Verizon intros Moto Adventure push-to-talk phone

Moto V750 Adventure at VZW

Verizon this morning quietly introduced the Motorola Adventure V750, the carrier's first-ever phone based on Motorola's push-to-talk network. The handset uses EVDO Revision A-based cellular data to provide the same kind of instant talk as Sprint's iDEN service (which moves to the similar QChat format) but with the theoretically improved quality of the 3G network. The clamshell design is also ruggedized with US military-grade protection against dust, drops and other shocks, temperature, and water splashes.

In spite of its semi-professional focus, the Adventure is still pitched at home users with a 2-megapixel camera, a full media player with external music controls and support for Verizon's new Rhapsody subscription access, and support for other provider services such as V CAST Video and turn-by-turn mapping through VZ Navigator. A microSDHC card slot holds as much as 8GB or more of content.

Verizon pushes the cost of the phone relatively low with the new Motorola phone selling for $100 when paired with a two-year contract and a rebate; the company hasn't set an in-store date for the new flip design.

    Verizon is not using QCHAT technology, they are using Motorola Pust-to-Talk

    It's not Motorola PTT

    I went and dug up the Motorola PR out of curiosity - even they don't say Motorola Push-to-Talk, just Verizon. It's the same basic technology as Sprint, and Sprint's using QChat.
