First Look: Motorola Admiral (Sprint)

1:32 /

Responsive, functional, and tough, the Motorola Admiral makes a great workhorse phone, especially for anyone working in a tough environment. BlackBerry users will also find it a smooth transition if they want to move to the Android platform.

Hello, my name is Dong Ngo and for those who have been following me, I have something completely new today, not a hard drive, not a router but a phone. For the rest of you who've been wondering what's that guy talking about? Don't worry about it. You don't miss anything. So this is the Motorola Admiral from Sprint. It runs Android 2.3 a.k.a. Gingerbread and features both a hardware QWERTY keyboard and a touchscreen. The phone's camera can also record HD video of 720p resolution. The picture quality for both photos and videos vary depending on the lighting but overall it's okay for a phone. Powered by a 1.2-gigahertz processor and 512 megabyte of RAM, the Admiral is very snappy. Mot apps open instantly. We especially like the Hotspot app that allows the phone to work at a mobile hotspot sharing its cellular connection to up to 5 Wi-Fi devices. Speaking of cellular, the Admiral works on Sprint 3G CDMA network. The phone unfortunately doesn't support 4G, and since 3G is not GSM-based, you can't surf and talk at the same time. It also has built-in GPS and Bluetooth. Priced at $100 after rebate and with a 2-year contract, the Admiral makes a great phone for those who need a workhorse, rugged and stylish mobile communication solution. Once again, my name is Dong Ngo and this has been the First Look at the Motorola Admiral smartphone from Sprint.
