The Motorola i1 has been confirmed for Sprint and will go on sale Sunday, July 25. The i1, which offers Push-to-Talk functionality and a rugged exterior designed to handle the elements, will cost $149.99 with a two-year service agreement or eligible upgrade. It will first go on sale through Sprint Telesales (1-800-Sprint) and then be available in stores beginning August 8.

Canadian carrier TELUs has confirmed that it will bring the Motorola i1 up north as well, but it hasn’t offered any solid details on when or how much. A TELUS product page reveals that it will offer the i1 this fall through Mike, the company’s iDEN network.

The Motorola i1 features a 3.1-inch touchscreen, iDEN, MOTOBLUR UI, Swype, a 5 Megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0, and Android 1.5. Click here for more information. The phone will also be sold through Boost Mobile and SouthernLinc.
