Dubbed as a handset for blue- and white-collar workers, Sprint took the wraps off its latest Nextel Direct Connect device, the Motorola i890.
The i890 offers the standard Direct Connect push-to-talk features as well as Group Connect, Direct Talk, Direct Send, and Next Mail. In addition, you get a 2-megapixel camera with fixed focus, 4x digital zoom, and video-recording capabilities. Not just for work, the Moto i890 also touts a built-in MP3 player, external media controls, and stereo Bluetooth.
Unlike some of the clunkier Nextel devices, the i890 has a sleek clamshell design (3.9 inches tall by 1.98 inches wide by 0.66 inch thick; 4.2 ounces) with a 1.8-inch, 65,000-color external display and a 2.2-inch QVGA internal display. The phone is available now for $129.99 with a two-year contract and $50 mail-in rebate.
