Motorola and Sprint Announce World’s First Push-To-Talk Android-Powered Smartphone - Motorola i1
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.

Stay tuned for our Live Report from CTIA beginning tomorrow!
