Prophesy Transportation Solutions has expanded its Prophesy Mobile Comm mobile communications solutions, adding several new data and voice networks, GPS devices, account services and more. The latest addition to the company’s device lineup is the new Sprint/Sanyo PRO-700 model handset, which Prophesy says will give users the best of both worlds in push-to-talk functionality and broad service coverage.

Prophesy says all TrackerSeries desktop and Web-based applications now are compatible with the PRO-700 model, which was chosen for its rugged design (meets Military Specification 810F; certified for dust, shock and vibration), GPS capability and field reliability. The phone also features a clamshell design, speakerphone capabilities and several other features. The Bloomfield, Conn.-based company says it will add other handset models as they become available.

Prophesy says the major advantage of the PRO-700 is that it is capable of using Nextel’s push-to-talk feature while operating on the Sprint CDMA voice network, which will appeal to users who wish to continue enjoying the convenience of push-to-talk, but also require the wider national coverage of the Sprint network. The integration of these technologies is seamless and automatic, allowing full use of Prophesy Mobile Comm features with no extra input required by the user, according to the company.
