Although it isn’t a high-end smartphone, prepaid Boost Mobile subscribers now have an Android option.

Sprint-owned Boost Mobile announced today that they will be offering a Pre-paid Android phone in their arsenal of “no credit needed” phones.

While it does have the Nextel-made-famous push-to talk/annoy functionality, the Motorola i1 runs an antiquated version of Android, version 1.5. ¬†That means a lot of the latest apps and functionality won’t be available at launch.

However, it does expand Android’s reach to those who prefer not to sign up for long term plans. ¬†Also, those without credit (new to US?, bad mortgage, etc.) can now join the Android ranks.

That might give Android’s market share another tiny… Boost.
