Sprint spokesperson Scott Sloat has confirmed that Sprint Nextel will cease to offer push-to-talk phones based on Qualcomm's QChat technology. QChat was introduced in 2008 as an EVDO Rev. A-based alternative to Nextel's iDEN technology for PTT services. Sprint sold several models that were enabled with QChat, but will no longer offer them. Sprint Nextel's iDEN network technology has recently improved, said Sloat, and Sprint will market its PTT services for iDEN only.
