, and Sprint (well, Direct Connect anyway
) have all gotten their fair shares of ruggedized Motorola love, but what about the regionals like MetroPCS
? The answer to that might very well lie in the Quantico flip that was announced today, bearing support for 1700MHz CDMA in addition to 800 / 1900 with EV-DO. Besides mil-spec 810F compliance for resistance to environmental evils like water dunks, heat, and dust, the Quantico offers up a 1.3 megapixel camera (a little meager, if you ask us), stereo Bluetooth, and microSD expansion. Moto's putting nearly all of its weight behind Android right now, but alas, no Android here -- speaking of, whatever happened to the non-touch version of the platform
? Anyhow, look for the phone to hit markets in this quarter; carrier partners have yet to be announced.
Turns out US Cellular is already selling
the Quantico despite Motorola's vague statement on availability. Thanks, everyone!
