What is the Motorola Admiral? For a while now the thought has been that the Sprint QWERTY phone that was leaked a few weeks ago may be the Motorola Admiral. That phone will be the first Android phone to use Sprint Direct Connect service. However after going through some FCC documents I think there is a change that the Motorola i940 could be the Admiral. While going through the documents made available I noticed that Motorola refers to the i940 under the model name Admiral. The only other possibility I can think of is this is the phone that originally was to be called the Admiral. What I can tell you about the i940 so far is that is will be running on Sprint Nextel’s iDEN network. It will have a Freescale Zeus chipset, has a 5 mega pixel camera with flash, and that it is at the very least running Android 2.1. Like the Motorola i1 it will be using Opera as its default browser to optimize the web experience due to the slow data speeds on iDEN. If I were to guess I would have to say this will be hitting Boost Mobile. I only say that due to the fact that Sprint will be releasing phones running on Sprint Direct Connect soon. So it make sense to have this one hit Boost Mobile first; much like the i1. I will keep you informed about this as I do more research.
UPDATE: So I guess the Sprint Direct Connect QWERTY phone is the Admiral. Still have to wonder why the FCC paperwork has it listed as the Admiral, but like I said, maybe this USE to be the Admiral.
