On Monday, Sprint introduced its latest Nextel Direct Connect phone, the Motorola Brute i680. Described as "an extreme phone for extreme conditions," the Brute i680 features a rugged design and meets Military Specification 810F, so it can withstand exposure to dust, shock, vibration, low and high temperatures, low pressure, solar radiation, salt, fog, humidity, and blowing rain.
The clamshell phone features color external and internal displays as well as a 2-megapixel camera, GPS, stereo Bluetooth, and offers up to 5.8 hours of talk time. The phone also comes preloaded with TeleNav Navigation, Nascar Sprint Cup Mobile, and NFL Mobile Live.
The Motorola Brute i680 is available from Sprint now for $119.99 with a two-year contract.
