Motorola Debut i856

Boost Mobile, a division of Sprint that offers wireless phones and services with no contracts and Motorola announced today the launch of its first push-to-talk slider phone. The Motorola Debut i856 gives Boost Mobile customers full advantage of a handset that glides open and closed with ease for instant communication. Motorola Debut will be available to consumers today with free shipping for the price of $169.99.

With its nationwide walkie-talkie and enhanced features, Debut is a perfect match for Boost’s $50 Monthly Unlimited plan, which offers unlimited, nationwide, anytime calling, text messaging, wireless Web and walkie-talkie service in 17,500 cities throughout the United States on the Nextel National Network - all with no additional telecom taxes, activation, roaming, traveling or long distance fees.

When you need a fast response, Motorola Debut manages the conversation with favorite push-to-talk features. The compact slider design gives easier access to the keypad along with the security of keeping keys protected when not in use.

Once your message is ready to go, send it in the background and move on to other applications.
