Epic 4G Touch.
One of the most popular phones from last year has strangely never made it to any prepaid carriers in the states. Now it seems it’ll finally make a splash for consumers who hate contracts. The model number SPH-D710BST indicates its arrival due to the BST at the end, which is a signature of all Boost models. It’s still the same model we’ve all known for a year now, packing a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 4.5 SuperAMOLED+ display, 8MP camera and all. Boost may be able to draw in some customers with this one.
No word on pricing as of yet, but this phone will be able to jump on Sprint’s WiMax network when it becomes available. Do you guys dislike contracts? How many of you guys will be picking one of these up?
