Motorola Brings Android To Push-To-Talk Phone

The Motorola i1 will be the first mobile phone with Google's Android operating system, on a push-to-talk (i.e., no contract required) device.

By being offered by Sprint, the i1 is monumental in redefining not only Android but also the push-to-talk market. Those phones are usually the bottom of the barrel with skim features. The i1 aims to change that.

The announcement came at the CTIA Wireless convention in Las Vegas, the annual mobile show that is organized by the mobile phone industry trade group.

"As the first Nextel Direct Connect Android smartphone, Motorola i1 with Wi-Fi offers a powerful tool for our customers with access to thousands of applications in the Android Market," said Fared Adib, a VP at Sprint.

Swype's new virtual keyboard will be pre-installed, the phone has a 5-megapixel camera and 3.1-inch HVGA screen, and Opera Mini 5 comes as the default browser.

The i1 will be available this summer. Pricing details have not been announced.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
