Following its earlier launch on subsidiary Boost
, Sprint Nextel proper has now seen fit -- as expected
-- to launch the hottest iDEN
phone ever created, Motorola's Stature i9
. $199.99 on contract after rebate will buy you a 3.1 megapixel cam, GPS, Bluetooth, microSD expansion, and all the iDEN-powered Direct Connect action you can handle; why these guys opted to push this thing down to Boost first is totally unclear to us, but hey, it's available to the traditional Nextel cats now too, so no hard feelings.
