Rosemont, IL -- Motorola today announced the new Motorola A780 -- a truly converged device offering the speed of EDGE technology coupled with the open, flexible environment of Java(tm) + Linux to deliver the ultimate handset for both work and play.

The classically chic A780 is designed to offer a rich end-user mobile experience that includes intense mobile office connectivity plus multi-media entertainment. It combines the ideal features of a mobile phone with the capabilities of personal digital assistant (PDA), digital camera, video player, and MP3 player packaged in one compact device featuring a brilliant 240 x 320 color touch screen and quad-band technology.

To support the business-side of life, the A780 harnesses the power of EDGE which offers increased efficiency and network speed (up to three times faster than wired dial-up), enabling consumers to download more content, faster. It features Bluetooth(R) wireless technology to allow for virtually instant wire-free connection between devices and the MOTOSYNC over-the-air synchronization solution for hassle-free coordination of corporate e-mail, calendar and contacts.

Built on an open Java + Linux platform, the A780 can also accommodate the coolest applications from games to productivity tools. Motorola launched the world's first handset built on Java + Linux, the A760, last year. The new A780, along with the recently released E680, further the company's commitment to making the Linux operating system a key pillar of its handset software strategy.

Viewing PDF attachments, as well as Microsoft(R) Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, is simple and convenient with the model A780's integrated document viewer. Surfing the Web with the full-html browser makes content look simply amazing on the large TFT color touch screen. And an easy-to-navigate user interface, built-in speakerphone and speaker independent voice dial provide even more mobile convenience.

Global entertainment is also made easy with features like built-in 1.3 mega pixel camera, video recording and playback, integrated MP3 player with enhanced sound and up to 48MB of removable TransFlash memory as well as multi-media messaging service (MMS) for sharing video, animations, photos and music with family and friends.

Pricing and Availability The Motorola A780 is expected to be available in Q4 2004.

*Network, subscription and SIM card or service provider dependent feature. Not available in all areas.
