Motorola today introduced two new GSM handsets to its Push-to-Talk over Cellular (PoC) portfolio -- the fashionable C698p and the fun, affordable C381p. Each handset is engineered to deliver Motorola's distinct PoC experience, but designed to fit different lifestyles and different budgets, giving consumers yet more choice when they 'Push-to-Talk'*.
Motorola is at the forefront of the PoC market with 23 network operator contracts covering 27 countries around the world. By adding the C698p and C381p handsets to its line up, Motorola has created a true multi-tiered PoC portfolio. This solution enables operators to extend Push-to-Talk services to even more subscribers -- from mass market to high-end -- meeting a variety of consumer needs and helping pave the way for future "Push-to" services like video and data.
A cool, high-tech "candybar" styled handset, the Motorola C698p is as fun as it is fashionable. The Motorola C698p features dual high-audio speakers optimized to deliver a superior audio experience for using PoC, listening to the latest MP3's or just chatting with friends. It also boasts an integrated VGA camera and a large 65,000-colour display screen -- plus key features like preloaded and downloadable games and tri-band technology -- to give consumers the perfect blend of entertainment and communication.
The Motorola C381p brings connection and personalization to the mass- market. Whether using PoC to connect to co-workers, friends or family or experiencing other exciting messaging options like MMS, the C381p is a mighty mobile that packs a punch. To shine professionally, the C381p lets you synchronize your calendar and contacts with your PC via Motorola's Mobile Phone Tools software and multi-task while on its integrated speakerphone.
Both the C698p and C381p feature Motorola's signature PoC user interface, dedicated Push-to-Talk key and one-touch access to presence-enabled PoC contacts for quick one-to-one or group communication. They join Motorola's current portfolio of PoC-enabled mobiles -- featuring the popular V400p for GSM operators and T300p and V65p for CDMA operators.
