Florence, KY, December 29, 2007 --( BlueStar, the leading innovator in solutions-based distribution for Auto ID, Point-of-Sale, Mobility and RFID products, is announcing that it is distributing the flagship Motorola MC70 Enterprise Digital Assistant with new integrated GPS (Global Positioning System) functionality.

The flagship MC70 is a rugged handheld mobile device that incorporates a mobile phone, PDA, computer, scanner and imager in a single unit designed for the rigors of all-day, everyday usage. This compact, lightweight device combines multi-mode wireless networking, voice and data communications and advanced data capture in an enterprise productivity tool that can support nearly any application in any environment. Now with new location capabilities, Motorola’s MC70 is once again connecting people and products to information resources, and transforming businesses—making them more efficient and responsive to customers to gain a competitive advantage.

For workers outside the four walls, support for GSM/EDGE cellular networks delivers global coverage, fast wireless data speeds that enable rich applications, and enterprise-level security. The integrated GPS functionality enables the enterprise to locate drivers, re-route delivery workers, find missing devices anywhere in your enterprise, provide vehicle navigation, and more.

“GPS is one of the hottest trends in the mobile computing, because it provides many technical advantages ranging from turn-by-turn directions for the user to the enterprise being able to automate the dispatch of its field workers,” explains Greg Seelbach, Director of Market Development. “Integrating GPS technology in the Motorola MC70, which is becoming one of the most popular mobile computers sold by this industry, means this GPS-enabled model is all but guaranteed success.”
