Moto Renegade at Sprint

Sprint today bolstered its push-to-talk lineup with the Moto V950 Renegade. The flip-phone is hardened to US military-grade specifications for resistance to dust, water and shocks but is as thin as many of Motorola's thinner cellphones and supports the Nextel push-to-talk network through QChat, which uses the phone's faster EVDO Revision A Internet access for its instant-on calls. The device is also a true media phone with a two-megapixel camera, media player software, and access to Sprint's streaming media add-ons.

The Renegade is available immediately from Sprint and sells for $130 with the combination of a two-year plan and a rebate.

Also on tap is the Motorola i365, a much more conventional Nextel phone using the iDEN network. It more closely resembles the walkie talkie form factor, complete with stub antenna, and drops the camera in favor of GPS, a high-volume speakerphone for field workers and support for two phone lines on one handset. The feature mix reduces the price to $90 on contract and will see the i365 ship today.
