Motorola i9 spotted at FCC

An FCC filing spotted on Wednesday reveals a new Motorola flip phone is coming to wireless provider Sprint-Nextel. The handset, which may also possibly launch under the Cabo name, will operate on iDEN and CDMA networks from Sprint. It features a 3.1-megapixel camera with autofocus and 8X digital zoom, a useful update over other iDEN handsets' 1.3-megapixel shooters.

The handset will also have an integrated MP3 player, with controls similar to the ROKR E8 that change depending on which mode the phone is in. The MOTOtalk push-to-talk capabilities are also accounted for, as revealed by the diagrams and a dedicated button for the function. Navigation capabilities will likely be available thanks to assisted GPS via a service from Sprint. The handset will also include a wireless Stereo Bluetooth connection and have support for MMS and SMS messaging.

No prices or release dates are known at this time. [via CellPhonesignal]
