Sprint announces the rugged, push-to-talk-equipped Motorola Titanium

Summary:Ready for battle, the Motorola Titanium is stronger than strong and push-to-talk-ready.

Meet Motorola's newest toughphone - the Titanium,

Featuring a 3.1-inch screen, full keyboard, and Android 2.1, the Titanium may look like any other smartphone, but the aptly-named device is probably more durable than you are.

The Titanium is U.S. Military Standard 810-certified, meaning that it is, literally, prepared for everything. Dust, vibration, shock, solar radiation, low pressure, temperature extremes - the Titanium is built to withstand it all.

In case you were wondering who, precisely, Motorola's newest phone was made for, just take a look at the product shot above. The hat on James S's head should give you your answer.

Motorola did not announce a release date or price point for the Titanium, but one should be headed our way eventually.
