Motorola Mobility and Nextel Introduce Motorola i867, the Newest Android powered Push To Talk Smartphone

Motorola i867, the newest Android-powered smartphone with Push To Talk for iDEN technology, is now available from Nextel in the Brazilian market. Using Motorola’s iDEN technology, it offers high performance communication, PTT two-way radio, cellular service, mobile Web access, and text and picture messaging in a single device.


The device will keep users connected to their lives when they are on the go. Android 2.1 is one of the main features of the smartphone, which also has integrated GPS capabilities, corporate connectivity and built-in Wi-Fi. “The new i867 smartphone with PTT is the best of both worlds,” said Wagner Mendonça, iDEN sales director for Motorola Mobility Brazil. “Whether you choose the i867 for work, play, or both, the Motorola i867 lets you manage it all with best-in-class PTT and Android.”


The i867 is also packed with features, including Wi-Fi, 3.1” touchscreen display, music player, Bluetooth stereo technology, a 3.5-millimeter stereo headset jack and a 3-megapixel camera. Store images, videos and music on the included 2-gigabyte microSD HC memory card, or replace it with a card of up to 32 GB, sold separately, to hold even more data.


More than 450,000 applications are available for download from Google Play, and with five display screens providing quick access to frequently used items, there’s room to personalize the Motorola i867 with widgets and shortcuts. The device also provides direct access to relationship networks and Google services, such as Google Search, Gtalk, Google Maps and Navegador GPS.


The Motorola i867 comes with the Nextel Email mail application that enables users to connect to their email accounts and exchange messages in real time, with the capacity to configure up to 10 personal accounts and 1 business account and a corporate agenda. The handset has a SWYPE keyboard to facilitate text entry and dual microphones with noise cancellation technology to help make conversations clearer in noisy environments.

The new handset is a versatile tool that meets the needs of today’s demanding, connected consumer who is not prepared to sacrifice design. It combines Android smartphone technology with Nextel’s suite of push-to-talk services,” says Fernando Modé, marketing manager, Nextel
