Motorola TETRA PDA Will be Based on Windows Mobile
Motorola, Inc. has announced the first personal digital assistant (PDA) to operate on TETRA (TErrestrial Trunked RAdio) networks. The new PDA delivers public safety users pocket-sized access to essential two-way data applications whilst on the move.

The TETRA PDA is based on Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0, and comes with 128MB SDRAM and 64MB flash memory. Memory can be expanded with SD memory cards. Options available include Bluetooth, WLAN, GPS and camera, allowing pictures to be circulated quickly from the PDA. The device measures 145mm (L) x 83mm (W) x 35-50mm (H) and weighs less than 500 grams.

The PDA has been developed to meet the rugged requirements of public safety organisations that need secure access to real-time information on the move. Users can access person and vehicle records, report crimes and accidents, and issue tickets via the PDA’s application suite.

According to Motorola, using the TETRA network to deliver data to the PDA gives emergency services access to a controllable data pipeline that remains continuously available, even during a major incident, and at a competitive cost.

Nick Carter, Product Manager, Motorola TETRA subscribers, comments: “Motorola developed this PDA to reflect the growing needs of customers who want to deliver relevant applications directly to mobile officers. With the launch of this product we are demonstrating TETRA as the appropriate, reliable and secure bearer for public safety users of data. The pocketable, TETRA PDA and the applications suite it can provide will really help meet their productivity needs.”

The PDA supports authentication and encryption with the same levels of security as Motorola’s TETRA radios. The device will be commercially available by Q3 2006.
