Nice specs for the price...Can't say the same for the HTC Evo Design 4G. It needs to come off it like by 100$...I can see if Boost got the Photon or the EpTouch flauinting a 299$ or 350$ price but not the HTC Evo Design 4G.

Well you have to remember that the HTC EVO Design 4G is the only 4G WiMAX phone on Boost Mobile right now. The Kyocera Hydro seems to be running only 3G, so it makes sense that it would get a cheaper price point.

Exactly. While I agree with you Birds, I would much rather have the Epic Touch 4G on their network(or virgin mobile's) but having that 4G radio does justify the price tag compared to the rest of the other devices on their line up.

When Verizon had the only LTE network on a major carrier, their phones were 299 now(hopefully) they won't be anymore higher than 199-250 now that AT&T and Sprint have LTE networks.

After i jumped from boost to pageplus and walked into my local walmart they had the evo design 4g on boost for $189, i had to take a triple take i thought they had the price wrong and asked the manager that was working there and he said thats what they sell for. Just check walmart yours might have it for the same price.

if it had a 3.2 inch screen 600 mghz processor, 2 mp camera BUT IF IT HAD ICS

that alone would justify the price
