Sprint will soon take its turn at selling the first Nextel-compatible smartphone with the Android, the Motorola i1. Arriving at Sprint's online store on July 25, the push-to-talk phone is rugged thanks to its solid construction and can withstand dust, shock, vibration and blowing rain. It comes preloaded with Android 1.5 and can sync e-mails, office documents and personal info.

The handset otherwise offers a 5-megapixel camera with geotagging and Wi-Fi. It has the ability to scan documents to PDF thanks to a preloaded app, a unit converter, and Motorola's Facebook and Twitter apps. Users steer the phone through 3.1-inch, 480x320 touchscreen. Swype's virtual keyboard is preloaded onto the device as well.

The i1 will cost $150 with a new two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate online. It will reach Sprint stores on August 8.
