Phone Scoop Review

Motorola's latest iDEN device for Sprint Nextel brings Android, push-to-talk, and a physical QWERTY keyboard to the table. Together, they make for a fine Android phone, though it's not without a few hiccups. read review ›

Not quite the update I thought it would be
I had a i1, and yes I was ok with it. After realizing they left owner of the i1 high and dry with no updates I went to T-mobile and got a HTC Mytouch 4g. With that said when I heard about this phone I got a little excited because of the updated os. I found one and played with it. I now realize it is a i1 with a keyboard. The phone is slow and unresponsive. Yeah you can have live wallpaper and all the trimming. But as with all iDEN phones data is PAINFULLY SLOW! To me having android on a 2g phone is like having a engine from a Yugo in a Lamborgini. If you dont care for data speeds or if your employer makes you use it I guess you can do worse. But if you are not part of those groups I suggest going with a 3g or 4g network. Only pro I found was how durable and rugged this phone is.
