Boost Mobile is today announcing the availability of its first phablet, the Boost MAX. Priced at $299.99, the Android-powered smartphone comes loaded with a 5.7-inch HD IPS touchscreen with Corning® Gorilla® Glass and 8-megapixel camera. The large screen size brings the best of a smartphone and tablet together which takes the experience of playing videos and games to a whole new level.
In addition, Boost MAX is the first prepaid U.S. smartphone with the latest Dolby Digital Plus audio technology, providing a surround sound mobile experience through the built-in speakers and headphones, enhancing audio clarity and dialogue, and amplifying volume for entertainment on the go.
The Boost Max is the only phablet, or smartphone, currently available to come with SmartView, a technology that allows the consumer to open and operate any two applications at the same time. It also comes equipped with support of the blazing fast 4G LTE support along with a 1.2GHz dual core processor. As a result, the Boost MAX makes browsing and performing multiple tasks easier and faster than ever before. Sprint 4G LTE is now available in 340 markets including such major cities as Atlanta, Boston, Houston, Los Angeles and San Juan Puerto Rico.
Boost Max can be paired with Boost Mobile’s no annual contract $55 Monthly Unlimited plan with Shrinking Payments. For every six on-time payments, the cost of Boost Mobile’s Monthly Unlimited plan shrinks by $5, eventually getting down to as low as $40 a month for unlimited nationwide talk, text and picture messaging, Web, email and calls to 411. Payments do not need to be consecutive to qualify for the next savings milestone.
