Motorola V950 sneak peek
Leaked photos on the Internet show the upcoming Motorola V950 will soon be available on the Sprint EVDO Rev. A high-speed network. The clamshell phone features a rubberized design that should enable it to withstand a fair bit of punishment in addition to making it waterproof. The carrier's recent QChat Push-to-Talk functionality will also be integrated into the handset.
Other V950 features include a 2-megapixel camera with LED flash, a microSD memory expansion slot, and dedicated audio playback controls. Wireless data transfers and wireless headphone use are possible thanks to Bluetooth A2DP support, and Sprint Navigation GPS service can be called upon to get users where they want to go.
The V950 is expected to be exclusively offered by Sprint, although prices and release dates are not known. [via MobileBurn]
