Introduces thin and lightweight SL Series portable radio.

Motorola Solutions has expanded its MOTOTRBO professional digital communications portfolio with the release of the SL Series portable radio.

Featuring a rugged, high-resolution colour display, the SL Series is equipped with a built-in photo sensor that can automatically detect ambient lighting and adjust the display brightness for optimal viewing in all lighting conditions.

Touted as the world's thinnest and lightest digital radio in its class, the SL Series portable radio has the ability to automatically adjust the radio's volume to fit background noise and allows users to connect Bluetooth audio accessories without an external adaptor.

"Motorola Solutions' customers in many markets wanted a large, simple-to-read display to help improve texting and access to applications such as work-order ticket management," said Pauline Tng, director of Distribution, Professional Two-way Radio and Accessories & Energy, South & East Asia, Motorola Solutions, Asia Pacific.

"We designed the SL Series to meet these needs and help customers collaborate and communicate more efficiently."

Portable small-sized device

The SL Series boast features that allow users to provide superior customer service and faster response times.

The radios in the series offer three programmable option buttons that allow up to nine favourite features to be programmed for easy access.

Motorola claims that the SL Series supports the industry's largest portfolio of data applications, and also offers vibrate alert, covert mode and an integrated antenna design that optimises range performance.

These portable radios also include a comprehensive portfolio of earpieces, single-unit and multi-unit chargers, and a flexible wrist strap or swivel belt clip carry holder.

 "We are taking the MOTOTRBO platform to the next level with the SL Series - our smallest, thinnest-ever digital two-way radio - a product ideal for those users who value small size and discretion," said Bruce Claxton, senior director, Innovation and Design, Motorola Solutions.

"Creating revolutionary and innovative products is a priority for Motorola Solutions. Through intensive user research, we listened to our customers' needs and came up with a truly game-changing device with the SL Series."
