    Looks like this will be a good phone for people like contractors who need to be in rough job sites. I hope we hear good feedback on the PTT feature. Android 1.5 though

    Nice, I see a comeback for Nextel. I'm pretty sure it will be upgraded to 2.1 or whatever the latest will be eventually.

    I agree Sam. Why are these great devices being released with older versions of Android? Manufacturers are putting so much time and energy into developing high end and feature packed devices, but slacking on the OS. Makes no sense to me.

    If I'm not mistaking it has to do with OS Branding. I may be a little off on that but in order to add certain features in the OS the carrier is forced to use older builds and also with the newer versions the specs are not such the device will work.

    PTT is a great feature. I loved it when I used to use it. It's so handy and quick.
