Motorola i1 Introduced On Push-To-Talk iDEN Networks
The Motorola i1 has been introduced for the iDEN network that offers phone users an instant talk feature similar to walkie talkies. iDEN is a proprietary technology of Motorola.
The Motorola i1 phone is built to withstand rough use. So, it can be resistant to blowing rain, extreme temperature, dust, shock vibration, salt fog, humidity and low pressure.
The set features a big 3.1 inch touchscreen and looks like other smartphones. The other features that come with this Motorola set include a 5MP camera, Bluetooth, a microSD memory card slot, a music player, Opera Mini 5 browser and Google services like Gmail, Google Maps and Google Talk. There is no Wi-Fi with the i1 phone.
Users can also download applications from the Android Market. There is also a new technology called Swype, which allows users to type messages quickly using on-screen keyboards.
Though, the Motorola i1 phone has some drawbacks like older version of Android and relatively slow data rate, the set looks a nice option for a customer. The set is expected to hit the stores in second quarter this year. However, the other details including the pricing has not been disclosed yet.
