Turn On, Tune In: Motorola launches stylish new value-priced clamshell design with integrated FM radio

United Arab Emirates: Saturday, September 09 - 2006 @ 15:12

The W220 incorporates an integrated FM radio, bringing a new level of style and functionality, not to mention cool sounds and vital information, to mobile consumers across Middle East and North Africa.

The W220 also continues Motorola’s pledge to meet the needs of consumers around the world by giving them the tools they need to stay connected and underscores the company’s vision of ‘connecting the next billion’ handset users.

“Customer choice and connectivity are Motorola’s deliverables to the regional market — consumers may be buying their very first handset or a even second one for family use – but everyone wants style and functionality. With the sleek MOTO W220, our inaugural value-priced clamshell handset with a built-in FM radio, we are setting a new milestone in connecting the next billion by ensuring there are striking yet affordable solutions available for everyone,”

said Patrick Mulligan, General Manager, Motorola Mobile Devices Business, Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan and Turkey.

The feature-rich W220 includes a built-in stereo FM radio offering entertainment on-the-go: browser, picture messaging and downloadable media capabilities, lantern technology, large font capability, alarm clock and up to 600 entry phone book capability. The sharp W220 also features an innovative external display with colour icons for instant updates on message, battery and phone call status.

“The regional tourism boom, families migrating to the Middle East, and travel for the annual Haj pilgrimage mean that a growing number of consumers want an affordable communications device to stay connected for personal and professional reasons – the Motorola W220 is an ideal handset to meet these disparate needs,” continued Mulligan.

The W220 measures in at 46 x 95 x 16.6mm and 93 grams. Its features also include large 128 x 128 vibrant colour screen and expanded battery life that accommodates up to 497 minutes of talk time and 293 hours stand-by.

The Motorola W220 is available now across the region.
