moto-i886-fcc

Motorola may have brought us the original Droid - one of the most game-changing Android devices ever - but with phones like the Backflip, the Cliq XT, and the Charm, it looks like they want to back down into the days of the Razr once more.

According to a recent FCC filing, Motorola will soon introduce a device with the model number i866, which will feature:

  • a dual keypad design with a numeric keypad on the front as well as a full QWERTY keyboard when slid open
  • iDEN technology, meaning PTT support (Push To Talk)
  • Android (we've confirmed it by looking at what you can see in the 2nd screenshot from the filing)

What it won't feature: a touchscreen. Of course, this is just an FCC filing, but as Android phones go, this doesn't look to be much of a winner.

Another interesting thing we noticed is a dedicated hardware Notifications key. Check it out in screenshot #3.
