Motorola Introduces Slate of New Handsets for Everyday Communication


Seven New Additions to the Motorola W Series Portfolio Deliver High Style and Great Features at an Attractive Price

Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today expanded its offering of devices for “everyday communication” with the introduction of seven new W Series handsets. The new devices – W156, W160, W175, W180, W206, W213, and W377 – are inspired by the vision of delivering Motorola’s high-tier style and innovation at an affordable price point. Each device features tools users need to stay connected, like FM radio which is featured on the W160, W180, W213 and W377, (optional headphones are required to listen to the radio). Motorola’s proprietary CrystalTalkTM Technology, which automatically adjusts audio to ensure clear calls even in noisy environments, is featured on the W156, W160, W175, W180, W206, and W213, and was previously found only on Motorola’s premier handsets.
