We've been slipped some additional information on Motorola's imminent Android-powered i1
for iDEN networks today -- actually, one correction and one interesting note. First, the correction: we're now being told (by the same tipster as before
) that it's actually got a 5 megapixel camera on board, a nice upgrade from the 3 we'd previously been told to expect. More interestingly, though, we're also hearing that Opera Mini
has been tapped as the i1's default browser -- a move that Moto is more than welcome to make since this is a Blur
-powered, non-"Google Experience" device. It's also a possible admission that third-party Android browsers are currently outperforming Google's own, something Microsoft has long dealt with on Windows Mobile as companies like HTC ultimately ended up bundling Opera Mobile with virtually every model they sold. So, Sprint Direct Connect and Boost Mobile customers, you getting excited about this thing or what?
