About one month after being announced for Boost Mobile, the Motorola Debut i856 is now available at Sprint too, as part of its Nextel Direct Connect line-up of handsets.
The i856 may not be the prettiest phone around, but it’s Sprint’s “first slider phone to offer push-to-talk service”, so it will probably not be overlooked by customers in need of a new iDEN device (unless they want a QWERTY keyboard too, in which case they should check out the Motorola Clutch i465).
The features of Motorola Debut include: 176 x 220 pixels TFT display, large Direct Connect button with backlight, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, stereo Bluetooth, threaded messaging, MMS, 1.3MP camera and MicroSD card support (up to 8GB).
Sprint sells the Motorola Debut i856 for $99.99 with a 2-yr contract agreement, or $299.99 free of contract.
