Sprint today announced the recent availability of a new app (Sprint Direct Connect Now) that adds push-to-talk features to Android smartphones such as the Kyocera Rise and forthcoming LG Optimus Elite.  Available as a free app, it basically adds the same PTT service that comes with Direct Connect models but without the physical button.

Sprint Direct Connect Now key features:

  • Interoperable with Nextel Direct Connect and Sprint Direct Connect
  • Group Connect calls up to 21 participants
  • Call alerts to notify others you want to talk without interrupting
  • Convenient touchscreen controls
  • Displays contact image for speaker
  • Synchronizes contacts with device’s address book
  • Creates favorites for most contacted Direct Connect contacts

    Can’t wait to use this! I’m a Sprint Technician and am sooo tired of the Moto Admiral. Finally we can start selling the good Android devices to customers who want DC!! They get the best deals anyway because of the Nextel situation.
