Motorola released a CP200d two way radio this past week. The radio has MOTOTRBO digital features, but is in the CP family, which is Motorola’s best selling two way radio family.
The interesting thing here is how Motorola is executing brand extensions. Its rare to see a legacy product family have a new product introduced, roughly 10 years after it’s original release. Its a testament of the brand and product line. If the product line was not strong, then they would have released it within a different, or newer, product category.
Two way radios are a very niche subject and market, but they have always been an interest. Motorola has been the leader in this space for a very long time, and the product itself was the base for other communications products.
