Sprint announces the intrinsically safe Motorola i365IS
Motorola i365IS is the name of the newest push-to-talk handset announced by Sprint for its Nextel Direct Connect network.
Well, the phone itself is actually not that new, since it’s just an intrinsically safe (IS) version of Motorola i365, which is offered by Sprint since the fall of 2008.
Being intrinsically safe, the i365IS provides “a protection technique for safe operation of electronic equipment in explosive atmospheres, when used with IS battery and accessories.”
Other than that, the device looks similar to the i365 and it has the same features, including:
- Ultra-rugged design, meeting military specs for dust, humidity, blowing rain, vibration and shock
- 64K colors display with 130 x 130 pixels
- Second Line Service
- GPS navigation
- 5.3 x 2.1 x 1.2 inches
- 7.05 ounces
- Talk time: up to 300 minutes
Sprint doesn’t say how much the Motorola i365IS costs, and neither when it will be available for purchase (but this should happen pretty soon).
