Nextel and Motorola Launch First Java Technology-Enabled Phone with Color Display in the U. S.

(July 2, 2002) - Nextel Communications Inc. and Motorola, Inc. have teamed up to add color to the mobile phone user's life with the first color display, JavaTM technology-enabled phone in the U.S.- the Motorola i95cl, available now from Nextel. The handset's large color screen, maximized memory, faster processor, and improved network connectivity allow Nextel customers to take advantage of robust Java applications including maps, animation, games, and graphics.

The Motorola i95cl features a large high-contrast screen with a color display, backlighting and customizable color palettes. It allows users to personalize the phone to meet their individual needs by downloading applications - from business productivity tools to games. The Java application environment is ideal for 256-color, PC-type business applications and can support fully animated 3D wireless gaming engines. Ten pre-loaded musical files and nine selectable ring styles allow users to personalize the handset with rich polyphonic sound. A color, animated icon-based menu allows easy navigation of the phone's many features.

"Nextel's executive, professional, and high-end consumer customers will find that the Motorola i95cl allows them to take Java applications to the next level," said Blair Kutrow, Nextel vice president of product management. "The large color display makes applications more appealing and easier to read - especially text messages, e-mail, Web content and date book entries - all critical to customers who use their Nextel phones as a mobile extension of their desktop computers."

"Motorola is pleased to be the first manufacturer to deliver a Java technology-enabled phone with a color display to the North American market," said Peter Aloumanis, vice president and general manager, U.S. Markets Division, Motorola's iDEN® Subscriber Group. "The Motorola i95cl phone allows users to do more - whether that means downloading more applications, musical ring tones, or running more complex games."

Pre-installed Java applications include the games EA SPORTSTM PGA TOUR® Golf provided by JAMDAT Mobile Inc. and MotoGPTM from THQ, as well as a calculator tool, expense pad, and several wallpaper patterns. Nextel Wireless Web customers can download additional applications and musical MIDI ring tones at www.nextel.com/idenupdate.

This feature-rich handset offers a built-in speakerphone, voice-activated dialing, and a voice recorder. The long-range digital walkie-talkie function, known as Nextel Direct Connect®, allows users to communicate instantly with one or up to 100 individuals. The flip phone's exterior display allows access to the Caller ID, date and time, and VibraCall® alert without opening the handset, and the smart button enables multiple tasks to be performed with a single keystroke.

You'll find more information at www.nextel.com, or by calling 1-800-NEXTEL9.
