Video: Motorola i1 Android smartphone for Nextel and Boost Mobile

by: Michael OrylJuly 26, 2010

Yesterday I shot some video footage of the Motorola i1, the first Android powered smartphone to work on iDEN push-to-talk networks, such as those run by Sprint Nextel and Boost Mobile in the USA.

The i1 features a solid design that is resistant to dust, shock, and rain.  It runs only the 1.5 version of Android, though, and does not even feature Motorola’s MOTOBLUR social networking extensions. All three of our Motorola i1 videos are available in the playlist below.

Sprint has announced that it will offer the Motorola i1 Android phone starting July 25.  The i1 is a push-to-talk iDEN handset for Sprint’s Nextel customers that features a large 3.1-inch HVGA touchscreen display, a 5 megapixel camera and camcorder, an onscreen Swype keyboard, and WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity.  All of this is packed into a mil-spec casing to ensure ruggedness while in the outdoors.  The phone offers up to 3.5 hours of talk time or 4 days of standby.  The Motorola i1 for Sprint will be available starting July 25 for $150 (after $50 mail-in rebate) with a two-year service agreement.

Hands-on with Motorola’s i1 – the first iDEN Android phone

by: Michael OrylMarch 23, 2010

Motorola i1

While I was in the air heading to Las Vegas for the 2010 CTIA show, Motorola and Sprint launched the i1, the first iDEN Push-to-Talk smartphone running Android.  Later in the day I got a chance to shoot some videos and photos of the i1, as well as talk to Motorola about the phone.

It turns out that the i1 runs a pretty generic build of Android 1.5. No MOTOBLUR, only 3 homescreen panels, few non-standard widgets apart from the PTT widget for Direct Connect functions.  Motorola seemed to indicate that we could possibly expect a newer version of Android in a later OTA update, but refused to be nailed down on any specifics.
