If you thought your days of chirpin’ “Where you at?” to your friends and family were well behind you, it looks like Sprint is planning a revival of the service in an upcoming Android app. Apparently, the app will debut as Sprint DirectConnect Now on the Samsung Transform Ultra and give the device walkie-talkie capabilities without the need for iDEN compatible hardware.

Get ready to once again embarrass your friends/family at inopportune times with the press of a button. Anyone out there actually miss push-to-talk on their phone? In case you missed out on the whole push-to-talk craze, here’s a video from back in the day showing you what it was all about.
