Boost Mobile to get Android-powered slider from Samsung
It seems as though Sprint’s no-contract company Boost Mobile will be getting its first taste of Android flavored, QWERTY packing devices as the Samsung SPH-M930 appears to be heading its way.   

Boost Mobile has offered Android handsets previously, but they never offered one that had a full QWERTY keyboard. Though it has not gone through the FCC just yet, we know that this yet-to-be-named smartphone will have 2.3 Gingerbread on-board. Behind the scenes is said to be a 1GHz processor.

In a move which more than likely is to keep cost down given the prepaid nature of this unreleased handset, it will only feature an HVGA display. It is

also possible that the camera on the back could only be 2 or 3 megapixels, although it does appear to be sporting a flash.

This smartphone will be a first for Boost Mobile. Given that it hasn’t yet gone through the FCC we probably won’t see this device on shelves for a few months. However, at the time of its release it will probably be one of the best that Boost has to offer. Tell us what you think in the comments below.

I believe i read that the back camera will be a 3mp. They could of moved the samsung logo to the back and that would of made room to make the screen a little bigger since thats one of the things that atracts people and easier on the finger. Having a slider keyboard its perfect for those who love texting and of course its full touchscreen as well if you just used to it. I love that it has flash as well. and lastest adroid version and 1ghz. I will get this as soon as it comes out.
