Motorola and Yahoo! Demonstrate Mobile Podcasting at 3GSM World Congress
Take your must-have entertainment podcast with you anytime, anywhere
BARCELONA, Spain – 3GSM World Congress - 13 February 2006 – Today at 3GSM World Congress 2006, Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT), a global leader in wireless communications, and Yahoo! Inc. (Nasdaq:YHOO), a leading global Internet company, will demonstrate the use of Yahoo! Podcasts on a mobile device, showcasing the future of how consumers access entertainment on the go.
As part of the continuing Motorola and Yahoo! relationship, this mobile application would allow consumers to not only drag and drop podcasts directly from the PC straight to their mobile phone through the Yahoo! Music Engine, but would also let consumers directly download podcasts over-the-air* to their handset using an integrated application. Demonstrated on a Motorola RAZR V3x, the application is extremely flexible and may be made available on a variety of Motorola handsets.
“Motorola is committed to delivering ‘wickedly cool’ products and solutions that make always-on entertainment and communication a reality for consumers. This demonstration showcases that with Yahoo! services integrated on mobile devices – consumers can access the entertainment they want while on the go,” said Chris White, senior director, Global Product Marketing, music category at Motorola.
“Yahoo! gives consumers an easy way to access the universe of podcast entertainment like celebrity interviews, news, sports, and more,” said Joe Hayashi, director, product management, Yahoo!. “Together with Motorola we are thrilled to be able to demonstrate the future of podcasting, letting consumers take their media experiences on their mobile phones to be enjoyed anytime and anywhere"
Yahoo! and Motorola first announced their wide-ranging relationship in July 2005. The companies are collaborating to provide consumers with easy access to Yahoo!’s core products and services on millions of Motorola mobile devices and broadband-enabled products for the connected home. In January 2006, Yahoo! and Motorola announced they are working to globally launch Yahoo! Ready for Motorola devices to give consumers an easy way to access and use their Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Messenger, Yahoo! Address Book and Yahoo! Calendar services while on the go.
The Motorola RAZR V3x UMTS handset uses Freescale Semiconductor’s 3G/UMTS RF and baseband solutions.
