it has a codebar reader , wich means is good for industries, warehouses, supermarkets .
and for that is pretty goods , really good for make shopping " compare prices between shops".
i have to say moto ur are on good way , at least for professionals
This phone is for industrial propose. You will never see it in stores. Design is very smart and useful.
This phone is for people who work construction and who work in places where constant phone abuse is scene, and there for will appeal to that market doesn't take a brain surgeon to see that a construction worker wouldn't mind a slightly indestructible phone that can use walkie talkie, and that can still keep track of the next house or project he or she will be doing, if thats what its for theres no need for any other features, it will see to people it is designed for
Smart, but ugly! I want to see a big, HTC Touch HD like design Motorola, with 3.5,or 3.8 inch screen, and with 5 Mp camera.
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2009This thing looks like its from 1999!!Because other brands don't seem to have the capability to make some device...even 2099
anonym, 12 Mar 2009anyway,lack of usb 2 an 3G is strange for such a big and advanced device(same as presence of e... moreAsk your FedEX / UPS delivery boy / gal and see if they ever need USB 2.0 or 3G on their "handheld" device....for "scanning" purposes.
anyway,lack of usb 2 an 3G is strange for such a big and advanced device(same as presence of external antena...)
what the hell is that........... rocking never seen features,m impressed
There are are two versions of this phone one has a TWO WAY RADIO with an external antenna and one doesn't.
I can't beleive people can be so thick.
The external antenna is for the two way radio or walkie talkie function.
No question about the durability of Motorola device, I accidentaly left my phone inside my pocket and run under washing machine. yet it still work. However, HTC device and model's specs really outweigths moto phones
Ažuolas, 11 Mar 2009Simple: Q11 + A3100 = MC55Neither A3100 nor Q11 reads any barcode or RFID like MC55, so your equation does not work...
i wana say any company cant make the phone like this than the CAPABLE company moytorola
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2009Looks like a phone from the late 90´s, even then it was outdated.....Call me naive, which phones from the 90's can read off UPC / barcodes or even RFID tags?
Or did RFID tags even exist back then?
jou, 10 Mar 2009Stupid designer from Moto.
Moto making same mistakes like 5; 10 and 15 years ago! That's because it will take at leat 5, 10, or 15 years for other brands be capable to make anything similar to capture that segment of the market...not likely for anyone you know.
My company indeed is interested in such device for its scanning capabilites, and compare to other similar deveices (think about the device you see FedEX or UPS staff are carrying...), this unit is relatively small.
m3th4don, 10 Mar 2009i'm an architect. i use an e71 and an ARTE (have used e50, e51..etc) NO way ! Just curious as if you ever use your phones outdoor and drop them perhaps at least once a week and see if they can survive like Moto phones.
My friend's N76 only dropped ONCE, and the flip already turned 180 degrees and lost the flip open to answer function, while my friend's wife uses Moto V3maxx survived at least 50 similar impact and still works perfectly.
This MC series is NOT designed for people like you...the barcode scanning capabilities are likely for those in logistics.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Let's see when the other 2 brands you mentioned EVER can come out with such INDUSTRIAL device.
The device is capable to scan barcodes for logistics, delivery, products visibility, etc...
So if your favorite companies can come out with such device, let me know so my company can consider. (yes, my COMPANY is considering such barcode reading device...)
A PHONE for EVERYBODY eh? Some company can't even make its own WM base phone!
