What the Motorola i1 may lack in specs, it makes up for in connectivity. As the only Android phone with PTT (push-to-talk) it fills the needs of many who rely on this service in their every day lives.
It's also a ruggedized, Mil-Spec handset. This may not mean much to you or I, but for the first responder types and guys out in the weather on the jobsite (exactly the type that need PTT!) it's a godsend, and they wouldn't be able to use a phone that isn't this tough.
