Sprint has Motorola r765IS

Wireless provider Sprint announced on Friday that it has added the Motorola r765IS rugged handset to its lineup. The iDEN push-to-talk device is MIL Spec 810F rated, making it heavily resistant to submersion in water as well as exposure to dust, shock, solar radiation and temperature extremes. NextMail compatibility allows it to send voicemail as e-mail attachments, and it has built-in navigation capabilities thanks to integrated GPS. Emergency calling modes ensure callers can get through from nearly anywhere and at any time.

Meant for use by industrial, chemical and utility companies, the r765IS doesn't emit enough energy to ignite fuel vapors or other flammable gases in such environments. Users can add a second line with a different area code that could also be billed separately, and there is a built-in speakerphone. Bluetooth compatibility allows users to transfer data from a computer or hook up compatible headsets.

Talk time is rated at up to 4 hours and 20 minutes, while standby is set at as much as 140 hours. Sprint prices the r765IS at just under $2,000.
