Cricket Wireless News – Motorola i886 is an iDEN Android without touchscreen

This…this is just odd. Every Android device we’ve seen to date has a touchscreen. It appears as though an upcoming handset might break that mold. Via Engadget, the Motorola i886 is an Android device that features an alphanumeric keypad and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. But the screen does not support touch functions, which really makes it stand out from other Android models — and not necessarily in a good way. It features GPS, a 2 megapixel camera, microSD memory expansion, and an accelerometer. Endgadget doesn’t think that you’ll be able to run Android apps on this, presumably because it lacks touch. That will certainly exclude some apps. But on my Nexus One I can run some apps using just the trackball, so perhaps the i886 will have some of the Android Market available to it. In any case, this one could definitely launch on Boost Mobile.
