Wow, the Motorola XPRT, midrange Android QWERTY slab phone, ala Blackberry, is now avaailable at BoostMobile.com. It's priced at $99.99
Although physically similar to Boost's Samsung Replenish, which sells for the same price, the XPRT is a much more powerful and likely better made phone with a larger, higher screen, longer battery life, faster processor and a much better camera.
