Motorola offers a handful to Asia-Pacific enterprise customers

Motorola has announced a pair of handheld computers specifically for the Asia-Pacific market.

Motorola's FR68 enterprise digital assistant and FR6000 rugged handheld computer are both designed for and exclusively available in Asia-Pacific countries.

This is a unique step for Motorola as a global company, and a demonstration of our commitment to our local customers. Motorola's Asia Pacific team has developed the FR series based on local customer insights," said Paul Blinkhorn, Australia country manager and vice president, enterprise mobility, Motorola Australia and New Zealand and Asia-Pacific channels.

"Feedback on form factor, weight, ergonomics, scanning capability, 3.5G and WiFi connectivity, ruggedness and a compact flash for docking companion devices have been incorporated into the FR series' design," he added.

Features of the locally designed devices include HSDPA connectivity with simultaneous voice and data operation, GPS navigation, wireless LAN, Bluetooth, IrDA, a 624MHz Marvell XScale CPU and Windows Mobile 6.1.

They are aimed at the retail, healthcare, logistics, transportation, utilities, manufacturing and public safety markets, and are designed to withstand drops of three feet (just under 1m) onto concrete surfaces as well as dust and water.

The devices are intended for use with enterprise applications such as ERP and CRM.

Prices start at $A2413.84 for the FR68 and $A2842.84 for the FR6000.
