Motorola Expands Consumer Choices With Four Bright New Colors
LIBERTYVILLE, Ill., March 15 -- Continuing to bring vibrant color to consumers everywhere, Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT), a global leader in wireless communications, is adding four beautiful shades to the smooth, pure lines of the iconic PEBL, showcasing the driving importance of color inspiration in the mobile space.
Offered in green, pink, blue and orange, the popular PEBL handset now lets consumers use colors to express personal style just in time for summer. A next step in the continuing design revolution, Motorola's innovative use of color, finishes and materials on its iconic products enhance breakthrough handset designs by adding different personalities and energy to the outward appearance.
"We've gone from pink to "whoa" - leveraging our leadership in color and design to make the PEBL expressive and refreshing. This is a product you choose because you want it, not because you need it," said Jim Wicks, Vice President and Director, Consumer Experience Design, Motorola. "Combining a rich experience in technology with the value of self expression, the Motorola PEBL in living color is a break from the traditional and makes a deeper connection between consumer and mobile device - it allows you to directly mix and match your mobile phone style."
Never compromising good looks for features, the new bright and bold PEBL phones boast hi-tech capabilities and a unique design that features a remarkably effortless one-handed opening hinge mechanism. With video capture and playback you can document the world around you - just shoot and send experiences as they happen to family and friends via Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS)*.
The four fun mobiles also come equipped with Bluetooth® wireless technology and independent speech recognition for true hands-free calling and its quad band antenna lets you show your inner color wherever your travels may take you.
Pricing and Availability
The color PEBL phones are expected to be available in the first half of 2006. Specific details will be provided upon consumer availability.
