Sprint Nextel drops Motorola Brute on unsuspecting public

brute_closedOh Nextel. The insults continue. First, your service continues to hemorrhage users, and now you get subjected to phones that look like the Motorola Brute. It’s almost enough to make me feel a little sorry for you.

The Brute i680 is an iDEN compatible, Mil-Spec phone, which explains its striking appearance. It’s actually designed to be resistant to dust, shock, vibration, moisture, solar radiation, and pretty much anything else you can think of to throw at it. Unlike most Nextel phones, it’s also got a few newer features like Bluetooth, and aGPS. If you want one, you can get it now from Sprint for $119.99 on contract.
