Boost Mobile’s Woodie

Boostmobile I860 Woody

Boost Mobile, the youth market flavor of Nextel, is offering limited edition versions of the Motorola i860 handset. There's a tattoo version, which walks a fine line between good and cheesy. The most recent style is this one featuring wood-grain details on the inside and top face. It's a pretty elegant contrast of tech and retro.

Boost is definitely doing good things despite the challenging parents, Motorola and Nextel. And the i860 is really the first iDen (Nextel / Boost) handset that I like.
