Motorola Opus One gets the full spec sheet lowdown…

Android is quickly becoming “the” OS to have. While the software itself is constantly changing, the hardware too is going for a wild ride. If you don’t like the current crop of Android handsets, give it a few weeks as the market is changing that fast. For most, GSM is the way to go for Android goodness. But don’t discount CDMA too quickly as there are a few gems there as well — hello Moto Droid and Droid Eris. But many will be quick to point out that in the states at least, GSM and CDMA are not the only games in town. There is another, albeit less popular player in the mix — iDen/Nextel.

For those craving the most bleeding edge devices and fastest mobile speeds, Nextel isn’t even a thought in their minds. No matter how you slice it, the iDen network that powers Nextel is simply too old and antiquated to get steal any other carriers’ users. For those who don’t have a choice because of either corporate or coverage restraints, Nextel is the way to go. So whether by choice or by force, Nextel users now have an Android device to call their own.

The Motorola Opus One continues Motorola’s weird fascination with the iDen scene by releasing a rather ho-hum (to most, super duper to the standard Nextel affair) device. Don’t let my words and thoughts permeate your thought making process. Have a look at the spec’s for yourselves…

  • Android 1.5
  • 3.1? HVGA 320×480 capacitative touchscreen display
  • iDEN PTT & PTX
  • Bluetooth — Wi-Fi 802.11b/g — A-GPS
  • 512MB Flash / 256MB of RAM
  • 64k and 128k iDEN SIM card support
  • Accelerometer/Proximity Sensor
  • Home, Menu, Back, Speaker buttons are capacitive buttons with haptic feedback
  • 2.5mm headset jack
  • “Enterprise email”
  • Flash Lite v3.1.x

The standard yet tired 528MHz workhorse processor found in pretty much every other Android phone is also present earning the “mid-range” moniker for this device. Rather meager specs aside, I’m sure Nextel users are doing a jump for joy in their corporate paid for seats this very moment, knowing that some Android love is in deed coming their way. Anyone looking to pick a few of these up — possibly even switching in the process?
