Nokia XR20's cameras can take sharp photos, great for capturing memories and documentation of important materials. Plus, Nokia also designed the device with OZO Playback for consumers to enjoy the best of audio entertainment.

Overall, the Nokia XR20 will be a tough contender in the rugged device market. It has a comfortable design, military-grade durability, and is one of the toughest screens from Nokia yet. And with its Android 11 Operating System, businesses can maximise the use of the device for work applications.

Push to Talk Services: Then and Now

Motorola has been a leading provider of PTT devices for the past few years. Their two-way radios and rugged devices have played a great contribution in the field of various industries.

The company's acquisition of the Kodiak Network became the talk of the town for the mission-critical market a few years back in 2017. Motorola Solutions already had leverage when it came to mission- critical communication solutions. Acquiring Kodiak Networks further strengthened their hold in the market, as the company was a known cloud-based PTT solution platform. Kodiak back then also added a complementary PTToC solution for Motorola's Wave PTT device. This enabled WAVE to connect between smartphones, radios, and computers through wireless and broadband. Up to date, Motorola still services global platforms which use technology from Kodiak Networks.

Technology is moving fast, and businesses can now get the same functionality as a two-way radio on their Android or Apple device with just an application. Two-way radios and PTT devices had their golden age, but with today's smartphones, most workers can do the same thing and more on their devices. It has led to the industry's transition from PTT to Push to Talk Over Cellular web-based applications.

One factor that's crucial for industries is real-time communication. Aside from Motorola, companies like Telstra provide services that allow constant communication among teams with a wider reach. Back then, two-way radios only had coverage for up to a few kilometers.

Why are companies making the switch with web-based applications? Some of Telstra's Push to Talk Services Key Features are one-touch calling, advanced multimedia sharing, flexible device compatibility, and carrier-integrated solutions.
