After years of drab, boring handsets, the good looking devices coming to the iDEN side are a treat, to say the least. Right off the heels of the Motorola Stature i9, Engadget Mobile has obtained pictures of the Motorola i856, a device sporting the sliding form factor. Details are incredibly sparse at the moment, but it has been confirmed to have a 2.2-inch display screen, Bluetooth, microSD card slot and a 1.3 megapixel camera. Music junkies will love the phone, as it sports a quick access button to the player, along with volume controls.
Motorola may be in the midst of restructuring their team, but leaks such as these show that they're actively working on new devices! And though I love the i9 and the recently launched Curve 8350i, the iDEN side could use a few more new models.
