Heads up, Sprint customers: the rugged Motorola Titanium is coming your way on July 24th. The portrait QWERTY-packin' Android 2.1 smartphone will be available this Sunday for $149.99 with a two-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate, just like a previously-leaked document showed it would. Specs for the Titanium include a 3.1-inch 480x320 touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, Nextel Direct Connect Push to Talk support, a full QWERTY keyboard, 2GB microSD card preinstalled, 1820mAh battery, and Android 2.1. Oh, and we can't forget the fact that it's built to Military Specification 810G, meaning it can resist dust, shock, vibration, low pressure, solar radiation, and both high and low temperatures.
The Titanium may not be the highest-specced Android phone on the market, but the i1 successor should do nicely for anyone that needs some PTT love in their life. You can peep the full press release down below.
