Sprint gets rugged and releases two new Motorola phones

We snagged a picture of Sprint’s Motorola V950 from our leaked roadmap, but now you can see it for yourself as Sprint launched their ruggedized Push To Talk flip phone. The Motorola Renegade V950 is a Qchat-enabled phone so you CDMA and iDEN PTT people can talk nice together. The V950 packs a lot of multimedia features not seen in the usually plain and boring push to talk phones. It sports the following features:

  • NFL Mobile Live
  • Sprint Music Store
  • Sprint TV
  • GPS
  • Web, email capable
  • Built-in 2MP camera with video recording
  • Bluetooth (with A2DP)
  • Rev. A Broadband speeds

It is also military rated for dust, shock, vibration, blowing rain and humidity. So if you want to throw out the window because your girlfriend just dumped you, feel free to do so. It’s available for $129 after a $50 MIR and with a 2 year agreement. Click through for Sprint’s next ruggedized offering.

Onto the plain and boring Push To Talk phone… Not as nearly innovative as its V950 cousin, the iDEN only Motorola i365 is another rugged phone built to military standards. It offers GPS, web, email, SMS/MMS, and Bluetooth in a candy bar design. It’s not a bad choice for someone who may prefer a featureless, rugged, candy bar style phone with outdated PTT technology. Any takers? It is available for $89.99 with a 2 year agreement.
