After a heap of Motorola rumors that have been spreading online like wildfire and after a lot of debate about the mishaps of their Mobile division, the US-based company is finally announcing two new GSM handsets.
The Z9 slider has quad-band GSM support and dual-band UMTS support (HSDPA 3.6 Mbps). Behind the fashionable glossy red surface you might also find stereo Bluetooth, a microSD memory card slot (up to 8GB cards), and a 2 megapixel snapper.
The Motorola Z9 will also make use of the proprietary AT&T GPS Navigator service thanks to the built-in GPS receiver.
The Motorola M990 Smart Rider In-Vehicle Phone certainly won’t grab first place at a beauty contest, but it features a built-in GPS receiver and interactive voice activation.
The Motorola M990 Smart Rider phone has a 2.8-inch display that is used for turn-by-turn navigation, voice-guided driving instructions, real-time traffic reports and automatic re-routing.
But it’s a GSM phone too, so you can make and receive calls wirelessly with it thanks to Bluetooth technology.
The Motorola M990 Smart Rider phone will be available in June 2008.
