Sprint adds two rugged phones to its line
Today Sprint officially launched two new rugged phones by Motorola. The i365 is a tough iDEN phone in a candybar form-factor; replacement to the i355, it gets slimmed down a bit, but keeps the construction-grade appearance. . It is certified for military specification requirements including humidity, blowing rain, dust, shock and vibration. Additionally, its speakerphone is said to be two times louder than the standard volume, for PTT calls in loud environments. It is available for $90 with a two-year contract.

Sprint now offers also the Motorola Renegade V950, which was announced back in April. It is touted as the first QChat-powered phone to support a full range of multimedia data services and the first feature phone to offer NDC on Sprint. Like the i365, it is certified for dust, shock, vibration and blowing rain, but in contrast, it doesn't meet the standard for humidity. The Renegade will cost you $130 with a contract. Initially scheduled to compliment the Renegade in the PTT lineup was the Samsung Z700, but it looks as though the device has been canceled.
