Motorola i1

Last updated: Jul 19th, 2013.

Announced at the end of March 2010, the Motorola i1 iDen AKA Opus one is the world’s first PTT (Push-To-Talk) Android Phone and the first Android-powered phone to have Opera Mobile 5 pre-installed & is tough........ Military standard tough!

The Motorola i1 is a pretty standard phone spec wise (besides the unique PTT) including a 3.1" inch touchscreen, 5 MP camera with geo-tagging and single LED flash, Wi-fi, bluetooth and A-GPS. One downside of this newly released phone is that it comes pre-installed with Android version 1.5 (Cupcake), however it is possible this will get updated to a modern version in the future - Lets hope so!

Another great thing about this handset is the fact Opera 5 mini - a powerful , fast web browser comes pre-installed allowing users to have a great browsing experience. The Motorola i1 also has some good looks with the design of the hardware buttons and the black chrome edging.

Did we mention this is military tough? It can withstand blowing rain, dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, low pressure, salt fog, humidity and solar radiation. Now thats what I call a tough cookie!
