Some Notable Features
The i9 is actually another successor of the Razr family of handsets. It can be called one of the most stylish Nextel phones in the market. Well, contrary to that many feel that the styling is somehow old fashioned.
It has sleek angular design. So fits nicely in a small space. Since, i9 is light weight you can carry it in hands quite comfortably.
The i9 has 262,000 color external supportive and vibrant 2.2 inches display. It has sharp graphics, colors and impressive resolution.
Like all other touch controls handsets the keys of i9 are slippery too but they give amazing feedback. It has a rocking music player with excellent sound quality, simple interface and comes with a number of themes and visualizations.
The 3.1 MP camera shoots pictures in seven different resolutions. It’s powered by an excellent 8X digital zoom. The camcorder records videos in three different resolutions. It offers an excellent editing option too. Unfortunately, the image quality is not up to expectation. Most images are blur and dark.
Unfortunately none of the online marketers have listed exact price of this handset yet. Don’t worry it will be available soon. However, the prices offered by BoostMobile for Motorola Stature i9 is $249.99, which seems to be much higher for the device.
Overall, it’s an average handset with a mixed bag. It has some quality features but quite often user reviews don’t go in favor of it. Checkout the device right on the BoostMobile website.
