Android-based Motorola i886 – the first iDEN phone with two keyboards (QWERTY included)
After launching the Moto Clutch and the Moto i1, Motorola has probably thought it would be a good idea to take two of these iDEN devices’ main features and put them in a new handset, namely the Motorola i886.
The i886 runs Android (like the i1) and has a full QWERTY keyboard (like the Clutch – well, almost like the Clutch, because the i886’s keyboard is a sliding one). It even has a second, alphanumeric keyboard – and I believe it’s the first Android device to have this form factor (it’s the first iDEN one, for sure).
The phone features GPS, accelerometer, Push-to-Talk, Bluetooth, Web browser, 2MP camera with video recording, and MicroSD card support.
The Motorola i886 is not yet announced, but the FCC has just approved it, providing at the same time the handset’s User’s Guide (where all the above info was found).
Sprint / Boost Mobile could launch the handset in the US, although we have no idea when, and neither for what price. But we’ll keep you posted.
