Motorola Gets Red Carpet Ready With Special Edition PEBL Phone For Top Directing and Acting Nominees


Motorola’s Brand-New Iconic Phone Design “In Hand” on Hollywood’s Biggest Night!

LOS ANGELES, Ca – 15 February 2006 – Motorola makes its annual walk down the red carpet on Hollywood’s biggest night by continuing its tradition of providing a not-yet-available, state-of-the-art mobile phone to the Academy Award nominees in the top directing and four acting categories. In honor of their nominations, the 78th Annual Academy Award nominees will receive a special-edition PEBL phone in a gunmetal color finish - the only consumers to have this edition of the just-available phone. Combining sophisticated technology with innovative design, the special edition Motorola PEBL is sure to help the nominees stand out and shine on their big night. Recipients will also receive Motorola’s new H700 Bluetooth® headset and three (3) months of T-Mobile wireless service. T-Mobile USA is the exclusive carrier of the PEBL phone.

In keeping with Motorola’s traditional Oscar phone efforts, the Academy Award’s directing and acting nominees’ phones are packaged in a custom made, keepsake box. This year’s package is reminiscent of a classic movie theatre ticket and is personalized with the category and name of each nominee in acknowledgement of their recognition by the Academy.

Inspired by the feel of a stone worn smooth by water, the Motorola PEBL captures attention for its innovative form with rounded edges, a vertical external display and unique dual-hinge mechanism for effortless, one-handed opening. Its smooth and sophisticated feel presents a timeless elegance with a unique finish sure to garner notice. In addition to the eye-catching shape, the feature-forward PEBL is fully functional allowing users to browse the World Wide Web*, share multimedia files* and includes integrated Bluetooth technology. The Bluetooth headset H700 provides Motorola’s most advanced features in its most discreet headset. It boasts unsurpassed call clarity from noise reduction technology to Motorola’s exclusive RapidConnect® technology, and it’s an amazing 30% smaller than its predecessor. Additional features include video capture and playback, integrated VGA digital camera for quality still photography, speech activated and digit dial, a color display, picture caller-ID* and downloadable games*.
