The Motorola i605 is a candy bar phone that has the look of a walkie talkie. It’s Motorola’s first iDEN device, is well built, offers a speakerphone, voice dialing, GPS, Java capabilities and more.
This phone pays homage to the still vast buying market of pragmatic customers looking for call quality, simplicity and durability. On these metrics the i605 does just fine. Offering up to 4.8 hours of talk time and up to 240 hours of standby time, Bluetooth, USB, customization options for both graphics and ringtones, even data tethering capability, the Motorola i605 makes a stronger effort in this cell phone tier point than many others to provide a solid value.
Now, the iDEN technology has become synonymous with Push-to –Talk, so it doesn’t just look like a walkie talkie, it acts like one, too. You can push a single button and connect with others, making this a great choice for contractors and others who work in groups and need to say connected.
Motorola has produced an excellent device targeted for people who need reliability, good call quality and only those features which sync with their lifestyles. Not too much more, but certainly nothing less.
