Sprint Nextel Gets Motorola i580 Rugged Phone

Congratulations Sprint Nextel customers! You, who eschew the sleek lines of the RAZR or the SLVR, who scoff at the so called "fashion phones", get another addition to your lineup today. And yes, it's ugly!

The Motorola i580 is as rugged as it is bulky, and as pretty as it is aerodynamic. Perfect for construction sites, parents of small children, and angry people who throw their phones, the i580 has a 1.3 megapixel camera with microSD slot and Bluetooth connectivity—not exactly featureless, but not top-of-the-line.

It's available now for $279.99 after discounts.
