Bigger than a Dell Streak at 6″, but with a relatively tiny 3.5″ screen, comes the Motorola entry into the hospital data race with its MC75A0-HC ‘Rugged Healthcare Enterprise Digital Assistant’ (EDA). Its features are numerous–it’s rugged (based on military standards), disinfectable, has a 3.2 megapixel camera, is HIPAA compliant and has a wide variety of point-of-care applications. Whether HIT CIOs will go for this is a question at this pricey rate, unless they already have a lot of Motorola in the hospital. Hat tip to John Farrell at MobileHealthWatch for getting the pricing info. Motorola release and product page/specs. eWeek article.
