Distinct phone slider design and compelling camera features lets customers slide, shoot and share images with those who matter most
LIBERTYVILLE, Ill. and BELLEVUE, Wash., March 21, 2007 // -- The stylish and uniquely crafted MOTORIZR Z3, the first GSM slider in the U.S., from Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT), is available beginning today exclusively from T-Mobile USA, Inc. With premium communications and multimedia features, and a vibrant pearl blue with soft-touch finish, the MOTORIZR Z3 is sure to impress.
Picture-perfect, spontaneous moments won't be missed or forgotten with the MOTORIZR in-hand. Featuring an integrated 2.0 megapixel camera with 8x zoom, high-intensity camera light, landscape view finder and dedicated external camera button, the phone gives people the experience and benefits of a functional digital camera, with the capability to shoot and share photos quickly.
To help people stick together, sharing pictures with those who matter most is simple using T-Mobile's My Album, a personal online album that stores pictures, video and voice messages for easy viewing and sharing. Users can easily access the My Album link built into the MOTORIZR, and quickly access their myFaves(SM) contacts to send fun picture messages, as well as video, text and instant messages(1).
"In keeping with Motorola's tradition of innovative design and cutting- edge technology, the new MOTORIZR Z3 is Motorola's first GSM slider form factor - allowing consumers another choice for mobile phones," said Jim Wicks, vice president, Consumer Design Experience, Motorola, Inc. "Combined with a myriad of features, the beautifully crafted MOTORIZR Z3 also delivers a dynamic imaging and personalization experience."
"T-Mobile's customers love communicating with their friends and families whenever the feeling hits," said Michael Gallelli, director of product marketing, T-Mobile USA. "With the MOTORIZR Z3, snapping and sharing photos of rich, memorable moments as they happen is almost like sharing those experiences in person."
Users also can rock to favorite tunes with a built-in music player that supports a variety of audio formats and stereo Bluetooth wireless technology for hands-free listening(2). Storage space for music, photos or files is expansive, using the microSD slot for up to 2GB of optional removable memory. The MOTORIZR Z3 is equipped with video capture and playback, quad-band technology and USB 2.0 connectivity for file transfers and data access.
