Motorola Brings Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile to Ruggedised Pocket PC
Motorola, Inc. is making sure its HC700 series rugged mobile computing devices will support Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile for Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2005.

Leveraging Microsoft's trusted Windows Mobile software platform and Communicator Mobile, Motorola HC700 series devices are designed to provide enterprise field users with secure, flexible, real-time communications.

The first commercial off-the-shelf rugged handheld mobile computing solution from Motorola, the HC700 series is designed to meet the demands of mobile workforces in a variety of industries, including field force automation, field sales, direct store delivery, transportation, logistics, manufacturing and public safety.

Live Communications Server's presence functionality enables workers to quickly find and collaborate with coworkers, partners and customers to share critical and time-sensitive information. Presence awareness eliminates delays in locating and communicating with key work partners, helping customers make better, more informed business decisions faster and share ideas and information immediately, regardless of location.

The Live Communications Server architecture was built using the industry-standard protocol stack of SIP and SIMPLE, giving developers the ability to add presence to existing applications and create useful presence-aware solutions.

Part of Motorola’s new HC700 family of rugged mobile computers, the HC700-L handheld features an Intel Bulverde Xscale processor running at 416MHz, a color touch-screen display, an omni-directional area imager for ID/2D barcode imaging, both Wi-Fi (wireless LAN) and Bluetooth communications capabilities.

Memory configurations include 64/128MB SDRAM and 64/128MB flash, and mini SD slot for memory expansion.
