Motorola Titanium

If you're looking for an Android phone with a front-QWERTY keyboard and the familiar "chirp-chirp" of Nextel Direct Connect, you've just found it in the Motorola Titanium. It's got a 3.1-inch touchscreen, Android 2.1 and is military-spec'd for dust, shock, vibration, low pressure, solar radiation, high temperature and low temperature. In other words, it'll survive a week at a smartphone trade show.

Other features for the Titanium, which is the follow-up to the Motorola i1, include:

  • Support for Nextel Direct Connect Services, including Direct Connect, Group Connect®, International Direct Connect®, DirectSendSM, Group Messaging and NextMail®
  • Android Market for access to more than 150,000 applications, widgets and games available for download
  • Google mobile services such as Google Search, Gmail, Google Talk, Google Maps with Navigation, syncing with Google Calendar™ and YouTube
  • Corporate email (Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync) and personal (POP3 & IMAP) email
  • 5-megapixel camera with camcorder, 4x zoom and flash
  • Wi-Fi b/g
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • GPS navigation
  • microSD slot, with a 2GB memory card included, supporting up to 32GB
  • 1820 mAh Lithium-ion battery

Motorola Titanium joins Sprint with iDEN Nextel Direct Connect capability

Tikl does not even come close to running as good as chirp, for the construction industry Nextel's PTT iDen system is (unfortunately) the only solution/option

and I personally ecstatic that there is a new smartphone coming out for iDEN

Sprint wants to wind down iDEN in 2013. Investors and the CEO want to. It is a real drag on their books.
