FONE i880 HSDPA W375  

Motorola has been showing off glimpses of a few forthcoming iDEN phones recently. The most exciting is the i880, which will set a new standard as the most feature-packed iDEN phone yet.


Features of this baby include a 2 megapixel camera with video capture, microSD memory card slot, MP3 player with external controls, stereo speakers, and Bluetooth.

The overall feel of the device is excellent, including a thin profile and great keys. I do wish the 4-way keys were joined into a true d-pad; the four separated direction keys aren't the best, although I've seen worse.

MVNO Boost Mobile will get its own version: the i885:


Usually the Boost version of an iDEN phone has a more "wild" design, but in this case it might be the opposite. To me, the i880 has a more crazy, over-the-top design, and the i885 design seems slightly more conservative. They're both unique, though, and both a bit "sci-fi" looking.

Look for the i880 to hit shelves around the end of October, and the i885 soon after.
