Motorola Solutions unveils web-based application framework

Motorola Solutions announced the launch of Motorola RhoElements, a
web-based application framework.

It is designed to allow businesses to cost-effectively develop and
deploy web-based applications on existing Motorola Windows Embedded Handheld
and Windows Embedded Compact mobile computers as well as Motorola’s recently
announced ET1 Android-based enterprise tablet.

Motorola RhoElements is the first of several product releases targeted
at developers within Motorola’s customer base and Channel ecosystem. Leveraging
Motorola’s widely deployed PocketBrowser product, a framework for web-based
line-of-business applications, it provides an important new way to develop
applications on existing Windows-based industrial mobile computers and offers a
bridge for seamless application support on future mobile computing devices and
operating systems.

RhoElements provides a modern HTML5/advanced JavaScript/CSS application
framework for high-performance web-based applications, enabling a seamless
transition from terminal emulation solutions or legacy browser-based
applications to more powerful and user-friendly web-based applications.

RhoElements allows enterprise customers and Channel partners to leverage
on the productivity of web-based applications, cutting down the costs for
application development, management and support.

RhoElements allows developers to offer enterprise users applications
with a consumer-style look and feel with consistency across device type, screen
size and operating system.

Developers can optimize network utilization and enable continuous
operation when users temporarily lose connectivity leveraging on HTML5 features
such as application caching and web storage.

Developers can take advantage of the enterprise-rich features found in
Motorola enterprise mobile

“Motorola Solutions has designed the RhoElements application development
platform in response to the proliferation of multiple devices and multiple
operating systems in enterprises. Today, the enterprise decision maker is faced
with additional costs to rewrite applications for different operating systems
or to line up additional resources for new application development or to port
existing ones on to new operating systems,” said Phey Teck Moh, corporate vice
president, Motorola Solutions Asia Pacific.

“With the RhoElements platform, CIOs can break free from this
significant cost every time a new device or a new Operating System is adopted
in the enterprise and instead, invest resources in enhancements to the existing
applications. Simply put, RhoElements is one application framework for multiple
form factors and operating systems, which directly translates to savings,” Moh
