Are you looking for a budget Android smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard, Direct Connect capabilities, and that is rugged enough to withstand your busy lifestyle? The Motorola Titanium was built just for you. This may not be a power-house smartphone, but it has great features.
The Motorola Titanium is the definition of a low-end smartphone. It ships with a 504 MHz processor, Android 2.1, and uses Nextel's somewhat outdated iDEN network which means that data speeds are going to be pretty slow. However, if you're willing to sacrifice speed for quick connections to your workmates or family members, then the Titanium should do the job.
