07/01/2013, Sprint's Nextel iDEN network is officially dead.
05/05/2011, Sprint announced that they will have two Android business phones arriving on their network. The first one was the Motorola XPRT, and next in line we have the Motorola Titanium. This business-catered phone is built to be more durable than regular phones, so you can expect to find these phones in the pockets of people working at construction sites – or folks with a habit of dropping their devices. How […]
04/01/2011, OK, so here’s a handset that probably isn’t going to turn too many heads even when you whip it out from your pocket – we’re talking about the Motorola iDen phone, having made its way to the FCC. No idea on who else wants to use iDen handsets in this day and age, but we guess that if there is a market, surely Motorola wants to fulfil that niche. Known […]
02/02/2011, Are you seeing double, you ask? Perhaps when you lay your eyes on two upcoming phones, your answer might be in the affirmative. Thanks to Pocketnow for the image on the right, we do know that Sprint is working on one of the two seemingly similar Android-powered QWERTY candybar phones, although they are for different networks and from different manufacturers. This Samsung handset will run on Sprint’s CDMA network, where […]
01/31/2011, When Verizon Wireless rolled out the Motorola Droid Pro some time ago, we never really expected to see a doppelganger of sorts – but fast forward to today, and you get the Motorola i1Q iDEN Android smartphone, boasting a touchscreen display and full QWERTY keyboard located right below. It has already appeared in Argentinian website GrupoAndroid, boasting the Nextel logo behind, hence confirming it as an iDEN handset. Too bad […]
10/27/2010, Things aren’t looking up for iDEN network users, since Sprint CEO Dan Hesse just mentioned that his company will eventually shut down their iDEN network. This isn’t an option but will be carried out, although no timeline was attached to the process, and the shutting down will be performed gradually. This move was made to free up some channels to put CDMA services onto Sprint’s 800 MHz iDEN spectrum, at […]
09/30/2010, Motorola’s latest iDEN handset for the mass market comes in the form of the new i886, where it will be powered by the Android operating system while featuring a full QWERTY keyboard for those of you who still cannot get used to a full touchscreen display. What makes the i886 all the more special is the fact that it will feature a secondary alphanumeric keyboard, making it more or less […]
05/07/2010, Motorola somehow leaked out its i897 Amphora (seen on the right) and WX415 Heartland clamshell handsets, where the former is an iDEN model, featuring a Ferrari logo located right under the internal display which obviously suggests that it is another Ferrari-Motorola tie-up. It seems that Sprint will be the most likely candidate to offer the phone in the US, although there is no release date attached to it just yet. […]
03/06/2010, A leaked live picture of what is apparently the Motorola Opus One has surfaced, and it seems that this device is going to be Motorola’s first Android-powered iDEN phone. When it was leaked a while back, it was speculated that it would be powered by Android 1.5, but considering that Android 2.0 and 2.1 are getting more and more common, do you think that when this phone is officially released […]
12/22/2009, The Motorola Opus One has been covered before, but never in such detail. Here are the specifications we managed to scoop concerning Motorola’s first iDEN Android handset, where it will run on Android 1.5 with iDEN service enhancements with a Zeus processor running proceedings from within. You will also get preloaded apps that include corporate email client with ActiveSync support, MOTONAV navigation app, barcode scanner and document viewer with each […]
12/06/2009, We mentioned the Motorola Opus One a few months back, which should be Motorola’s first Android iDEN cell phone. While there haven’t been any official pictures released just yet, the folks over at Boy Genius have managed to dig up some pictures of what is supposedly the Opus One. Specifications of the phone haven’t been confirmed yet, but based on the pictures that have surfaced, what do you think?
10/16/2009, Nextel looks set to receive the Motorola iDEN i410 clamshell handset, at least that’s what we garnered from a FCC document that featured Nextel’s logo on the handset itself. Expect the Motorola i410 to come with an external and internal display, large keys within for easier typing, MMS support, GPS navigation and Bluetooth connectivity – you won’t get a digital camera built-in though. No word on pricing or availability as […]
08/06/2009, Whispers abound that Sprint will most probably offer this iDEN-powered Motorola ROKR to those who are still interested. Any idea whether any of your mates are willing to sport an iDEN slider? Perhaps if the clock was rolled back by 5 years or so, they might. Well, if you’re interested in picking this up when available, do make sure you pair it up with Boost and a monthly unlimited rate […]
05/03/2009, Motorola has just announced their latest Clutch i465 iDEN device that doesn’t look half bad at all – at least when compared to other iDEN phones on the market. It seems as though the iDEN phone segment is the graveyard for poor designs where mainstream phones are concerned, btu we digress. The Clutch i465 boasts military-tough durability and will be out Stateside sometime before June. Boost Mobile will be the […]
