The Motorola i335 is coming to Boost Mobile, and it's a tough little phone. To demonstrate, Boost dropped the thing off a building, ran over it with a car and gave it to a bunch of idiotic klutzes who tried to talk on the phone while skateboarding and other such activities. So if you're the kind of person who just can't manage to hold onto things without dropping them, this is the phone for you. If you have decent control over your body, perhaps other features will be more important to you. Different strokes for different folks, right? The i335 is available now for $60 from Boost. Hit the jump for the full press release.
