The device is built to military specifications, but it's for everyday use, the company claims.

Motorola tipped its hand on its plans for off-the-shelf mobile computing devices for mobile enterprise workforces Monday by unveiling its HC700-L, the first in a series of planned handheld solutions.

As the inaugural version of Motorola's new HC700 family of rugged computers, the device is built on an Intel Xscale processor and Microsoft Windows Mobile platform. The HC700-L also features a color touch-screen display, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless capability as well as an omni-directional area imager for ID/2D barcode imaging.

"The HC700-L is designed and tested to military environmental specifications to withstand the rigors of every day use," the firm stated in its announcement of the new device. "The HC700-L is ideal for individual field users and work teams in need of mobile data applications such as remote data base inquiries, job ticketing and field service, sales force automation, asset management and inventory management."

The firm said it will introduce additional members in the HC700 family in early 2006.
