Reston, VA -- Nextel and Motorola announced the launch of the Motorola i325 IS handset, an intrinsically safe, ruggedized phone that provides off-network communications capabilities. The Motorola i325 IS handset offers Direct Talk(SM), which allows users who are outside of the Nextel coverage area to manually transfer to a two-way radio-to-radio communication mode with a range of up to six miles depending upon specific conditions, such as terrain.(1)
The Motorola i325 IS handset is approved for use where flammable gases or vapors may exist. The durable handset also meets military specifications (810 F tests) for resistance to blowing rain, dust, shock, vibration, high/low temperatures and pressure, solar radiation, humidity, and salt fog. It has a rubber overmold, a sealed bottom connector cover to protect from liquid or dust damage, and a fixed antenna for durability.
"The Motorola i325 IS handset was designed for those who need advanced technical features in a durable form factor that meets Factory Mutual (FM) approval standards for intrinsic safety," said Rey More', senior vice president and general manager, Motorola's iDEN(R) Subscriber Group. "In addition, its off-network capabilities serve as a back-up means of communication for users who require reliability in areas with limited network coverage, such as at a remote job site."
For industrial users who need to stay in close contact with their teams, the Motorola i325 IS handset offers advanced tools to facilitate communications among groups. Its features include a color display; Java(TM) technology, which allows users to run and download applications; and GPS technology for location-based services. Beyond public sector applications, the Motorola i325 IS handset appeals to those working in other industries, including utilities, manufacturing and recycling.
