Motorola walkie talkies

Motorola today launched a new range of colorful license-free walkie talkies for simple two-way radio communication. The company's TLKR T3 and T5 (site not updated) feature a practical hanging loop that enables a wide range of ways to carry as well as use the devices, which are designed for young people who enjoy being connected to friends, according to Motorola. The T3 comes in a pack of two that each feature eight channels for selecting the best frequency, up to 20 hours of battery life, a 5km range, a sleep function, and channel scan/monitor functionality. The T5 includes all of the aforementioned features -- minus battery life -- while adding 121 codes to channels for enhanced privacy alongside a 6km range. Both walkie talkies are slated for shipment in October, though Motorola has yet to confirm pricing for either model.

The TLKR T5 offers less battery life at 16 hours, but includes a twin-charger pod and separate DC charging jack. A backlit LCD display accompanies a room monitor with automatic power off and voice activation. Both models are available in red and blue, with the T3 also shipping in orange and the T5 coming in black.
