Xata Turnpike Certifies the Motorola Admiral™, the Nation’s First Android Push-to-talk Device
MINNEAPOLIS, MN… Xata Corporation announced that, since introducing the Android platform in early 2011, the company has certified 10 new devices, most recently the Motorola Admiral and the Motorola Atrix 2™. Xata is the first EOBR solution provider to bring 4G connectivity into the truck cab.
“Xata remains committed to certifying the devices fleets want to use with our Xata Turnpike solution, so we jumped at the opportunity to support the Motorola Admiral. The Admiral is the first Android-powered smartphone with ‘push-to-talk’ functionality, utilizing the Sprint™ Direct Connect™ gold-standard network,” said Christian Schenk, vice president, product marketing, Xata. “We’re excited to be among the first to offer fleets and owner-operators the ability to instantly connect with drivers, dispatchers and customers.”
Driven by a 1.2 gigahertz (GHz) processor, the Admiral is designed for both speed and durability. It resists dust, shock, vibration, and operates well in extreme temperatures, making it one of the most flexible trucking industry smartphones on the market.
Also just certified by Xata Turnpike is the Motorola Atrix 2, which runs on the AT&T network. It features 4G connectivity and a 1 GHz dual-core processor, enabling drivers and others to quickly download all the files they need, without having a Wi-Fi connection.
In addition to these and more than 20 other Blackberry, Intermec, HTC, Motorola and Samsung smartphones, five Android tablet computers have already been certified by Xata Turnpike, including the popular Dell Streak 7, the Galaxy 7 and 10.1, and the HTC View.
“As an industry leader, we’re working to certify all the types of mobile devices our customers want to use,” said Schenk, who explained that Xata Turnpike has already certified the most popular Android phones and will soon announce the certification of two others: the Motorola Bionic and the Motorola Droid Razr.
