For those of you who are not too interested in getting advanced smartphones and would rather get a simply phone with some special tough and connectivity features, Motorola and Sprint have something for you. Just announced is the Motorola Brute i686 flip phone. Two key features that make this flip phone interesting – toughness and Nextel Direct Connect.
Featuring Nextel Direct Connect features such as push-to-talk capabilities and support for business apps, the Motorola Brute i686 has met the Military Specifications 810G for dust, shock, vibration, low temperature, high temperature, low pressure, solar radiation, salt fog, humidity, blowing raing and immersion 1. In short, you’ll not only get a feature-rich phone but a tough-as-a-steel handset as well.
Alright, if those ruggedized features are not enough to convince you that this flip phone is highly durable, what if we tell you that it can also withstand up 1 meter submersion in water for up to 30 minutes? It also has rubberized housing with a non-slip grip.
Features and specs of the Motorola Brute i686 include a 2MP camera with flash, SMS and MMS messaging, large internal and external display, GPS, Bluetooth and the ability to switch from an active push-to-talk call to an interconnect voice call.
The Motorola Brute i686 is now available with Nextel Direct Connect from Sprint for $119.99.
