Boost Mobile and Motorola Mobility have added three new devices to the Irvine-based prepaid wireless brand's handset lineup: the Clutch + i475, the i412 and the Theory.

The Clutch + i475 and the i412 are from Motorola’s iDEN Series, which addresses the needs of Boost's loyal base of walkie-talkie users, said company Vice President Andre Smith.

The Clutch + i475 and the i412 include a walkie-talkie function, VGA camera, Bluetooth technology and Web access. The Clutch + i475 is the successor to the Motorola Clutch, and features a "candy-bar" handset design, improved QWERTY keyboard and larger display.

“Additionally, the Motorola Theory on the Nationwide Sprint Network is another affordable solution for customers looking for a broader data and messaging experience,” Smith said.

The Theory is also a candy-bar QWERTY handheld, and features Web and email access, Bluetooth technology, a 1.3 megapixel camera and a 2.4-inch QVGA display.

The Clutch + i475 is available at Boost’s retail stores now for $99.99. The Theory will be available June 7 for $79.99, and the i412 flip phone will be available June 13 for $69.99.

All three devices will be offered with Boost's $50 Monthly Unlimited with Shrinkage plan, which gives customers the incentive to maintain their plan and reduce their monthly fees – as low as $35 for unlimited nationwide talk, text, Web, email, IM and calls to 411 – simply by making on-time payments.

“Motorola is excited to collaborate with Boost Mobile to extend the device options available for their no-contract customers,” said Jeff Miller, corporate vice president of Motorola Mobility. “Both stylish and affordable, these new devices enable consumers to get more out of their conversations whether over talk, text, email or IM.”
