Nextel’s Opus One iDEN Android Phone Stolen and Video’d!

By Will Park on Saturday, December 12th, 2009 at 5:26 PM PST In Android, Boost Mobile, Hottest Hardware, Motorola, Sprint Nextel

It looks like Motorola (NYSE: MOT) (NYSE: MOT) really does have an iDEN-based Android phone in the works for Sprint (NYSE: S) (NYSE: S)’s Nextel network. Following on a leaked image of the device codenamed “Opus One,” we’ve stumbled upon a new set of hands-on videos that shows off Nextel’s upcoming Android phone in some detail – as much detail as the blur-tasticly choppy video work allows. YouTube user jay84305 apparently snatched the unreleased Android phone off the street somewhere in Florida’s South Beach and posted a trio of videos today, walking us through the Opus One’s push-to-talk features, video camera, Android apps, and other details in the kind of broken, slang-punctuated English befitting someone that would steal a phone from right underneath the owner’s nose.

Here’s what we know about the Motorola Opus One Android phone:

* It’s headed to Nextel (and possibly Boost Mobile)
* It runs Android 1.5 OS (Cupcake)
* It sports the “p1_opusone” model name under its battery cover.

From the looks of it, the Opus One seems to be every bit as capable an Android phone as we’ve seen for GSM and CDMA networks. It’s running Android 1.5 in the video, but it’s possible that we’ll see the Opus One launching with Android 2.0 or Android 2.1 sometime next year.

The kicker in this tale of a stolen unreleased Android smartphone is jay84305’s claim that he swiped the phone after some Motorola or Sprint employee dropped it next to their car. He says he “almost gave it back” but didn’t because the owner apparently looked like an “asshole.” At least he “[hopes] you don’t get fired.” The best part comes at 4:20 in video #2, when he says he doesn’t know what we really want to know about the phone because “it’s just a regular phone.” That and Jay’s “fuck you” shout out to Miami Police Officer M. Hernandez. Classic.





“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527
