Sprint quietly dropped another Android-powered handset in the lineup yesterday with the rugged Motorola i886. Running an unknown version of Android, the phone is the first to feature a side-sliding QWERTY keyboard with Nextel Direct Connect. The specs are nothing to get excited over but that should be expected at a $79.99 price point.
Details include a 2-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, group messaging and GPS support. Even after we checked Sprint.com we came away scratching our heads at the meat and potatoes hardware. All we really know at this point is that the phone is built to handle the 810G military specifications and can handle all the shock, vibration, dust, and extreme temperatures you can throw at it.
Pick one up for $79.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a two-year service agreement.
