If you are a texting fiend on an iDEN carrier, Motorola has an upcoming phone that will provide relief for your tired T9 typing fingers. Sometime in 2009 Motorola is expected to release the i465, an iDEN handset with a full front facing QWERTY keyboard. The inclusion of a QWERTY keyboard gives the candybar phone a slight bulge at the bottom but the ease of typing presumably outweighs any un-attractiveness this extra girth provides. The i465 runs a plain jane feature phone OS with Bluetooth 2.0 and a VGA camera. The specific release date, specs, pricing and potential carriers are still unknown but Sprint looks to be preparing to make a run with Boost this year so don’t be surprised if the i465 pops up.
