Versatile and feature packed, designed to support a wide
range of applications
When your enterprise deploys the Motorola FR68, you put
the combined capabilities of a mobile phone with GPS,
laptop computer, camera and barcode scanner at your
employees fingertips. Robust mobile voice
communications enable users to place individual phone
calls and internet accessibility on the Motorola FR68
allows employees the use of many of the key business
functions of their laptop ñ from email to messaging, and
access to business systems.
The 3.2 megapixel auto-focus color camera enables full or
half document capture as well as signature capture with
optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities. Color
photographs and video also enable a host of functions
essential for different industries. For example, delivery
personnel can photograph damaged shipments; retail
personnel will be able to capture and verify the condition
of returned items. Pre-sales and van sales staff can use
video to demonstrate promotions and products. Transport
officers can capture damage assessments and public
safety officers can capture violations.
The onboard barcode scanner also enables a wide range
of on-the-spot applications that streamline processes and
improve customer service. For example, workers in a retail
store can instantly check pricing and stock for a customer
by reading the barcode on a shelf or product tag ñ this
reduces wait time for a customer and increases customer
satisfaction.
Dispatch drivers can identify parcels and packages and
provide real time status updates on their deliveries.
Pharmaceutical sales associates can scan barcodes on
medication samples and capture the physicianís signature
to quickly and cost-effectively meet regulatory
requirements.
Tough, rugged, anywhere, anytime
Todayís mobile workforce requires a converged,
well-styled, compact and ergonomic, yet rugged device.
The Motorola FR68 has all these characteristics providing
outstanding total cost of ownership (TCO). The Motorola
FR68 is built to withstand demanding operating
environments and is engineered to withstand multiple
drops, a wide range of temperature, moisture and dust,
and still deliver reliable performance everyday.
Internal WWAN, WLAN and WPAN radios ensure an
aesthetically pleasing design whilst maintaining the
integrity and durability of the device, and enabling
superior connectivity. Industrial-grade connectors are
employed to withstand repeated connection of headset
jacks and charging cables throughout every business day.
The Motorola FR68 keypad is rated to a minimum of a
million key presses, the touch screen to a million taps and
300 thousand strokes, to ensure the Motorola FR68
delivers dependable performance ñ even with heavy daily
use.
Featuring the latest operating system for enterprise needs
Built on Microsoft Windows MobileÆ 6.1 Professional, the
Motorola FR68 offers significant business advantages.
Microsoft Windows MobileÆ 6.1 has been designed to
support mobile applications and data access. It features
significant enhancements such as a comprehensive set of
security policies, industry leading, government and
industry approved security and encryption protocols,
central device management, inventory and reporting; and
an unrivaled platform for deploying and developing mobile
applications.
Expandable storage and operation time
An integrated microSD slot ensures the Motorola FR68
is expandable, making the device flexible enough to
meet the demands of your enterprise today and
tomorrow. Mobile workers can easily add new
functionality and applications, such as expanded
storage or support of third party accessories such as
RFID readers.
An optional large capacity battery enables extended
operation times for this business essential device ñ
critical for workers in the field.
Asian Language Localization
In addition to the standard English language operating
system, the Motorola FR68 offers Microsoft Windows
MobileÆ 6.1 in Japanese, Korean, Simplified and
Traditional Chinese. The Motorola FR68 offers these
localized Asian language keypad interfaces for highly
productive data entry.
The Motorola advantage

While the Motorola FR68 is a rugged device, accidents
may happen; hence Service from the Start with
Comprehensive Coverage extends beyond normal wear
and tear repair coverage to include accidental
breakage such as cracked plastics, broken screens,
keypads and more.
Comprehensive Coverage is built into your Service from
the Start contract for the Motorola FR68 ñ providing
more service at a lower annualized price than a
standard service contract. This enhanced level of
coverage virtually eliminates surprise repair costs,
helps to lower your total cost of ownership, protects
your investment and productivity and provides service
peace of mind. However, the Motorola FR68 is currently
only available in Asia-Pacific until further notice.
