Boost Mobile has launched the QWERTY-based clamshell/flip hybrid phone from SANYO on its prepaid network: the Incognito. Introduced last fall and first available at Best Buy in late January, Boost Mobile expects to expand the distribution of Kyocera's low-cost phone to RadioShack as well as Target and Walmart soon. The handset, which utilizes Boost's outsourced 3G/EVDO network (by Sprint), has a glowing touch-sensitive keypad and OLED display along with flip-open QWERTY keyboard and a larger 2.6-inch, 320x240 screen along with a 2MP camera with VGA camcorder.
The SANYO Incognito SCP6760 device also offers haptic feedback to confirm button presses, and a microSD memory card slot that supports up to 16GB. It also supports Multi-Media messaging (Picture & Video), stereo Bluetooth, a voice recorder, voice-activated dialing, bundled music/video player software, and GPS support as well as ships with Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter apps preloaded.
The device is available for $129.99 (excluding taxes) with free shipping when purchased online with Boost Mobile's $50 Monthly Unlimited plan, which offers unlimited talk, text & web with no contract.
