Mobile Experiences Take Centre Stage on Motorola's New MOTO Z10 Mobile Device

May 1, 2008

Applications and content from Motorola ecosystem partners help create the most compelling mobile experience for MOTO Z10 users

Basingstoke, UK - May 1, 2008

Motorola, Inc. today announced an array of applications from ecosystem partners available now on the MOTO Z10 mobile device, taking the mobile experience for consumers to a whole new level.

MOTO Z10 is a 3G device based on the Symbian OS and UIQ platform that offers a complete, pocket-sized, mobile film studio in a unique ergonomic kick slider design. Leveraging the strength and momentum of Motorola's developer ecosystem, the MOTO Z10 comes pre-loaded with a selection of software, content and applications which further enhance its capabilities - from displaying full feature films to capturing, editing and sharing high-quality video clips.

In addition to the applications pre-loaded to the MOTO Z10 device, hundreds of applications and content titles have been developed and made available by the broader Symbian and UIQ development community for consumers to discover. The MOTO Z8, another Motorola kick slider device offering a mobile multimedia experience, has also seen great success with over 1000 applications and content titles developed for it since launch last year - with many of these applications also available for use on the MOTO Z10.

"Increasingly, consumers expect that their mobile device will do more than make a phone call or send a text message - it must also support features and applications that complement their interests and lifestyle," said Christy Wyatt, vice president, software platforms & ecosystem, Motorola. "By leveraging the rich multimedia foundation available in the Symbian platform and the extensive programs and services available though our MOTODEV Developer program, developers are able to enrich and extend Motorola products such as the MOTO Z8 and Z10 to create a unique, personalized mobile experience for our users."

In cooperation with its ecosystem allies, Motorola offers the following mobile experiences to consumers on the MOTO Z10 device:
