Motorola just doesn't get it

When are they ever going to come out with a real touch screen like the Dare and others? That's what people are looking for.

The only one that doesn't get it is you.

Boost isn't a main stream carrier, with monied customers. Its designed to compete with Cricket & Metro PCS. Touch screen phones, by definition, would push $400 price points on a prepay network. Just how many people, who may struggle every month just to pay their phone bill, can afford to plop down 4 bills for a phone?

The i9 could well push 3 bills....and I wonder if I'll even carry it at that price. My Boost customers balk at the $100 for a flip camera phone. I can't imagine them embracing a $300 phone.

With my store, many of my customers can't wait for this phone to come out..I have them waiting......Boost rep. told me it will wholesale to dealers for around $210.00 with a MSRP of $299.99. rep, also stated there are about 6 other new phones scheduled to launch this year with the first smartphone arriving in late may or early summer for Boost Mobile... Boost is really going to blow MetroPCS away with these new phones and coast to coast coverage....Way to go Sprint!!

It depends on what the dealer wants to charge, it is up to each dealer, most of the national retailers will sell for the MSRP of $299.99
