Motorola i856 sliderphone

The latest handset for Motorola's iDEN network, the i856 slider equipped with the signature push-to-talk feature, has been spotted on Wednesday thanks to Engadget. The first slider device compatible to feature push-to-talk functionality from Motorola, the handset's 2.2-inch display is average, as is the rest of the handset's feature-set. It sports a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0 and a microSD expansion card slot, all features common or slightly above that of the handset maker's first QWERTY iDEN handset, the i465.

The i856 is expected to become available at Sprint's Boost Mobile network in the fall, where it will sit just below the flagship i9 flip phone, though pricing is yet to be determined.
