Motorola M710 Car Phone

Designing for business travelers and other frequent drivers, Motorola has now unveiled its M710 phone for iDEN networks. The phone is made to use the instant, multi-way communication services of carriers such as Nextel by including quick access to push-to-talk as well as the optional use of a wide array of GPS features, according to Motorola: users can track not only their position but also roadside help, traffic, and weather. In business, the M710 can further serve as a beacon that lets employers keep track of cars. Motorola's handset can also function as a data modem and is physically designed for the realities of driving, with oversized buttons and text that reduce the amount of time spent looking away from the road. The company hasn't yet revealed availability or pricing but plans to sell the M710 to both personal buyers and companies alike.
