Atlanta, GA and Chicago, IL–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–May 10, 2006–Still searching for that perfect gift for mom? Cingular Wireless and Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) have two great gift ideas that are sure to have mom tickled pink this Mother’s Day. The first is the new Cingular exclusive Motorola Pink SLVR(TM); the second is the new Motorola H500 Pink Bluetooth Headset. Both are fashionably chic in bubblegum pink and make a great gift for mom or any pink-loving Cingular Wireless customer.
Motorola Pink SLVR
Like its predecessor, the Motorola SLVR in Black, the Motorola Pink SLVR is less than half an inch thick and weighs only 3.5 ounces. And while this slender device looks pretty, it still packs a powerful punch. Not only does the boost of color add a kick to the sleek metal housing of the Motorola SLVR, but with its vivid display, precision cut keypad, Bluetooth connectivity and impressive set of multimedia features, including VGA camera, video capture and playback, and 512 megabytes of expandable memory, Cingular customers can easily stay connected to the people, music and content they love while still looking stylish.
Designed to maximize entertainment and customization options, the Motorola Pink SLVR makes it easy to access Cingular’s hottest downloadable content including ringtones, games, graphics and more.* Additionally, Motorola Pink SLVR delivers the iTunes functionality music lovers crave, offering the ability to carry up to 7 hours of music or 100 of their favorite songs right on their mobile.**
“The Motorola Pink SLVR is an attractive update to our slimmest device,” said Jim Wicks, vice president and director, CXD, Motorola, Inc. “Delivering an ultra-thin, high-style mobile with a compelling feature set, this handset is the perfect accessory for when you refuse to compromise on style or functionality.”
Motorola H500 Pink
Also now available at Cingular is the Motorola H500 Pink Bluetooth Headset, a perfect match – in both color and functionality – to the Motorola Pink SLVR. Juggling home, work and play often leaves consumers, especially moms, with their hands full. The Motorola H500 Pink, when paired with a Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, like the Motorola Pink SLVR, helps ensure hassle-proof, hands free communication. ***
The new H500 Pink Bluetooth Headset is less than 17 grams, one of the lightest headsets in the industry. It features up to eight hours of talk time or 200 hours of standby time, allowing users to connect up to 30 feet away from their mobile phone. The headset also has an omni-directional microphone to clearly pick up the user’s voice.
“Cingular is committed to offering handsets and accessories that speak to our customers varied wireless needs,” said Michelle Freeman, executive director, product management, Cingular Wireless. “Both the Motorola Pink SLVR and the H500 Pink Bluetooth Headset offer a fashionable and colorful wireless alternative to their predecessors without sacrificing performance.”
