The ES400S runs on Windows Embedded Handheld technologies such as the Windows Mobile 6.5.3 platform, and has application compatibility and support for industry-specific apps, along with advanced security and device management mobility features, Sprint said. Other features include a 3-inch VGA touch screen, a customizable Motorola Enterprise User Interface (MEUI), which provides one-touch access to applications, a business-focused home screen, an enterprise camera application, a call management screen with a touch-friendly dial pad and accessible device management tabs.

The device also has a built-in biometric fingerprint reader, a 3.2 megapixel camera with red line aimer for barcode scanning and one-button push-to-scan for one- and two-dimensional barcode reading, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g with enterprise security, 1 gigabyte ROM/256 MB RAM, and CDMA EVDO Rev.
