Motorola VC6096 – in-vehicle fixed mount with Telematics
Motorola has recently announced that it will be dumping Windows Mobile completely and switching to Google’s Android, but in the rugged division there are still plenty of PDAs running Windows Mobile.
One of those PDAs is the VC6096.
Motorola VC6096 is an in-vehicle/fixed mount mobile computer, optimized for work force on the roads. Designed for transportation and logistics providers Motorola VC6096 promises to maximize driver productivity, improve safety and vehicle utilization.
The form factor is unique, comparing to the other rugged PDAs out there. Seems like Motorola tried to make it more user friendly this time by including a quite big screen and full QWERTY keyboard.
Connectivity looks promising with 3.5G GSM HSDPA WWAN as well as 802.11a/b/g WiFi… For transportation the Motorola VC6096 also has a SiRF Star III GPS receiver and of course Bluetooth.
Other hardware specs include SD card slot, five programmable soft keys, mic and speakers; all running on 128MB of RAM, 256MB flash, 624Mhz processor and Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro.
