Sprint’s QChat Lineup Revealed

Sprint’s QChat Lineup Revealed
We have brought you bits and pieces of Sprint’s impending QChat launch, but for the first time we have solid info on the full portfolio of devices. All of these will be branded under the Nextel Direct Connect (NDC) moniker and are backwards compatible with the existing iDEN PTT devices. Common features include Direct Connect and Group Talk, Sprint Navigation, Bluetooth, speakerphone, Sprint Mobile Email and Mobile Sync. The last one allows users to manage their contacts online, as well as set up groups for DC and text/voice messaging. This service will also instantly sync changes between the phone and the website.

QChat users will have the choice of using one number option for both PTT and voice services, though customers wishing to have two separate numbers can do so as well. Current iDEN customers will still retain the two-number system. The Sanyo PRO devices will launch first, possibly as soon as April 16th, with the rest of the models slated for this summer.

Sanyo

Pro-200 is an entry level phone with clamshell form-factor and slim design. Look for a $50 price-point.

Pro-700 is almost identical to the Pro-200, but certified to military standards for dust, shock and vibration. Launch price of $70.


Samsung

Z400 is a mid-range rugged device, meeting Military specification 810F. It also features a 1.3 megapixel camera and a camcorder.

Z700 is one of the two high class QChat devices: it features a 2.0-megapixel camera, a microSD expansion, external music controls and support for SprintTV, Radio and Music Store.
