We knew from last year that Moto was working on an iDEN Android handset dubbed Opus One, but now it seems that device is meant for a name change, so it’ll be called Motorola i1. The handset will use the MOTOBLUR UI, social networks and widgets included, plus a pretty decent set of specs.


This iDEN phone will probably use Android 1.5 OS, although this is a mere speculation for now and there’s always the possibility for an update. The folks of Engadget expect the device to be announced at CTIA near the end of the current month, so we’ll be getting more details then.

Motorola i1 features a 3 inch capacitive TFT display, with a 320 x 480 pixel resolution, a 3 megapixel camera with LED flash, autofocus and digital zoom, plus MP3 and MPEG4 playback support. The former Opus One also incorporates a microSD/microSDHC card slot, 256 MB RAM, 512 MB ROM, WiFi, Bluetooth and a 2.5mm audio jack.
