Today, Motorola, Inc., a global leader in wireless, broadband and automotive communications technologies, announced the debut of the Motorola MPx — a revolutionary mobile device combining always-on connectivity in a never-before-seen form factor. The Motorola MPx brings real-time assistance to mobile professionals – at work, on the road, at home and at play.

Part of the Motorola MOTOPro series of handsets featuring the Microsoft Windows Mobile software, the MPx delivers a radical new approach to mobile communications for the mobile professional. The dual-hinge device opens both lengthways as a terrific clamshell phone and in landscape mode as an exceptional email device with a wide screen and full QWERTY keyboard. The model MPx accomplishes this with a familiar, easy-to-navigate interface like the one you’re used to on your Windows office desktop.

The Motorola MPx replaces the multi-device syndrome by ingeniously blending the best of a mobile phone, personal data assistant (PDA) and email messenger in one easy-to-use compact device. By opening the device in landscape mode, Internet browsing, streaming video and access to corporate applications are all within easy reach using the Motorola MPx.

The tri-band GSM/GRPS Motorola device is a truly essential business tool, with advanced features such as built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and Infrared support for effortless data exchange. The MPx also takes advantage of a 2.8 inch, 16-bit color display to provide an impressive 320 x 240 pixels. This feature allows for utilization of a large base of existing and upcoming Pocket PC and Java applications, enabling users to maximize their mobile experience.

The device is built on the MOTOPro Innovation Platform, a feature rich software and hardware platform that leverages Motorola’s design and technologies, as well as the Microsoft Windows Mobile software. The Motorola MPx boasts up to 1GB of expandable memory, an integrated 1.3 mega pixel camera with flash, and Java technology. With the Windows Media Player, the Motorola MPx also provides users with essential entertainment options to balance out the busy workday. In a snap, executives on the road can take pictures using the MPx’s integrated camera with flash and send them home to family and friends. Powerful messaging capabilities and the large dual-hinge internal landscape and portrait display also make sending and receiving movie or video clips a breeze via e-mail, MMS, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth.
 
"Mobile email is the "hero" application for mobile professionals looking to stay in touch in real time. This revolutionary compact form factor combines powerful hardware and software enablers and Microsoft’s Windows Mobile software, to create a true mobile assistant – helping mobile professionals stay ahead of the curve," said Ron Garriques, senior vice president and general manager, personal communication sector, EMEA, Motorola Inc. "The MPx expands the MOTOPro portfolio, enabling businesses and mobile professionals to leverage the power of mobility and convergence."
