In addition to Nextel’s Nationwide Direct Connect and International Direct Connect services that allow instant coast-to-coast and country-to-country communication at the touch of a button, the Motorola i275 also offers other exclusive walkie-talkie options. The new Group Connect service enables group walkie-talkie conversations with up to 21 participants nationwide, and the groups can be directly set up on the handset within seconds. The Direct Talk service allows walkie-talkie communications in areas without network coverage for up to six miles depending on specific conditions, such as terrain. Nextel Direct Send allows users to send contact information to another phone within seconds simply by pushing the walkie-talkie button.
Nextel’s multimedia messaging service allows users to send and receive messages with text, images and audio altogether. Additionally, the phone’s integrated 310K digital camera allows users to set lighting, picture quality and picture size.
“Just because a phone is jam packed with many different functions doesn’t mean that it has to be dull and strictly utilitarian,” said Blair Kutrow, Nextel’s vice president of Product Management. “The i275 has a flare for style, with several features that add character to how our customers can communicate.”
“The Motorola i275 combines many advanced features, including a camera, color screen, and multiple communication modes, all in one handset, making it an excellent choice for a wide range of users,” said Rey More’, senior vice president and general manager, Motorola’s iDEN Devices.
Additional features of the Motorola i275 handset include:
• Voice recorder. This feature allows the user to capture memos or incoming
phone conversations for future playback.
The Motorola i275 measures 4.79 x 1.94 x 1.04 inches and weighs 4.64 ounces with the high performance battery. It is available in two different colors, black and white, and can be purchased through all Nextel distribution channels, including retail stores. The Motorola i275 handset costs $124.99 with a two-year service agreement, new activation and credit approval. Taxes, fees, early termination fee and other charges apply.
