Even thought CTIA doesn't officially begin until Tuesday, that hasn't stopped Motorola from announcing today the new i1 Android push-to-talk smartphone. The Motorola i1
will be the first Android device to use the Sprint/Nextel iDEN Push-to-TalkDirect Connect network
and is expected to be released this summer. The Motorola i1 will run on the Android 1.5 OS and will feature a 3.1" 320x480 pixel
HVGA resolution capacitive touchscreen with 262K color support, Wi-Fi connectivity, Opera Mini 5 browser, 5MP autofocus camera with LED flash, Swype virtual on-screen keyboard, 2.5mm headset jack, and will include a 1400mAh battery and a 2GB microSD memory card (up to 32GB supported). While all this is nice, we're also impressed to heard that the Motorola i1 will meet Military Specifications
for protection against dust, shock, vibration and blowing rain...another first for an Android smartphone.
