Motorola i850 Cellphones Review

The Motorola i850 is a chubby little clamshell with its stub type antenna and a 122 gram weight. Its basically pretty similar to the i760 since both are iDen phones. Again the similarities do not end there but continue to the large internal color displays and monochrome external ones. However the Motorola i850 is superior considering that it is a camera phone. iDEN (Integrated Digital Enhanced Network) is a wireless technology from Motorola combining the capabilities of a digital cellular telephone, two-way radio, alphanumeric pager, and data/fax modem in a single network. iDEN operates in the 800 MHz, 900MHz, and 1.5 GHz bands and is based on time division multiple access (TDMA) and GSM architecture. It uses Motorola's Vector Sum Excited Linear Predictors (VSELP) vocoder for voice compression and QAM modulation to deliver 64 Kbps over a 25 KHz channel. iDEN is designed to give the mobile user quick access to information without having to carry around several devices. In early 2001, a new iDEN handset is scheduled for release that will tackle added business needs like logistics management and alerts. Currently, iDEN systems work in more than a dozen countries.
