Motorola has always been good to Sprint by offering the wireless carrier a healthy lineup of push-to-talk handsets that cater to the anyone who puts their phone through its paces. After a long weekend at CES, Sprint and Motorola announced the availability of the rugged looking Motorola Brute i680 which is a push-to-talk phone for Nextel. Don’t let its bulky look make you steer clear from this clamshell phone because it meets Military Specification 810F for shock, vibration, dust, extreme temperatures, humidity, and other forces that mother nature can dish out. Now what makes this phone unique is that it comes with Sprint Nextel’s exclusive Public Safety application – allowing public safety personnel to communicate if they are out of network range. Despite that attraction, its specs are nothing too unfamiliar – GPS, Bluetooth, 2-megapixel camera, 180MB of internal memory, and a 2.2” internal display with a 1.3” external one. If you see yourself requiring a handset with these features, then you’ll be happy to know that it’s available right now for $119.99 with a 2-year agreement.
