Thanks for any help!!

Don't think there's going to be anymore iDEN "smart devices" for Sprint Nextel. The 7100i should be available, and probably the last iDEN Blackberry you will see for Sprint Nextel. Sprint Nextel's new PTT technology is Q-Chat.

PTT=Push To Talk (Nextel's iDEN Direct Connect or Boost's Chirp)
Q-Chat=VoIP (Voice over IP) PTT through CDMA EvDO Rev.A networks (Sprint's Direct Connect)

Most likely there's going to be a Blackberry Q-Chat PTT enabled phone in 3rd or 4th quarter.

Just incase you didn't know CDMA is what Sprint's network runs off or, and iDEN is Nextel's network. EvDO is the 3rd generation data technology on Sprint's network.

Hopefully this helps.

"LPK9Services" is yanking everyone's chain.

Anyone who wants to know when Nextel will have a new smartphone and who doesn't know what PTT is, or what 3rd or 4th quarter means, is just yanking the chains of anyone who will reply to his/her post.

Are you LPK9Services or know of he or she? And how would you know that he or she doesn't know, have you seen he or she's previous posts? Confused

I'm certainly not LPK9Services, don't know them either (do you?). I can just read between the lines, and his/her posts in that thread all smell fishy. Re-read the entire thread from the start and let us know how sincere you really think LPK9Services is (at least in this thread).

I stand by my opinion that anyone who is eagerly asking when a new Nextel smartphone will be out, yet has no clue what PTT & Qchat are, is not a serious poster. There have been many posters here who are just pulling legs and making lame/ridiculous posts just for their own entertainment, to see what reactions they ...

The BlackBerry Curve will hit iDEN carriers at some point in late 2008 or early 2009

This is huge. I personally prefer iDEN over QChat (at the time)for PTT. Thanks for the link. Guess will find out in the near future.

There will be a Sanyo smartphone coming out soemtime soon I think. They presented it to Sprint but sprint pushed it aside to promote the Instict for a longer period of time. The Sanyo PDA phone is touchscreen with a slide out keyboard and the Direct Connect feature

I hope it's better than Sanyo's current offerings. The buzz around the net is that the QChat feature freezes up badly.
