SouthernLINC joins Android bandwagon; starts shipping Motorola I1
SouthernLINC went ahead of the Sprint and made available Motorola’s first Android push to talk phone I1. The device was first unveiled at the recent CTIA event in Las Vegas, at which time both SouthernLINC Wireless and Sprint said they would launch the device. While Sprint customers are still waiting for the device.
Regional operator SouthernLINC is already shipping the device for $200 after all rebates and a two-year contract, or $275 with a one-year contract.
I1 comes with a 3.1-inch touch-screen and includes support for the carriers’ iDEN-based push-to-talk service. In addition, the device includes an integrated Wi-Fi radio and a 5-megapixel camera.
