AT&T Selling Motorola Tundra VA76r, Works in Rain, Frozen Temps & Harsh Outdoors


AT&T is now selling the Motorola Tundra VA76r, a
rugged 3G clamshell phone with a tough exterior that works in dripping rain, freezing temperatures, and other harsh outdoor conditions. The Tundra VA76r, offers multitasking, voice activation, email, GPS, music and 3G connectivity.

The Motorola Tundra VA76r can be heard in harsh
environments with Motorola's CrystalTalk Plus with dual microphone
technology. Users can immediately connect to a single person or an entire team with
the touch of a button using PTT technology.

Workforce applications of the Tundra VA76r, include voice activation, phone book locking for call restrictions, a rugged antenna
and keys that can be easily pressed while wearing gloves.

Tundra VA76r offers text
messaging, e-mail and web browsing at high speeds with 3G connectivity. It has access to AT&T Music and a 2.0 megapixel camera for
still images and video capture.

Tundra VA76r also has 100 MB of available memory and up
to 4GB of optional removable memory, and it can be paired with a host of
compatible Bluetooth-enabled accessories.

Motorola Tundra VA76r is priced at $199.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate with a two-year contract. When you add the Wireless and Mobile News'  $50 Off on AT&T phones or accessories with a plan coupon-link that's a decent price for one of the few phones you can use in the rain.  For instance we do not recommend that use the BlackBerry Storm outside in a storm.

The Tundra is designed to withstand the most strenuous
conditions, meeting U.S. 810F Military Specifications (MIL) for drop, dust,
vibration, humidity, severe temperatures and rain.

Tundra features
easy access to AT&T Navigator and enables advanced location and optional add-
on enterprise tracking services such as TeleNav Track and Xora(TM) Mobile
Workforce Management tools to help users find their way -- and their teams --
more efficiently to help increase productivity.

Plus, the Motorola Tundra from AT&T has a multi-tasking operating system, allowing
more than one application to run at a time. AT&T's network also allows for
simultaneous voice and data use, so go ahead, answer the phone -- TeleNav
Track, Xora or other applications will not be interrupted and will continue to
run seamlessly in the background.

Additionally, Tundra allows workforce managers to lock the address book of
the device, ensuring investments in your mobile workforce are 100 percent
devoted to work.
