Motorola i930


It's bulky and expensive, but the i930 can roam the globe and keep your inbox up to date.

Global roaming in select countries Fast Walkie-Talkie service • Tight Outlook integration • GPS for location services

Bulky design Old version of Windows Mobile • No EDGE for faster data abroad • Doesn't support Direct Talk

Nextel Motorola i930 reviewed


With its relatively small screen, no QWERTY keyboard or stylus input, and preinstalled Mobile 2003 SE, the Moto i930 might be called a "semi-intelligent" phone instead of a full-fledged smartphone. And that seems to be the assessment of NewsFactor,...

Nextel i930


The Nextel i930 will appeal to two types of Nextel users: Microsoft fans and global roamers. The phone uses the Microsoft Windows Smartphone 2003 SE OS and works on networks across the globe. It fills a few key gaps in Nextel's lineup, but as a...

Works in more than 100 countries. Syncs with Microsoft Outlook. Full-size SD card slot

Works in more than 100 countries. Syncs with Microsoft Outlook. Full-size SD card slot

The i930 is Nextel's only Windows-based global phone, but not a winner if you need neither of those features.

Review: Motorola i930 - Nextel's First Windows Smartphone


One of the most unique features of the i930 (and potentially most valuable to some) is it's ability to operate on both the IDEN (800/900) and GSM (900/1800/1900) networks, making it the only Nextel phone that will operate both inside the United States...

Nextel sells the i930 for $499 by itself and $349 with a 2-year service commitment

Motorola i930 for Nextel Review - Smartphone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review


The old cliché "Better late than never" applies to this Smartphone. The Motorola i930 runs Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition for Smartphones (WM2003SE) rather than the new Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system. The phone was in development for a few...

Works overseas on GSM networks. Stable, has Push to Talk, excellent call quality and volume, full sized SD slot rather than MiniSD. Loud speakerphone ;

Older operating system, heavy and chunky design, no Bluetooth, uninspiring battery life

If you're a Nextel customer and hunger for an MS Smartphone, the i930 is currently your one and only choice. It's heavy and chunky and runs an older version of the Windows Mobile OS. That said, Motorola's implementation of the WM2003SE on this device...

This iDen i930 has a built-in VGA quality camera and camcorder with spotlight that will capture and save images and video.

PC Specialist Vortex i930 Xtreme review


PC Specialist's Vortex i930 Xtreme costs more than twice the price of most of the PCs we've seen this month and it doesn't even come with a monitor for that money. On the other hand, it's almost twice as fast in our benchmarks.

An incredibly powerful PC, with watercooling and an SSD. However, we’d swap out the graphics card for an ATI Radeon HD 5870.
