Almost a week after Motorola i475 made its debut in Argentina via Nextel, the handset has just been introduced in Peru through the same carrier. Although there is no word on the pricing options, Nextel confirms the availability of the phone at all its channel sales.
Motorola i475 was initially launched in the United States via Boost Mobile and SouthernLINC carriers and slowly made its way into South America.
Argentina and Peru are the first two countries to receive the handset, especially given the fact that Nextel is one of the major carriers in these countries.
In fact, this is the main reason the phone was released in these countries, as the phone is fully compatible with the carrier’s iDEN (Push-to-Talk) technology, which provides users with a complete communication experience.
“The Motorola i475w handset is our most recent offering targeted at the Peruvian female market, thus confirming our interest for developing products having today’s women in mind, offering them communications in a youthful and fresh handset,” remarked Manuel Cigaran, key account manager for Motorola Mobility Peru.
Motorola Mobility and Nextel highlight the phone’s stylish design and advanced messaging features and claim that it is aimed at young and modern women. In this regard, the phone features two interchangeable cases (violet and pink) as well.
Motorola i475w comes with a full portrait QWERTY keyboard that allows users to type faster and more accurate. There’s also a small 2-inch QVGA display that supports 176 x 220 pixels resolution and 65k colors.
On the inside, the feature-phone packs 64 MB Flash memory and 16 MB of RAM. Other highlights of the phone include FM Radio, VGA camera, Myriad browser, microUSB and Bluetooth support, as well as built-in GPS receiver.
"We are constantly looking to diversify our service offerings by developing differentiated tools and technological devices that help our users connect with those that they care most about. We’re interested in making their lives easier, helping them solve problems and helping them become more successful and productive in their businesses," said Carlos Jauregui, product and services manager for Nextel Peru.
