BASINGSTOKE, U.K. -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) is leading the Push-To-Talk over Cellular (PoC) market worldwide. With the most PoC commercial deployments and an expanding device portfolio, Motorola is enabling the delivery of one-touch communication to millions of GSM and CDMA cellular subscribers worldwide.

To-date, Motorola has delivered its IMS-based PoC solution to 41 separate wireless carriers in 32 countries and territories. The solution includes both handset and infrastructure elements, and is operating within both GSM and CDMA networks today. Motorola PoC customers include Telcel, VIVO, and Claro in Central and South America, Chunghwa Telecom in Taiwan, Turkcell in Turkey, Bouygues Telecom in France, Vodafone New Zealand, and Optimus and TMN in Portugal.

Motorola also continues to strengthen its market-defining portfolio of PoC-enabled devices, ranging from the world’s first GSM/GPRS handset, the V400p, to some of today’s truly iconic designs including the Motorola SLVR. This broad portfolio underscores Motorola’s ongoing commitment to offer multiple design options as part of an overall mission to deliver a world-class PoC device portfolio.

“We’re rapidly approaching a future where ‘push-to’ technology will enable operators to offer a whole host of new services to their subscribers,” said Margaret Rice-Jones, corporate vice president and region management, Motorola Networks EMEA. “And Motorola is the resource that will best deliver them. The number of new contracts awarded over the past year is testament to our leadership in PoC as well as our deep understanding of the market.”

“Later this year, we anticipate being first-to-market with a complete next generation ‘Push-to-View’ solution on GSM PoC handsets,” added Peter Neary, director, Motorola Mobile Devices. “This will once again reinforce Motorola’s innovative leadership position in the ‘push-to’ category.”
