Motorola i1: Sprint’s Push-to-Talk Android Tough Guy
Sprint and Motorola announced the i1 today, a new Android phone featuring push-to-talk functionality on Sprint’s iDEN network, “military spec” toughness and a few interesting extras.
Besides its rugged good looks, the i1 includes a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, a 3.1 inch HVGA screen, and a nice slate of preinstalled apps: Swype virtual keyboard, Opera Mini 5 browser, and Microsoft Document Viewer. In addition, Flash 8-enabled sites will work in the Android browser via Flash Lite.
The i1 does have a few significant downsides, though: it will launch sporting Android 1.5 and one of those tiny 2.5mm jacks that none of your headphones will fit into. And while you’ll zip along on wifi networks, don’t expect to be able to pull data via 3G.
Sprint has not specified a release date for the i1, but does have an i1 site where you can sign up to be alerted about its availability.
