The Motorola i867 Android Smartphone
Motorola unveiled a new Android smartphone called the i867 with PTT (Push To Talk) capability. By today’s standard, the Motorola i867 packs modest, if not mediocre features such as 3.1” touchscreen display, 3Mp rear facing camera, Bluetooth stereo, 3.5mm stereo headset jack, music player and Wi-Fi. To store multimedia files, the phone comes with an external 2GB MicroSD card, while up to 32GB card can be purchased separately if users need to store more data. The phone offers integrated GPS capabilities, but unfortunately it still uses the woefully outdated Android 2.1 (Éclair) OS. Despite its shortcomings, the Motorola i867 should be perfectly suitable for any on-the-go professional, who doesn’t need that latest software and hardware configuration.
The simple, but durable Android handset can have a direct access to 400,000 apps in the Google Play (previously Android Market), while its five screens provide quick access to important apps and services. Just like with any Android smartphone, users can personalize the interface with shortcuts and widgets. However, considering the sub-par hardware and outdated OS, the i867 supports only older or less-demanding apps.
Professionals can access POP3 mail accounts and Microsoft Exchange, so they can connect to both business and personal email accounts. It includes the Nextel Email app, which allows users to multiple email accounts and exchange information in real time. The app supports up to 1 business account and 10 personal accounts.
Another significant appeal of the Motorola i867 is its durability; the phone complies with the 810G Military Specification for exceptional resistance to solar radiation, low air pressure, temperature extremes, vibration and shock.
