View who is calling no matter which application you're in

Motorola have recently announced, their new i1 will be the first mobile phone with Google's Android operating system, on a push-to-talk (i.e., no contract required) device. This could be a move which encourages mobile phone users to sell their handsets and put the cash towards upgrading to Motorola’s latest device.

The announcement came at the CTIA Wireless convention in Las Vegas, the annual mobile show that is organized by the mobile phone industry trade group.

The Motorola i1 will feature features a 3.1-inch touchscreen and Wi-Fi, as well as the chance to download applications. It also features a five-megapixel camera, which has a panoramic function and geo-tagging and businessmen could be interested to note the phone includes Microsoft Document Viewer, which means Word or Powerpoint files can be viewed when consumers are out and about.

The handset will also allow users to view who is calling no matter which application they are in or whether they are checking emails.

Mark Shockley, senior vice-president of Motorola Mobile Devices, said: “iDEN customers can use the handset for work or play”, he went on to highlight the company's commitment to "delivering differentiated Android experiences" within its product portfolio.

If you want one of the new Motorola i1 Google Android smartphones, they will be available shortly for $200 (£133) from Sprint with a mobile phone contract. Consumers who are a little short on cash could consider trading in their old phones to raise a little money to go towards the i1.
