After Nokia’s announcement of its 7140 Push to talk phone the other week Motorola has become the second manufacturer to announce a PTT mobile for the UK market. The V400p features a PTT button that enables the handset to communicate like a walkie-talkie with other similarly specified handsets (click here for more).
At present only Orange has confirmed the launch of a PTT service in Europe although other networks are expected to announce similar programmes soon. The phone itself is a clamshell model, not unlike Motorola’s recently launched V500 model, featuring a 65k colour screen, VGA camera, Java , POP3 e-mail compatibility and MP3 polyphonic ringtones. Both the V400p and the 5140 go on sale in the UK in April/May.
