Motorola i580 launched by Sprint in yellow

Sprint has just announced that a revamped version of its pretty old Motorola i580 iDEN rugged phone is now available.

The new handset comes in a “highly visible yellow” color, and it also brings a more powerful battery: a 1130 mAh one, which can provide a talk-time of up to 200 minutes.

Other than that, we’re talking about the same old phone. In consequence, you should know the i580 is certified to Military Standard 810 F for shock, vibration, dust, solar radiation, temperature extremes, low pressure, blowing rain, salt fog and humidity.


The specs of Motorola i580 include:

  • 1.9 inch TFT internal display with 262K colors and 176 x 220 pixels
  • White STN external display with 96 x 32 pixels
  • Nextel Direct Connect, iDEN 800/900 MHz
  • GPS
  • Bluetooth
  • MMS
  • 1.3MP camera
  • MicroSD card support
  • 3.8 x 2.2 x 1.1 inches
  • 5.1 ounces

The yellow Motorola i580 can be bought from Sprint right away, for $119 with a 2-yr contract agreement.
