Titanium confirmed at Sprint on July 24 for $150
Wireless provider Sprint has now confirmed it will indeed begin selling the rugged Motorola Titanium handset on July 24, as reported earlier. The phone, a rebadged version of the Droid Pro, will cost $150 on a two-year contract, but after a $100 mail-in rebate. It meets military-spec 810G standards for ruggedness and has push-to-talk iDEN network support, becoming the first Android 2.1-powered handset to do so in the process.
The device otherwise uses a hardware QWERTY keyboard and a 3.1-inch screen. A 2GB microSD memory card will be bundled with the phone. The five-megapixel camera can capture 720p HD videos as well as still images. There is also Wi-Fi, stereo Bluetooth, and GPS navigation onboard.
