Nextel today launched the ic502, the company's first phone to merge iDEN and CDMA networks. The ic502 is a ruggedized clamshell with an external antenna. The ic502 features an external 2-line monochrome display and an internal color screen as well as speakerphone. It's most noteworthy feature is one that cannot be seen. The ic502 uses the iDEN network for walkie talkie functions and the CDMA network for voice calls and data, although data is limited to 1xRTT. However 1xRTT data is faster the WiDEN's maximum data speeds. The ic502 will initially be available through Nextel in limited markets including Boston, Miami, New York City, San Diego, Washington DC and additional smaller metro areas.
