The Motorola Clutch i465 will be available sometime this summer from Sprint for $39.99 with a new two-year service agreement, $20 instant rebate, and $50 mail-in rebate (excluding taxes). This new phone is a rugged model with a candy bar form factor. It’s also the first device to combine Nextel Direct Connect with text messaging and a full QWERTY keyboard.

“Motorola Clutch was designed to give serious texters and talkers multiple ways to get the word out,” said Rick Gadd, vice president, Motorola Mobile Devices. “With a full QWERTY keyboard featuring shortcut keys, IM-style texting and push-to-talk technology which works like a verbal IM, Sprint customers are able to keep in constant contact, no matter how they prefer to communicate.”


The Clutch i465 features push to talk, Group Messaging, GPS, Bluetooth, a 1.8-inch screen with a 128 x 160 resolution, and a VGA photo camera. Group Messaging lets you create groups of up to 20 people to send messages to simultaneously. The Clutch i465 also meets Military Specification 810F for low pressure, high and low temperatures, dust, shock, vibration, and solar radiation. The phone is Java-enabled and supports third-party applications.

Sprint and Nextel offer a variety of plans to suit both business and personal users’ needs. To be notified when the Motorola Clutch i465 will be available, register on Sprint’s website.

I remember when Motorola put out the first flip phone. I had one of course and it went everywhere with me. What happened to Motorola being innovative. This phone may be cool but blackberry has had a full qwerty keyboard for what 5 years now? This may be innovative on sprints part to some degree, but what other reason is this even cool, if I were to go sprint I would go with a pal anyway most likely.
