Sprint Releases Military Spec Motorola i886

Without any fanfare whatsoever Sprint has added to its Android lineup with the 810G military-specced Motorola i886. The water/temperature/dust/shock/accidentpronesmartphoneuser resistant handset isn’t high-powered on the hardware side, but it does feature an interesting dual-keyboard design. One slides out, while the other is a standard numerical dialpad located below the screen.

The phone features Nextel Direct Connect and is $79.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.

    What version of Android is it using?

  • Juan

    The only evidence as to this phone having Android, is in the spec sheet on the Latin American Motorola site, where it says that it’s using Android’s music player: http://www.motorola.com/Consumers/XA-ES/Consumer-Products-and-Services/Mobile-Phones/ci.i886-XA-ES.alt

    @Juan, we also have the picture above that clearly has an Android task bar and Android buttons (Home and Back are clearly visible).

    I sure hope Samsung eventually releases a military spec Galaxy S line. I left my Casio GzOne Boulder for the Fascinate and I can honestly say, that Casio went through hell and back and still works great to this day. It’s completely shock proof, waterproof, snow proof, drop off a roof proof, all of which I did the two years I used it. I think there’s a great market for phones like these, especially with how fragile and sensitive today’s smartphones are. I went with the Galaxy S because of the gorilla glass and I can honestly say I haven’t been dissapointed. 3 months in and there’s no a single scratch on the screen and I don’t use a screen protector. The phone above looks too much like a Blackberry, so hopefully by the time my contract is up with my Fascinate, they’ll have something a little more sturdy and a lot better looking than the Motorola i886.
