Sprint's steampunk Motorola i776 now in the mix for push-to-talkin' fun

Chris Ziegler

Motorola's iDEN-powered i776 flip is now available through Sprint's website, capping off a round of high-visibility launches with a black sheep in every sense of the word. Well, every sense except one -- the i776 is actually a bizarre combo of brushed metal and brown, an acquired taste to say the least (not unlike the network on which the i776 runs). There's nothing but a VGA cam here, but it packs GPS, Bluetooth, speakerphone, and that retro-fabulous stub antenna that'll make all your friends wonder why they've been unceremoniously obsoleted on virtually every other phone sold today. Get it now -- if you dare -- for $79.99 on contract.
