The new handsets to provide call clarity for mobile workers in noisy and hazardous environments
Motorola has announced two new enterprise-grade iDEN handsets, the r765 and the r765IS, custom-designed for the utility, petrochemical and industrial markets. The r765 is expected to be available for purchase in the second quarter of 2009, while the r765IS is expected to be available in the third quarter of 2009.
Motorola claims that these communications services for private iDEN networks provide mobile workers in noisy and hazardous environments with call clarity and access to data applications, helping ensure they stay connected, informed and productive.
Leveraging the best features of a two-way radio, cellular phone, and paging and packet data, Motorola’s r765 and r765IS handsets are reportedly engineered to ensure loud and clear communications, even in high volume environments.
Greg Spillane, director of Motorola Enterprise Radio Networks, said: Building on an extensive history of innovation and industry firsts, Motorola continues to deliver voice and data solutions that maximize enterprise mobility.
Designed and certified to meet US Military 810 Spec, Motorola’s rugged r765 and r765IS handsets are built for real-world job site punishment, ensuring that workers almost anywhere can leverage the rich voice and data capabilities of iDEN-based networks.
