Motorola announces MC55 handsets

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 6:15PM EST

Yikes. Here at BGR, we’d like to think that the days of having to sacrifice looks and form to have a truly “business-oriented” handset are long over. Handsets like the Nokia E71 and HTC Touch Pro are fine examples of sexy business gear and it would be hard to argue RIM hasn’t stepped up its designs significantly. From the looks of things however, not everyone agrees that business phones for certain industries can be as attractive as they are functional. Case in point: Motorola’s new industrial MC5590 and MC5574 handsets. Looking like a cross between a 10-year-old Globalstar GSP-1600 satphone and the Alcatel Lego Phone, the MC55 brothers sport ruggedized cases and just about nothing else worth mentioning. Basically, the only way either of these handsets is going to be desirable is if you like to pretend you’re the boss of a Colombian cartel in an 80s movie. These puppies will drop some time in Q2 and your dreams will be one step closer to a reality.
