CTIA 2014 Super Mobility Week: Motorola i1 (Sprint Nextel)

1:35 /

At CTIA 2010, Sprint and Motorola debuted the first Google Android smartphone for Nextel and to our surprise, it's quite slick. Check out the First Look video here.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hi. I'm Bonnie Cha, Senior Editor at CNET.com, and we are here in Las Vegas for CTIA 2010, and we are taking a First Look at the Motorola i1. Now, this is the first Android device working on iDEN Network, so it's compatible with Sprint's Nextel's direct connect push-to-talk services. Also supports group connect, international talk, and all those great push-to-talk services that a lot of Nextel customers are fans of. It does have a rugged design that meets actual military specs, so it's, like, it can withstand dust, wind, and splash proof, things like that. So it's really nice. Here you've got your usual Android buttons as well as talk and end buttons and a navigational keypad. On this back here, you got a five-megapixel camera, so that's really nice. You've got a high-end camera here. And it also has a panoramic mode, so you can take a series of shots, and then it'll stitch them together for a panoramic mode. So this is, like we said before, Android. No Motoblur, it's Android 1.5. You know, we always kind of want a little more of an updated OS, but they wanted to build the iDEN capabilities on an established platform, which is why they went with Android 1.5. Other extras on here, it's shipping with Opera mobile web browser. It also has some other Sprint goodies, such as NFL mobile as well as Sprint Zone and TeleNav GPS Navigator and NASCAR. Again, we're looking forward to checking this out sometime this summer. And I'm Bonnie Cha, and this has been your First Look at the Motorola i1. ^M00:01:30 [ Music ]
