Reston, VA & Plantation, FL -- Nextel and Motorola today announced the Motorola i850, a feature-rich camera phone that combines enhanced communication features with a compact, sleek design.
In addition to Nextel's Nationwide Direct Connect and International Direct Connect(SM) services that allow instant coast-to-coast and country-to-country communication at the touch of a button, the Motorola i850 also offers other unique walkie-talkie options. The Group Connect(SM) service enables group walkie-talkie conversations with up to 21 participants nationwide, and the groups can be directly set up on the handset within seconds. The Direct Talk(SM) service allows short-range walkie-talkie communications in areas without network coverage, depending on specific conditions such as terrain. Nextel Direct Send(SM) allows users to send contact information to another Direct Send capable phone within seconds simply by pushing the walkie-talkie button.
The Motorola i850 offers Nextel Multimedia Messaging service, which allows for a high level of expression and personalization by enabling messages to include text, images and audio altogether. The i850 allows these messages to be sent from several locations on the handset eliminating needless extra steps including the Message Center where voicemail and multimedia messages can be managed in one central location. Additionally, the phone's integrated 310K digital camera provides the ability to set lighting, picture quality and picture size. All of this for only $0.25 per sent or received message.
Some of the many other features of the Motorola i850 include pre-installed and downloadable Java applications, GPS capabilities, Internet microbrowser, audible and picture caller ID, a 262K internal color screen, voice dialing, voice recorder, speakerphone, datebook and 600-entry contacts list.
The Motorola i850 is available through all Nextel distribution channels, including retail stores, at a price of $224.99, with a two-year service agreement, new activation and credit approval. Taxes, fees, early termination fee and other charges apply.
