At CTIA, the Motorola i1 was unveiled at an event with Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs. It's a phone designed to take hard knocks, but to also offer the Google Android OS. The cell phone is finally coming to Nextel on July 25th. It will run the Android 1.5 OS and will be loaded with apps for the workforce such as Xora, a mobile workforce management solution that offers businesses with real-time visibility into field operations, and helps automate payroll and job workflow processes, and TeleNavTrack that lets
businesses use wireless barcode scanning to track inventory and assets, manage deliveries, better predict arrival times, change schedules on-the-fly and deploy workers. Of course, since it's a Nextel phone, it will support Push-To-Talk.
