Motorola bringing QWERTY to its walkie-talkie phones with the i465


Looks like Motorola will be pairing a keyboard with push-to-talk in the i465, due sometime this year. The immediacy of text messaging is great, yes, overshadowed only by the immediacy of instantly speaking to someone using a nationwide walkie-talkie, so this handset ought to cover all the need-to-talk-ASAP bases.

The phone’s OS isn’t anything fancy but let’s assume Moto’s concentrating more on function than form. There’s not too much other information about the device other than it’ll have Bluetooth and a VGA camera. Pricing, availability, and carrier(s) aren’t yet known.
