Rumor: Motorola Opus One Renamed to ‘i1’


The eagle-eyed chaps over at Engadget just picked up on another Android-based Motorola handset that passed through the FCC. Doing their best impression of Encyclopedia Brown, they’re guessing that the handset with the model name of ‘i1’ is the same we’ve previously reported as the Opus One. For those not familiar, this would be the first iDen handset to run Android and likely end up on Sprint or Boost Mobile.

In addition to iDEN, the handset includes Bluetooth 2.1 and WiFi. Engadget assumes, and we tend to agree, that this will be a smartphone. Codenames and final products get changed all the time so this wouldn’t surprise us in the least. Now the question becomes, when will we see this phone announced? Perhaps a few weeks from now at CTIA?

A quick recap of the specs gathered to date:

  • 3.1″ HVGA (320—480) capacitive touchscreen
  • 3 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash
  • Accelerometer, Proximity sensor, A-GPS
  • Wi-Fi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth
  • microSD card slot
  • 2.5mm headset jack
  • Home, Menu, Back, Speaker buttons are capacitive buttons with haptic feedback
  • iDEN PTT & PTX
  • Android LBS which is integrated into the iDEN GPS engine
  • 58mm in width, 118mm in length, 100g weight
  • 512MB Flash / 256MB of RAM
  • 64k and 128k iDEN SIM card support
  • Motorola dual-mic technology noise-canceling for noisy enviroments
  • Flash Lite v3.1.x
  • Corporate email client with ActiveSync support, MOTONAV navigation app, barcode scanner, and document viewer.

  1. The Motorola i1 with Android is expected to be announced officially within the following weeks, most probably during the CTIA at the end of this month. Moreover, the phone is said to pack inside Google’s Android 1.5 operating system, with Motorola’s user experience thrown over it, and should sport a 3-megapixel photo snapper with LED flash on the back.

  2. I guess its an exceptional feature which we have discovered here to make it more stunning and beneficial.Codenames and final products get changed all the time so this wouldn’t surprise us in the least.
