Phone enhances productivity at an affordable price

Plantation, FL –July 18, 2006 – Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today introduced the Motorola i670, a new multi-function mobile communications device that offers a wide range of productivity-enhancing solutions for business users at an affordable price. The clamshell-type device features a sleek, all black design and a large internal 130x130 color display.

The new Motorola i670 is loaded with technology-rich features, including:

* Original Push-to-Talk (PTT) communication, which Motorola pioneered, that allows i670 users to connect instantly and conveniently to one or many co-workers with the touch of a button. Information is sent over an upgraded PTT network that quickly transmits voice and data.*

* JAVA® technology that enables downloading of interactive content and applications – from high-powered business tools to quality ring tones.*
* Direct Talk™ off-network digital walkie talkie capability, which creates a temporary short-range virtual network with other capable units so users can stay connected even in out-of-coverage areas.
* Multimedia Messaging Services (MMS) offers users the ability to transfer messages comprising text, sounds, images and video to MMS capable handsets.*
* Group Walkie-Talkie allowing the user to establish a private conference call, of up to 20 people, saving time and improving productivity.*

“This exciting new productivity tool delivers the features that are most important to business users, along with the flexibility and convenience of the most up-to-date technology – at an affordable price,” said Peter Aloumanis, general manager, U.S. Markets Division, Motorola’s iDEN Mobile Devices. “This is one more example of Motorola’s diverse product and service offerings designed to meet the needs of all our customers.”
