Nextel launches first Motorola i605 rugged Bluetooth mobile phone
Nextel Communications Inc. and Motorola Inc. are introducing the Motorola i605, the first rugged Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone in the market.

The Motorola i605 is designed for users in industries such as field services, construction, transportation and government segments. Its rubberized monolith design meets military specifications for resistance to dust, shock and vibration.

It comes with 32MB of flash memory of which 6MB are free for downloading Java based business solutions, and its GPS capability enables location-based services, including fleet tracking and turn-by-turn directions. The battery life delivers approximately 240 minutes of talk time and 290 hours of standby.

The Motorola i605 also offers Nextel Multimedia Messaging service (MMS), which allows users to send and receive messages that include text, images and audio together.

The integrated Bluetooth technology enables the wireless exchange of information between devices within a range of 10 meters (30 feet), eliminating the need for wire connections between, for example, the phone and a compatible Bluetooth enabled hands-free headset. The Bluetooth wireless technology also eliminates the need for a data cable to connect the phone to a compatible Bluetooth-enabled laptop using the phone's wireless modem functionality. The i605 supports both Bluetooth headset and handset profiles.

The Nextel Group Connect service allows up to 21 participants on a group walkie-talkie call. Participants can be located virtually anywhere within Nextel's nationwide network, and their status can be viewed on a screen on their phones, including if they are active, opted out or unavailable. Group Connect service allows users to create groups directly on the phone and instantly begin a conversation, without prior setup.

The handset's screen measures 2.2" diagonal and offers a rich 262,000-color resolution with high contrast for easy daylight viewing. The phone also offers voice recording, voice-activated dialing, and an airplane mode that allows applications to be run while the radio is off.
