ZTE Warp Sequent, Samsung Galaxy Rush now available on Boost MobileAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Looks like Boost Mobile customers now have a couple more Android-powered options to choose from when selecting a new handset, as the carrier has begun offering the ZTE Warp Sequent and the Samsung Galaxy Rush. The Warp Sequent, which is the follow-up to the ZTE Warp that launched in late 2011, features a 4.3-inch qHD (960x540) display and a 1.3-megapixel camera on its face, as well as a 5-megapixel shooter on its rear. Inside is a 1.4GHz MSM8655 processor, 768MB RAM, 4GB storage and a 1,650mAh battery. Users can also add a microSD card for increased memory. The Warp Sequent runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is priced at $199.99 sans contract.
Next up is the Samsung Galaxy Rush, which we first got a peek at in late August. The Galaxy Rush packs a 3.5-inch display along with a 3-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter, 1GHz processor and Android 4.0. Pricing for the Galaxy Rush is set at $149.99.
While the ZTE Warp Sequent and Samsung Galaxy Rush may not feature 4G connectivity like a couple of other recent additions to Boost Mobile's lineup, both devices still look like they could be worth considering for folks in the market for a new phone. The Warp Sequent features one of the larger screens available on Boost, resting below the Galaxy S II 4G and its 4.52-inch display, and the Galaxy Rush and its 3.5 incher could be a good fit for fans of smaller screens. If either of these new phones have you reaching for your wallet, you can find the Warp Sequent's "Add to cart" button here and the Rush's here.
