Motorola Launches More Rugged Business Handhelds

Motorola has added several more business handheld models that offer rugged designs to its portfolio. Though Motorola’s consumer division has been committed to the Android operating system, the company’s enterprise division is still making Windows Mobile handhelds that target vertical markets and integrate barcode scanners and cameras. The first model introduced is the MC65, which is a more rugged version of the company’s ES400 handheld released in June. The MC65 will retail for $2,295 and will feature dual GSM-CDMA radios, barcode scanner and a 3.2-megapixel camera. Also, the company will add the MC959B and is a more traditional rugged device and is a bit bulkier than the ES400 and MC65, retailing for $3,295. This model supports Qualcomm’s Gobi chip, which does dual GSM-CDMA radios and is the first handheld to make use of Gobi technology; Gobi chips have been deployed by netbook makers in the past.
