Need a phone that can survive the elements? The Motorola Titanium is an Android device that is built to withstand the weather and more. After all, Motorola is a very big communications supplier to the military and those devices are built to last through combat. You probably won't be facing a situation like that, but you can relax knowing that your Titanium is built to Military Specifications for protection against dust, shock, low pressure, temperature, vibrations and solar radiation According to a leaked internal memo for Sprint reps, the Titanium is expected to launch on July 24th with Android 2.1 running the show. There is a physical QWERTY keyboard under the 3.1 inch display and a 5MP camera on the back that captures video. The handset supports Nextel Direct Connect which means that an important conversation could be as quick as a button push away.

The Motorola Titanium will have a price tag of $149.99 with a signed two year contract and Sprint is sweetening the deal by throwing in a 2GB microSD card (you can load up to a 32GB card on the device). Sprint's own memo suggests that reps sell the Motorola Titanium to business types looking for a rugged phone with PTT support and a QWERTY keyboard, or to consumers looking for a Android phone that is rugged and has a QWERTY keyboard. With the phone built to military specs, we would also suggest that Sprint reps look for those with butterfingers who are constantly dropping their phone. Those who are looking for an Android device with the latest high-end specs should obviously be looking elsewhere.

why Android 2.1? Is this a joke? This is the replacement for the i1, which was Android 1.5 when all the other phones were on 2.1.
