Motorola Opus One is the Boost Mobile i1

We have been reporting on a possible Boost Mobile Android handset since last July and it looks like one might finally be around the corner. The phone we have known as the Motorola Opus One (pics and specs) is going to be named the Boost Mobile i1 according to a report from Engadget. The i1 was recently spotted on the FCC web site and is expected to be announced during CTIA later this month.

Boost Mobile is known for their low priced, no contract plans that are paired with cheap phones. They recently started offering the BlackBerry Curve 8830 which was their first smartphone and most expensive handset ($249). The Curve is packaged with a $60/month unlimited everything plan and we expect a similar deal for Android phones.

Motorola is aiming for the low end and the i1 might be the lowest priced Android device at launch. Look for this phone to debut under $300.
