Motorola i1 Android Smartphone Features Push-to-Talk Functionality

This is the big day of the CTIA debut, but Motorola is already rushing with an announcement of the i1 Android smartphone, hours before the show’s start. Moto i1 is a push-to-talk smartphone and the very first Android device to use the Sprint/Nextel iDEN Push-to-Talk Direct Connect Network.

Motorola i1 is expected to debut this summer, running Android 1.5 OS and featuring a 3.1 inch 320 x 480 pixel HVGA capacitive touchscreen display, WiFi, the Opera Mini 5 browser and a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash. The Swype virtual on-screen keyboard is also among the specs, as well as a 2.5mm audio jack, a 1400 mAh battery and a 2GB microSD memory card.

This handset also meets military specs, so it’ll be resistant to shocks, dust, vibration and rain, a premiere for an Android phone.
