i465 - Motorola’s first iDEN phone to support QWERTY
Lately, a lot of manufacturers have come to the conclusion that phones, equipped with a full QWERTY keyboard may be a good source of revenues, especially if they get into the hands of hardcore texting users. And here we aren’t talking about the business-oriented users only, but also about the ones that use their phones mainly for fast and cheap messaging.

Following this trend, Motorola is also preparing its low-end QWERTY solution, the i465. It won’t be running Windows Mobile, or any other operating system. The device will be a typical low-end phone, but with one unique feature - a full QWERTY keyboard. Other extras will include a VGA camera and Bluetooth 2.0. The i465 is obviously targeted at the younger users, giving them the opportunity to easily and handily write SMS messages; however, it hasn’t been officially announced yet, so don’t expect any information on the exact release date and the price.

This is most likely going to head to Boost with the new $50 Unlimited Everything plan currently in play.
