ic502 on Sprint, Nextel

Sprint is now selling Motorola's ic502. Though mostly a standard walkie-talkie phone, the product has the unique advantage of supporting both iDEN and CDMA frequencies, allowing it to function on Sprint, Nextel, and even Verizon networks. The walkie-talkie mode can also be used off-network within a specific range. Sprint further touts the phone's toughness, noting that it complies with the US military's 810F standard for resistance to dust, shock, and other environmental factors. The ic502 is selling for $50 after rebate and a two-year contract.
