Sprint Nextel to offer dual-mode CDMA/iDEN handsets next year

Sprint Nextel Logo

One of the more interesting items on the Sprint Nextel merger timeline is their plan to start offering some dual-mode CDMA/iDEN handsets as early as next year. There's a plan to offer a handset that uses CDMA for voice and data but has integrated iDEN so you can still use Push-To-Talk with all those rapidly obsolescing iDEN phones your co-workers are still carrying around by late 2007/early 2008. Another merger "bonus": expect Nextel phones and service to start showing up at Sprint stores starting next month.
