Buy an I9 if you are a white collar worker but if you work hard buy a phone that can take a beating.

I think it looks really nice for the newest rugged phones out there! I'm going to be buying it for my Boost Mobile unlimited service as soon as I get my tax rebate back!

I love it! Laughing Cool Very Happy

For anything that is designed for rough service, it is always better when form follows function, not style.

The owner of a Ferrari or a Corvette or a BMW might feel that a front-loader or a farm tractor or a grain harvester or an 18-wheeler, or even a Chevy Malibu or a Honda Civic or a Toyota Corrola are "ugly". Of course such a person is entitled to his/her own opinion. But such an opinion would indicate that they are living in a narrow world, peering through a very narrow viewport that is shaped only by luxury and style, not real-world practicalities and physics.

Anyone familiar with product design and development recognizes that even the Motorola i680 "Brute" phone has a lot of styling put into it, just not high-end glitzy styling. ...

Give me a break. The i680 is a fragile, poorly designed piece of junk.

No it isn't the prettiest iDEN Phone out there. It isn't meant to be. If you want a Pretty iDEN phone you can go with the i9, i890 or the soon to be released i1. Or better yet go to a carrier that has phones that are meant to be glitsy or (in the lexicon of today)Blingy.

I i680 is a tough, durable, waterproof phone meant for people who are hard on phones or work in a job that can kill anything else. Yes it has a Camera, it can play music, record video, has a GPS, a nice interface (for iDEN phones that is), has a external color screen, has a MicroSD slot, has a fast processor and gaggles of memory (for a iDEN phone)....
