Motorola i856 - a good-looking iDEN slider
Imagine a future, where iDEN phones rule the world! We know, it can’t be that bad. But as you see, Motorola seems to be putting a lot of effort into making some decently-looking, maybe even pretty, handsets for the iDEN network. First, it was the Stature i9 clamshell, and now, a few images of a nice slider have leaked. We are speaking of the so-called i856, which shows off a stylish design with a striking red keypad, similarly to Samsung’s newly announced UltraTOUCH. Well, apart from the red keypad, the two phones have really nothing in common. The PTT-capable i856 has a completely acceptable 2.2-inch screen, modest 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0 support and a microSD card slot for additional storage space.  Moto is said to roll it out around the end of Q3 2009, at a slightly lower price than the one of the i9.
