The newly announced Motorola i1 has just received some hands on treatment by our friends over at slashgear. This phone has a few good apps preinstalled. Opera Mini 5 is onboard as well as Swype. Motorola is marketing this as the world’s first Push-to-Talk Android-based handset.
The i1 features MotoBlur, a 3.1” touch screen and Android 1.5 all in a rugged rubber body. I know what you’re thinking, yay!!! another keyboard less Cliq in a rubber case. But this phone is dust resultant, shock proof and water resistant. And hey, it has push to talk(yawn).[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHVMkRuM9SU&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]
