Qchat phones announced

You know, it’s taken Sprint 2 years to put qchat into production and in that time the cost of talk minutes have dropped enormously and text messaging uptake has grown significantly. Frankly, I haven’t heard the annoying chirp of the PTT feature in over 18 months except for the two dweebs I used to live next to. They were city workers who drive big trucks, go poaching, and basically were kids playing CB with one another. That’s not really something to dump a large amount of capital into, IMHO.

Tag onto that the fact that the construction industry is absolutely annihilated by the sub-prime market and what you have here is a product looking for a market, 2 years too late. Anyhow, Sprint recently announced the phones that will support this service and phonescoop covered it here.
