Mobile Management Feature: Motorola Unveils MOTOROI Smartphone in Korea

By Marisa Torrieri, TMCnet Editor


Calling it the country’s “Android (News - Alert)-powered” smartphone, Motorola introduced “MOTOROI” to consumers in Korea today.
 
MOTOROI reportedly offers the ability to use multiple applications at the same time, from effortless pinch-and-zoom browsing to cinematic navigation through music, videos and maps of the world. 
 
“We are delighted to announce MOTOROI, the first Android-based phone, with SK Telecom (News - Alert) in Korea, a key partner in one of Motorola’s key markets in the world, ” said Sanjay Jha, co-chief executive officer of Motorola and chief executive officer of Motorola (News - Alert) Mobile Devices. “MOTOROI is a smartphone without compromise, delivering a wiser, richer web and messaging experience with the most delightful touch-interface you have ever experienced, all made possible through the combination of Motorola’s expertise in design, a truly differentiated Android experience, and the power of SK Telecom’s network.”
 
Designed to take full advantage of the power of Android 2.0, MOTOROI gives smartphone users a full touchscreen with a huge 3.7 inch, high-definition WVGA (480x854) display, making it easier than ever to view full-page Web sites, videos, games or photos. The display uses a powerful combination of Motorola’s touch-user interface and a capacitive touch sensor for smooth screen flipping and scrolling, and five main displays let the user customize MOTOROI with various widgets with more freedom than ever before.
 
As the number of smartphones with Web capabilities mounts, so does the number of smartphone users – in the home and enterprise.
 
For companies like Amtel (News - Alert), which makes telecom expense management software to help rein in costs and streamline operations, this is potentially good news.
 
In 2009, Amtel unveiled its latest “TIMS” platform, which encompasses tools for wireless procurement, invoice management and inventory management of telecommunications services for global organizations.
 
“Mobile apps on the smartphones are creating a new avenue to control mobile costs at enterprises, and our platform is well-positioned to help companies to sort out that expense,” Pankaj “PJ” Gupta, founder and president of Amtel, told TMCnet. “Our clients can segregate the costs for personal usage verses corporate usage by setting up mobile policies and accounting can bill back the end users for personal usages.”
