Many people don’t realize that Sprint still runs the Nextel iDEN network that it acquired when Sprint and Nextel merged in 2006. Nextel has long had a dedicated following that appreciates the network’s fast and clear push-to-talk technology. Using Nextel’s iDEN network, push-to-talk (called “DirectConnect” by Sprint) lets you talk to one or more people the same way you would with a walkie-talkie, and you can do it anywhere in the world where there is Nextel coverage. A shipping dispatcher can quickly have a group conversation with truck drivers across the country and into Mexico and Canada, for example.
Sprint continues to release new phones for the iDEN network, including the Motorola Titanium. Not only does the Titanium run Android 2.1, it is a ruggedized phone that can withstand rough treatment in the field. With a built-in QWERTY keyboard and a 3.1-inch touchscreen display, the Titanium brings capable Android smartphone operation to iDEN customers.
