Review: Motorola i870
While the i870 suffers from some interface quirks, it is tough to hold them against this phone since they are common to all iDen handsets. And in fact, the i870 does improve upon the experience offered by previous models in some ways. New features such as Bluetooth and mp3 playback have been implemented well, and are easy to use. While this certainly will make for a pleasant - even fun - iDen experience, it does not make for a pleasant experience when compared to phones with similar features on other carriers. It is unlikely even a feature-rich model like the i870 will attract new iDen customers, but it will probably make some current Nextel subscribers very happy.
