iDEN getting revamped into DoD iDEN

While it’s great news for Motorola, many businesses will be forced to switch to CDMA PTT. Many people have already complained about the services and it won’t be getting any better for the years to come. Motorola will be providing dual-mode CDMA/iDEN phones during the transition years before DoD takes over the iDEN bands for encrypted governmental communications.
Will PTT (Push-to-talk) get better? Perhaps when Sprint-Wimax is rolled out. Unfortunately, with the overhead in the connection, it will never compete with iDEN’s radio technology. We might see an exodus of businesses as they search for a better replacement solution.
