It’s All About Me! Motorola Experiences Showcased at the 2006 National Show Enable the Consumer to “Roam Where They Want To”


Motorola’s fixed-mobile solutions keep the MOTO Me connected to what I want, when I want it!

ATLANTA – 10 April 2006 – New, immersive experiences enabled by solutions from technology pioneer Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) are making life less complicated for the MOTO Me, delivering anytime, anywhere access to the important people and unique content in life.

The MOTO Me can seamlessly move, or “Moto,” through the different places in his or her life – home, auto, office, out-and-about – and still have uniquely personal information and entertainment services within reach. These services go far beyond traditional “quadruple play” offerings, creating truly immersive experiences such as digital entertainment available from any nearby screen, voice-over-IP and cellular calling unified on one device, or personalized content delivered on-demand to a user’s location.

Using the Motorola innovations showcased at the 2006 National Show (Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, Ga., Stand # 1537), operators can empower the MOTO Me inside each of their customers, with solutions that deliver uninterrupted, experience-based services across both broadband and wireless networks. The Motorola technologies being shown can also allow operators to easily extend the reach of their networks without laying cable.

“The Motorola innovations on display here at NCTA demonstrate real-life seamless mobility experiences -- linked across all of life’s locations through simplified access to entertainment and communication,” said Dan Moloney, president, Motorola Connected Home Solutions. “These Motorola solutions work together to erase the barriers between places and services -- empowering people to customize and connect with the content essential to their lives, and extending the operator’s brand beyond the physical walls of the home.”

A global innovator in wireless, broadband, and home entertainment, Motorola will share its insights, showcase a broad variety of solutions, and even do some entertaining at NCTA. For more information, visit Highlights include:
