Moto i290 Leak

Motorola is close to releasing its first true slim phone for mainstream iDEN networks, says one report with photos leaked from Motorola. Though the i425 is already in service for Boost Mobile, the new i290 will bring the push-to-talk functions to larger carriers while keeping a slim look closer to the SLVR and other thinner Motorola designer phones. No camera will be included, but music support is possible through evidence of a mini-USB connector for sideloading data and a 2.5mm headphone jack.

Also said to have been revealed are likely carriers. Though not visible in public shots, the i290 is reportedly certain to arrive for Canadian provider Telus' Mike service. This makes it a likely choice for Sprint, the tip says, as the American company still operates the iDEN network it inherited from acquiring Nextel. Motorola has yet to post any more definitive launch information but has essentially completed the candybar device and will release it soon. [via Phone Arena]
