I’m not a Motorola fanatic; I’m more of a Nokia and Sony Ericsson aficionado. Well, when it comes to mobile phones, we have different preferences. Yet, I am fairly sure that most people, including me, would take a peek at Motorola’s i465 because it’s their first full-QWERTY iDEN phone. Yes, iDEN handsets are normally not worth looking at. But, that doesn’t mean that companies dealing with such phones won’t release new models. Motorola is an old hand at the iDEN market and their latest effort, the i465 has just made its way to the FCC for approval – which incidentally has met success.
That’s the first full QWERTY iDEN phone from Motorola. I am not going to elaborate on its looks as you can pass judgment on it based on the picture. But I must say it won’t get any awards when it comes to beauty, though the full QWERTY keyboard will make for some nice text messaging and email functionality. Feature wise, the phone is said to have Bluetooth 2.0, a photo camera, and web browser with a dedicated key, plus of course, Push to Talk capabilities. Now, if functionality matters to you in spite of appearance, this phone will be on the Nextel iDEN network sometime soon so watch out for it.
