Sorry--I'm a couple days late with this, but I was a bit distracted by Macworld yesterday. Yes, there are other cell phones than the iPhone, and Moto gave us a new one yesterday with the i570 for Sprint Nextel. Like the recent i335 the i570 takes after the Nextel-branded phones of a couple years ago by running only on the iDEN network and offering a rugged shell that's built to last. The flip-phone offers a monochrome external display, a color internal display and all the Nextel features you'd expect including Direct Connect push-to-talk support, voice dialing, a speakerphone and GPS. You can get it now for $99.99 with service.
Mozilla is working on a major overhaul of its web browser. Its official release is still months away, but you can take Firefox 57 for a spin today.
