Motorola Quantico and Debut i856w announced
Today, Motorola unveiled a brand new rugged phone: Motorola Quantico, a clamshell that comes with a “tough-as-nails exterior” made out of rubber, chrome, glass and mesh.
The phone meets military specification 810F and can be submerged in water (1m) for up to 30 minutes without being damaged.
Other features and specs include: CDMA 1700/2100 and 800/1900 EVDO connectivity, 2.2 inch internal display with 176 x 220 pixels, 1.6 inch external display with 120 x 160 pixels, GPS, Stereo Bluetooth, Music player, 2.5mm headset jack, MMS, email, 1.3MP camera, MicroSD card support and a 1140 mAh battery.
Motorola Quantico will be available in the US before the end of 2009. No word on its price.
Another Moto phone introduced today is the Motorola Debut i856w – which is actually a new version of the Debut i856, launched by Sprint and Boost Mobile earlier this year.
The Motorola Debut i856w is available through Boost Mobile and it’s targeted at the carrier’s female consumers. It costs $149.99 and, as you can see in the photos above, it features “stylish ivory coloring and flattering front and back detailing” – which make it the pretties iDEN phone ever.
