Motorola outs Clutch i465

Motorola has recently revealed specs of its first push-to-talk handset that has a full QWERTY keyboard, the Clutch i465. Originally spotted at the end of February and expected to reach Sprint or its subsidiary Boost Mobile, the phone is said to meet military-grade specifications for resistance to shock, vibration, dust and solar radiation.

Befitting the keyboard, the Clutch has comprehensive messaging support that includes text messaging and IM clients as well as e-mail access. Its features also include Bluetooth 1.2 capability, a micro USB port, as well as a 5-pole accessory connection and a 2.5mm mono audio jack. The 3-megapixel camera can capture videos as well as still images. MIDI, WAV and MP3 ringtones can be uploaded to the handset's 20MB of built-in memory, and there is no word on an external memory card slot. The 1,130mAh battery provides roughly 205 minutes of talk time.

No pricing information or release dates were revealed at the same time.
