Boost Mobile, ranked by J.D. Power and Associates as the Highest in Overall Customer Satisfaction with Non-Contract Wireless Service1, and Kyocera Communications Inc., provider of Kyocera- and Sanyo-branded wireless devices, today announced the latest device from Boost Mobile, the Sanyo Innuendo by Kyocera.
This QWERTY fold phone sports an elegant, high-gloss black and silver finish that comes to life with a unique external glow-thru dial pad and sub-display outside and a vivid 2.8-inch, WQVGA internal display. Innuendo is the successor to the Sanyo Incognito, Boost’s best-selling CDMA Series device to date, providing a larger screen and a higher-resolution, 3.2-megapixel camera.
Similar to previous Sanyo-branded devices by Kyocera, Innuendo will be on Boost’s dependable nationwide network with fewer dropped and blocked calls than T-Mobile2. Innuendo uses an intuitive, customizable “application carousel” user interface to navigate the phone’s many features. It delivers advanced music, video and Web browsing experiences for customers looking to stay connected with friends via their favorite social networking sites.
Innuendo is available now for $129.99 (excluding taxes) at Boost Mobile’s exclusive retail stores, select independent wireless dealer locations across the country and at www.boostmobile.com with free shipping. Innuendo is also rolling out now in major retail outlets nationwide.
“The launch of the Sanyo Innuendo illustrates Boost’s commitment to provide our customers the phones they want at a reasonable price, along with Boost’s award-winning, no-contract service,” said Andre Smith, vice president-Boost Mobile. “When paired with Boost’s $50 Monthly Unlimited plan, smart shoppers can cut their monthly phone bill in half compared to similar offers from T-Mobile that required a two-year contract.”
Additional savings can be achieved by simply making on-time payments. The Sanyo Innuendo is available on Boost Mobile’s $50 Monthly Unlimited with Shrinkage plan, where the longer you stay, the less you pay. For every six on-time payments, a Boost Mobile customer’s monthly cost will shrink by $5, eventually getting down to as low as $35 a month for unlimited nationwide talk, text, Web, email, IM and calls to 411. Payments do not need to be consecutive to qualify for these savings milestones.
“Innuendo is a phone that makes a statement before it even rings,” said Yasuhiro Oishi, president of Kyocera Communications Inc. “When you pair the amazing value of Boost’s service plans with the styling and features of this phone, you get quite a package.”

* External touch-sensitive keypad
* Internal full QWERTY keypad
