Motorola i1 Best Buy

So you want an Android phone but don't want to be stuck in a long contract or pay an outrageous retail price for a DROID or EVO.  What's an Android lover to do?  Head over to Boost Mobile and grab yourself a Motorola i1.  The iDEN device, the first pre-paid Android phone available, will be sold exclusively at Best Buy for $349.99.  From the look of things, Boost will be offering their standard $50 per month pre-paid option for unlimited talk/text/web on the i1, which seems like a great deal for a ruggedized Android phone, especially considering that the next best option on Boost is the aging BlackBerry Curve 8330.  As of now, there's still no release date for the i1, but we'll keep you updated as news continues to trickle in.  So, are any of you planning on going the increasingly popular pre-paid route and picking up a Motorola i1?  Share your thoughts with us!
