Motorola has added three new phones to Boost Mobile's offerings today with the Motorola Clutch + i475, the Motorola Theory, and the Motorola i412.

The Clutch +i475 is an update to the Motorola Clutch from a couple years ago. The new Clutch has a larger display while still maintaining that candy bar design with a full QWERTY keyboard. Features appear to be mostly the same. They include push-to-talk, GPS, Bluetooth, threaded messaging, e-mail and Web, and unfortunately, a VGA camera.

The Theory is another candy bar QWERTY phone, but it lacks push-to-talk. It has a slightly better 1.3-megapixel camera. Other features are about the same as the Clutch +i475.

Last but not least is the i412, which is the simplest phone of the lot. It has a straightforward flip style with features like iTap, a predictive text mode, a VGA camera, Web access, GPS, Bluetooth, and Java app support. The i412 also has push-to-talk over Sprint's iDEN network.

The Motorola Clutch +i475 is available for $99.99 today, while the Theory will be available June 7 for $79.99 and the i412 will be available June 13 for $69.99.
