Moto Tundra goes on sale

The rugged Motorola Tundra, which made its debut only a week ago at CES, goes on sale at AT&T.

Get your Moto Tundra for $199. Motorola

It's always a good sign when a cell phone introduced at CES actually makes it to a carrier. And it's an even better sign when that phone goes on sale just a week after the show.

Thursday, AT&T formally introduced the Motorola Tundra VA76r . In case you didn't catch our coverage from Las Vegas, the Tundra is a rugged push-to-talk phone that fits a hole in AT&T's lineup. Features include 3G, a 2-megapixel camera, support for AT&T's TeleNav GPS Navigator, Bluetooth, personal organizer applications, 100MB of internal memory, and a memory card slot.

The Tundra also offers Moto's new CrystalTalk Plus feature, which adds a second microphone to screen out background noise. We tried it at CES and liked what we heard. We also gave the phone a brief shakedown , and we can report that its durable design should withstand a few blows.

The Tundra is available now for $199 with a two-year contract and a mail-in rebate.
