Motorola shows i886 phone with Direct Connect

Motorola has just announced the first phone that combines a sliding QWERTY keyboard form factor, support for Nextel Direct Connect push-to-talk and a rugged construction. The i886 meets the US military's 810G spec and is thus resilient to dust, shock, vibration, temperature and pressure extremes. Other features include a two-megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, MP3 playback, group messaging and GPS navigation.

A 1,380mAh battery is said to provide a modest four hours of talk time for the handset. The i886 costs $80 on a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate. It ships with a 2GB card but can take up to 32GB microSD cards.
