    Default XTS5000/XTL5000 cancelled

    Got an email from one of our Moto reps today, XTL5000 and XTS5000 are cancelled. Last date for ordering is 10-31-2013. I was kind of surprised, I expected a couple more years I guess.

    Per the last Service Support Cancellation Matrix from MOL, there is no mention of it.

    According to our rep, it will be up on MOL sometime in June. The account managers usually get a heads-up about a month early.

    Makes sense, considering they're starting (have started) rolling out Phase 2 P25 systems - the 5k won't work on those.

    The 5K will work on Phase 2. However, Motorola chose to abandon their customers and not implement the code.

    I can't wait for the Vilking VP900 to get mainstream. It'll put Motorola on notice!

    I can confirm this, I have seen it in print. I'm waiting for a electronic copy from sales and I will post it here.

    Can someone recall when they were introduced? I think it was some time around 2002...

    I like how they haven't cancelled the XTL2500. It's the same damn radio, with a different head and codeplug.

    That is pretty awesome - they're not going to save a cent in manufacturing costs since the same tooling etc will still be required...

    I suspect it's to push the high-tier customer to the APX sooner.

    Very late 2001 - early 2002. So they've been manufactured more than a decade, not bad!
