Motorola i890 with push-to-talk now at Sprint
Sprint has added its latest push-to-talk handset to its Nextel network, the Motorola i890. The flip phone can quickly switch from a push-to-talk conversation to a regular voice call. It otherwise gets a 2-megapixel camera with 4X digital zoom, stereo Bluetooth support and an MP3 player controlled by external media keys with haptic feedback.
The handset has support for web browsing, accessing e-mail and a navigation service. There is also a microSD memory card slot for adding storage. Talk time between charges is rated at 3 hours and 24 minutes. Sprint is now selling the i890 for $130 when linked to a two-year contract and $50 mail-in rebate.
