Motorola i870 Camera and MP3 Music Phone

Motorola's i870 is an advanced technology cell phone that works on the Nextel wireless network. That means you get all the advantages of PTT (Push to Talk) walkie-talkie type communications as well as regular cellular phone service. But, oh, this phone goes way beyond the usual PTT functionality.

First off, the digital camera in the i870 is rated at 1.3 Megapixels for 1280 x 1024 pixel resolution. This gives you great shots for photo messaging and great prints of your favorites as well. An LED flash is included for low light situations. The camera can also be used in camcorder mode for video capture limited only by the amount of available memory in the camera. A 32 Mb TransFlash card is included.

Your pix will look great on the giant 2.2 inch color main display. It's capable of displaying over 262,000 colors. There is also an external display that shows valuable information without opening the phone. It's in color, too.

How about some audio to complement the video capability. OK. The Motorola i870 has a built-in stereo MP3 music player with cover mounted controls. It's your portable music player, your digital camera and your telephone.

As a cell phone, you can use the i870 hands free with voice dialing. Clip a Bluetooth headset on your ear and have private conversations without holding up the phone and without any dangling cords to get tangled up. Or, turn on the built-in speakerphone for convenience while doing other things or to let colleagues and friends in on the conversation.

Want instant communications? That's the beauty of Nextel Direct Connect service. Push a button and you will be heard instantly by the party you want to reach. No ringing, no voicemail, no busy signals. Just Push To Talk.
