The Motorola i686, aka the Brute, is a tough clamshell that is built to military specifications, which means it meets military standards for shock, dust, vibration, extreme temperatures, humidity and other environmental challenges. The phone's exterior is designed for an easy, solid grip.

The Motorola i686 offers two displays: the external display measures 1.3 inches and provides time, date, battery and signal strength information, and the internal, 2.2-inch display offers 176 x 220 pixel resolution.
