CTIA 2010. Motorola
One major announcement from Motorola at this show was i1, the first iDEN Android handset. Besides Push-To-Talk (PTT) the phone is dust, shock and moisture protected, exactly what is needed by construction workers and many other professional users of iDEN networks worldwide. i1 runs Android 1.6, the company simply had no time to develop the PTT for the newer Android versions. Of course, future update is promised.
While I was taking pictures if i1 openly displayed at Motorola booth at the show, a Motorola employee informed me that taking pictures is not allowed – that simply put me in a state of shock. My question how can a company officially announce the phone, do the press release, display the phone openly at the major international show and prohibit taking pictures of it were left unanswered for obvious reasons – there is no explanation or an excuse for such a stupidity. The Motorola PR person was informed via email that Mobile-Review wants to take pictures, but, I guess, she was too busy with something to respond. Overall, it looks like the journalists are nothing but a bother to the happy life of Motorola PR service, this is not the only case of emails and calls left unanswered, something that is just unimaginable with any other company. Consider this an official complaint Motorola.
Other than i1 the company showed already known devices: Backflip, CLIQ, CLIQ XT, Devour (running Android 1.6, but with Google Navigation from 2.0 and Adobe Flash support) and Droid. Interestingly enough not a single non-Android device was to be found anywhere.
Also displayed were a few accessories: Bluetooth headsets H17 (the smallest and lightest flip headset), Endeavor HX1 using bone conduction technology, H720, stereo S305 and sunvisor installed car kit T325, which turns itself On and Off when your phone is within or outside of the range and computes 25 of your favorite numbers for prioritization.
