Motorola Inc. has unveiled its new MOTOMUSIC Experience at the 2007 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). MOTOMUSIC is a platform that features optimized music handsets, accessories, content and alliances. Three new devices—the MOTORIZR Z6, MOTOMING with EDGE, Bluetooth Active Headphones S9—and alliances with Warner Music Group and Microsoft round out the current offerings.
The Linux-based MOTORIZR Z6 slider is compatible with Microsoft Windows Media Player subscription stores. It’s easy to take music on the go—simply plug in and sync music. Synchronize individual songs or full playlists in seconds with high speed USB 2.0. Up to 2GB of removable microSD memory allows users to store all of their favorite songs. Dedicated music keys make accessing and managing your library a cinch. Even listen wirelessly with Bluetooth Stereo technology.
MOTOMING with EDGE is a compact Linux-based device and entertainment center. With the MOTOMING phone’s large transparent window, RealPlayer media player with multiple audio file support, FM radio, unique “play while closed” capability, stereo Bluetooth wireless technology and up to 1GB of optional removable microSD memory—music lovers can get the music they want when they want it.
One of the first mobile products expected to be offered as part of the Warner Music Group and Motorola alliance is the MOTO Experience Pack. The MOTO Experience Pack is a single file downloaded to the mobile device that contains several-music based products creating a feature-rich multimedia artist experience on the handset.
Finally, Motorola’s Bluetooth Active Headphones S9 is barely noticeable with a behind-the-head design and a weight of barely one ounce. Aside from playing music, it also mutes and pauses it—whenever calls come in.
