CTIA 2006 on-site report

 

 

The i580 is the latest and the most feature-rich ruggedized iDEN handset officially announced for Sprint Nextel. The successor of the i530 has the same functionality as the high-end i870 with the main features including microSD memory slot, which allows storing hours of music on a card, 1.3-megapixel camera with mirror, Bluetooth, 262k color screen and of course a robust speakerphone and Push-to-Talk. The phone is made of a solid embossed material, with the front and back plates are silver-colored furrower surface for comfortable grip. Like the rest of the rugged iDEN phones, the i580 conforms to military specifications for rain, dust, shock and vibration, making it just ideal for anyone working in extreme environments.
The handset should hit the Sprint Nextel store shelved in the 2nd quarter.

RAZR V3m:
As it was expected, Motorola also announced a new version of their V3 top seller. The V3m is practically identical to the V3c CDMA RAZR currently offered by Verizon, with the only difference being the added microSD memory expansion and the Stereo headset support via the mini-USB port. The microSD slot is located under the battery, so hot-swapping is not supported. In any other way it is identical to the V3c and has the same design (colored in dark grey) and features (Bluetooth, EV-DO). The V3m changes neither the 65k color display, nor the 1.3-megapixel camera of its predecessor.
The V3m expected to be released in the first half of the year, with both Verizon and Spring being spelled as potential carriers (unofficially of course).

W315:
is expected-to-become-hit device from the makers of the RAZR, targeted at the budget-conscious consumers, with entry-level features in a sleek, contemporary design. The latter is its strongest point - the W315 copies the design of the popular PEBL GSM phone, bringing it to the masses of the CDMA market. Unfortunately it adds a stub-antenna, but this is something common for most CDMA phones.
The W315 has the same sleek black detailing, unique rounded shape, tactile, soft-touch housing as the PEBL, and although its inordinately shape the phone is held comfortably. When opened, it shows its main design difference from the PEBL - the keypad. The one on the PEBL is flat, as the RAZR's , while the W315 has regular rubber-like keypad. Gone is the VGA camera as well, and the display has been scaled down to CSTN with resolution of 128x160 pixels. The external display is still vertically positioned grayscale.

In a nutshell, if you want a very cool looking CDMA phone, and only care about its voice capabilities, the W315 is the phone for you. Although it is not officially announced, we expect the W315 to be available for Verizon Wireless sometime in Q3.

The VI-C290 is the first Motorola Vision-enabled CDMA phone and is already released by Sprint PCS.  The handset is an entry level clamshell with mediocre 65k color STN internal display and no external one. Due to this, when closed, it has clear simple lines, with only Motorola and Sprint logos on the front cover.
Through Sprint PCS Vision and WAP2.0 internet browser, the C290 can download images, ring tones, and games.
