On Friday, Motorola introduced its latest iDEN phone, the Motorola Clutch i465. The Clutch is the company's first iDEN handset to include a full QWERTY keyboard, and it offers threaded text messaging as well as support for multimedia messages and e-mail.

The i465 features a ruggedized design and meets military specifications for extreme conditions (e.g., shock, vibration, and dust). It also has a 1.79-inch, 128x160 TFT display, a VGA camera, Bluetooth 1.2, and 20MB of user-accessible memory.

The Clutch i465 is expected to ship in Q2. No details about pricing or carrier announcements were specified at press time, but the handset is compatible with Sprint and Boost Mobile's network, and given the feature set, we can't imagine the cost will be too high.
