Running Android Android 2.1 Eclair and featuring Push to Talk technology, the handset offers subscribers a 3.1-inch touch display, full portrait QWERTY keyboard, and 5-megapixel camera.

Full press release follows.
SouthernLINC Wireless Rolls Out Motorola TITANIUM, the newest Android-powered Push To Talk Smartphone for iDEN
ATLANTA – Aug. 25, 2011 – Motorola TITANIUM™, the newest Android™-powered smartphone with Push To Talk for the Integrated Digital Enhanced Network (iDEN), is now available from SouthernLINC Wireless, a Southern Company (NYSE: SO).
Using Motorola’s iDEN technology that offers immediate, private communications, SouthernLINC Wireless combines Push To Talk two-way radio, cellular service, mobile Web access, and text and picture messaging into one, hand-held device.
The new Motorola TITANIUM is a slim, tablet-style smartphone that unites the interactivity of a 3.1-inch HVGA touch screen with the functionality of a full QWERTY keyboard. Plus, it gives users immediate private or GroupTALK™ Push To Talk two-way radio communications capabilities, so they can connect with one or many people at the push of a button. With a simple and intuitive interface, Android 2.1 Eclair operating system, integrated GPS capabilities, corporate connectivity and built-in Wi-Fi®, Motorola TITANIUM provides the tools to stay connected and productive.
“You can use the touch-screen QWERTY or the physical QWERTY keyboard to make text messaging and email communications fast and easy,” said Rodney Johnson, vice president of sales and distribution for SouthernLINC Wireless. “Whether you use your smartphone for work, play or both, Motorola TITANIUM’s dual keyboards offer users the best of both worlds.”
This smartphone is also packed with features, including voice commands, a music player, stereo Bluetooth® technology, a 3.5-millimeter stereo headset jack and a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus, flash, video, four times digital zoom and geotagging capabilities. Store images, videos and music on the included 2-gigabyte microSD HC memory card, or replace it with up to a 32 GB card, sold separately, to hold even more data.
More than 250,000 applications are available to browse and download from Android Market™, and with five display screens providing quick access to frequently used items, there is plenty of room to personalize Motorola TITANIUM with widgets, shortcuts and interactive wallpapers.
Moreover, Motorola TITANIUM synchs email, calendars and contacts from Gmail™ and Google Calendar™, Microsoft® Exchange, POP3 or IMAP, keeping active users connected to both personal and business accounts.
“And, when a text or email just won’t do, don’t let a noisy location keep you from making that phone call,” continued Johnson. “Motorola TITANIUM’s dual microphones cancel noise and optimize audio on voice calls, so you can be heard.”
In addition, the rugged Motorola TITANIUM is designed to meet Military Specification 810G for dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, low pressure and solar radiation, giving users reliability and durability in some of the harshest environments.
Motorola TITANIUM is now available for $149.99 after mail-in debit card rebate with either a two-year service agreement on a qualifying voice plan with data or an eligible contract renewal with a data plan.
