Motorola Admiral Coming Soon as Sprint Direct Connect Device

Sprint will be kicking off their Direct Connect service in an Android fashion with the Motorola Admiral, according to a recently leaked document. We’ve heard the name before, but this is our first look at the handset and its specs. The portrait QWERTY smartphone will feature Android 2.3, a single-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm chipset, and 3.1-inch display. It also gets a 5MP camera, 4GB of internal storage, and an 1860mAh battery, all of which is built into a military-specced case capable of resisting water, dust, shock, pressure and temperature extremes, and pretty much whatever else you can throw at it. Quite admiral-able. Aren’t I punny? The Motorola Admiral should be making its way to Sprint later this fall.

    Ditching the iden network for direct connect will actually make PTT Androids a viable option so this might be cool. If this actually works out (and Sprint doesn’t shoot themselves in the face with it) there’s no reason we couldn’t see high-end phones with direct connect built in.
