Boost Mobile introduced today the Samsung Factor, a no-frills, wallet-friendly cell phone for those who want to stick to the basics. The clamshell handset offers Bluetooth, a camera, Web and e-mail access, instant messaging capabilities, and text and multimedia messaging, but its main job is to make calls.

The Factor is available now at exclusive Boost Mobile retail stores, as well as online and at select independent dealers, for $49.99. It's expected be available nationwide at the end of April.
