CTIA 2010: Android push-to-talk Motorola i1 release

CTIA Wireless 2010 is now under full steam and the initial piece of major news is the announcement of a spanking new Android handset from Motorola. It should be available sometime in the summer and will be called the i1.

The carrier will be Sprint and their lucky customers are having a wild time with all the new handsets being offered recently with the HTC Supersonic also on its way. Going back to the i1 though it will apparently be the first Andoid Push-To-Talk phone in the world.

It will also include a 3.1 inch touch screen, WiFi, Adobe Flash, and a 5 megapixel camera. Add to all this the Opera Mini 5.1 browser and 2GB of removable memory and it all makes a nice package. The only drawback seems to be it comes with Android 1.5 instead of 2.1.

    Seems retarded for someone to announce a Android 1.5 phone when 2.1 has been available.

    Yikes! Why the 1.5 instead of 2.1? cheaper, easier for manufacturer? WHY OH WHY?

    Ok so why can’t they allow us to have flash with 2.1, but 1.6 no problems. Just does not make any since what so ever…… Let’s take three steps backwards and one step foward. I will say this if the wireless carriers let’s the phone makers push out what ever they come up with and don’t get a Handel on things like what happen to Linux there will be too many flavors out there and will confuse the basic users of the androind phone. It just may not make it in the long run, and I don’t want to see that happen what so ever. I like the android os and I love my iPod touch. I just hate seeing a new handset come out ever Q1. It can make someone like myself wish they would have waited and I ended up waiting 3 years and then finally picked the droid moto when it came out and guess what I wish I would have waited until even longer. So please don’t play the I am better than you handset game. Ipohone doesn’t need to do that near as often and look at the accessories that you can get for it. Everything, and if one make of one handset can stay the same size and just do iPhone like upgrades then I am willing to bet that some handset maker could corner the market with the android phones. That us just my nickel worth of info. Thank you very much for reading. Cliff
