Motorola Debut i856 iDEN cell phone : Motorola introduces the Motorola Debut i856 - the first iDEN push-to-talk slider phone - stays with you through life’s ups and downs, with fast push-to-talk, music and camera features. The Motorola Debut i856 is the first iDEN cell phone to combine the convenience of push-to-talk with the smooth control of a slider. The compact design of the new Motorola cell phone gives easier access to the keypad along with the security of keeping keys protected when not in use. Control your music, take calls, view messages and access the internet, all with the slider closed. The Motorola Debut mobile phone is equipped with a 1.3 megapixel digital camera and can record low resolution videos.|
When you need a fast response, Motorola Debut lets you control the conversation with all your favorite push-to-talk features. Chat with up to 20 friends at once, have short-range conversations outside network areas or instantly send contact info and pictures to family with compatible handsets. With the Debut from Motorola you can even convert push-to-talk conversations into voice calls for a quick and easy change of pace. If you prefer the written word, use IM-style texting to view entire conversations all on one screen. Once your message is ready to go, send it in the background and move on to other applications.
