ZTE's Iconic Phablet comes to Boost Mobile as the Max, available today for $300

ZTE's Iconic Phablet may have been the worst-named product of CES 2014, but fortunately the company has told us it was merely a placeholder name. Despite it only having been unveiled three weeks ago, it's already making its way stateside under a much more reasonable (though predictable) name of Boost Max for Boost Mobile, one of Sprint's prepaid legs. The 5.7-inch 720p device is available starting today sans contract for $300, and it appears that the phone didn't lose its Multi-Window feature (which works with virtually every app on your device) on its way across the Pacific. It did, however, get bumped down to Android 4.1, two versions lower than the one we played with at CES. On top of this, you'll also get an 8MP rear camera with 1MP front-facing cam, LTE support, 3,200mAh battery and a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor. If you're disappointed by the name change for some reason, don't worry -- it can forever be an iconic phablet in your heart.
