Conclusion: As Sprint's first push-to-talk smartphone, the Motorola Admiral carves out its own niche. Still, as Colon points out, "Sprint has other keyboarded smartphones… that have larger screens and faster data speeds," such as the Samsung Epic 4G and HTC's EVO Shift 4G.
Pros: Great keyboard, Very durable, Push-to-talk service, Excellent battery life, Can use as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, Good call quality
Cons: Weak camera, Small screen, No 4G access, MicroSD card under battery
Excerpt: The BlackBerry form factor — candybar style, keyboard underneath display — seems to be on the way out, dead in favor of ever-larger touchscreen displays. I’m sad about that, since I both love phones with physical keyboards and think slide-out keyboards are too large for a lot of users.
Pros: Candybar form factor, Good keyboard, Solid battery life
Summary: The Motorola Admiral was announced late October as the first Android-powered smartphone with Sprint Direct Connect. I had the opportunity to get some hands-on time with the device and want to share with you guys my opinions on this “business ready,” “military grade,” piece of hardware.
