Motorola announced that the newest member of the SLVR(TM) family, the Motorola L6, is now available exclusively with Cingular Wireless service at RadioShack stores nationwide.
The new Motorola L6 is less than half an inch thick, setting it apart from other mobiles in its class. The L6 has the same sleek look and feel of the popular Motorola SLVR(TM), with many of the must-have multimedia features mobile consumers expect -- a 4x zoom VGA digital camera with auto timer, video capture and playback, Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) and a generous amount of user memory for storage.
The Motorola L6 is available at RadioShack stores nationwide with Cingular Wireless service. The regular suggested retail price of the Motorola L6 is $99.99, but check with RadioShack for special promotional plans and offers.
Motorola announced the Motorola i580, the newest iDEN(R) handset to answer the call for an ultra-durable, stylish, fully equipped handset. It is the first rugged iDEN clam phone designed to meet strict military specifications for blowing rain, dust, shock and vibration and to be enhanced with an extensive multimedia experience, which includes Bluetooth, a 1.3 megapixel camera, video and messaging. The phone's durable design and rubber over mold can withstand even the toughest day on the job or the most demanding outdoor activities, for those who enjoy an active lifestyle. In addition, users can enjoy myriad "push-to" functions that make for a truly rewarding push-to-talk (PTT) experience.
The most complete ruggedized phone yet, the i580 contains features new to iDEN handsets, including:
*Push-to-Smart Replies - Discretely send a text message using PTT, even in the most difficult to communicate times.
*Push-to-Meet - Users can now create Datebook reminders on their iDEN handsets and send them to other i580 users via PTT.
*Push-to-X (PTX) Manager - The PTX Manager Menu allows users to control all of the i580's unique Push-To features from one, streamlined, intuitive menu.
*Enhanced support for the visually impaired -- The i580's Voice Playback functionality has a simulated voice to guide users through phone menus and through placing and receiving phone calls.
*Front Ported Audio Support - The i580 is equipped with dual, frontal speakers, as opposed to the traditional single rear speaker.
*New Lithium Ion Battery - Increased power packed into a compact design to support handset enhancements without a decrease in talk time.
The phone also has many of the features associated with Motorola's iDEN technology, including Bluetooth, location-based services, Selective Dynamic Group Call (SDGC), MOTOTalk(TM), support for expandable memory (Micro SD), integrated speakerphone, voice recorder, downloadable applications*, and a two-way radio for instant communication at the touch of a button throughout the continental US, and to Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, and Argentina.
The i580 will be available in Q2 of this year.
