Motorola Admiral to become leader of Sprint's PTT fleet

Motorola Admiral to become leader of Sprint's PTT fleet
Recently we saw a video about the Motorola Admiral on YouTube. Since then, the video has been taken down which means that it is a good thing that some pictures of the Admiral were discovered in the wild, especially since Sprint has yet to officially introduce the model. According to the person who snapped the pix, the device is top heavy and the bottom is thin making it awkward to hold. The device meets military specifications as far as weathering the elements is concerned. The phone is resistant to dust, shock, solar radiation and high and low temperature.

The Motorola Admiral  has a 3.1 inch display with resolution of 480 x 600. A single-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM 8655 processor is under the hood and a 5MP rear camera captures video at 720p. Motorola's proprietary UI runs on top of Android 2.3. 4GB of internal memory comes on board and that can be expanded using a microSD card. Powering the Motorola Admiral is an 1860mAh battery.

Since this device has yet to be announced by Sprint or Motorola, we have no pricing or availability date. According to one of the latest Sprint Facebook issues, everything seems all set to go for the Motorola Admiral  except for one unknown problem involving the handset's QWERTY keyboard. Once that gets resolved, the Motorola Admiral is expected to be ruling the mighty Direct Connect seas at Sprint.

Also one should consider that since BB has not produced another push to talk, and is rumored to have one later this year; this has no competition and allows it to "set the bar/standard." Coupled with the fact that it offers the "android" option is going to make it hard to beat/compete.

this is mostly for construction workers and outdoor working people, not for people who sit at the computer all day

Sorry, Moto. You used to be my favorite brand. After Giggle and Android, no thanks. Another great name died. I hope that one day Moto will start making good phones again.

A rugged phone is never going to be the sleekest out there you realize? Different people have different needs. A broken phone isn't too good looking either, when your business depends on it.
