Motorola shows i9 handset

Motorola on Monday revealed official photos of the previously spotted i9 handset at the FCC. The CDMA/iDEN handset allows Sprint subscribers to use the provider's push-to-talk service but is separated from other Motorola PTT-capable phones by its 3.1-megapixel camera instead of a 1.3MP shooter. It has similar controls to the cell phone maker's ROKR E8 device that switch functions depending on if the phone is in music or talk modes and its orientation.

The i9 will also have assisted GPS capabilities via Sprint's service and users will be able to hook up wireless headphones or sync the device to their cars as well as send and receive data to other compatible and close-by handsets thanks to Bluetooth functionality. There is still no official word on release dates or pricing information for the i9 handset. [via JustAMP]
