Motorola and Siemens have collaborated to develop the Siemens mainstream UMTS terminals using Motorola's i.300 Innovative Convergence 3G platform, a comprehensive silicon-to-software integrated UMTS solution, and the DragonBall MX microprocessor series.

The first device that Siemens intends to bring to market in 2002 will be based on the Motorola's A820, which will feature an array of enterprise communication and entertainment in a handheld, compact device. This terminal, which is based on technology from which the i.300 platform is being developed, combines high-speed voice, data and video capabilities such as MMS, Multi-call, camera, MP3 player, downloadable ring tones, games and Bluetooth wireless technology.

The first UMTS terminals are expected to be available in early 2004. To prepare Siemens' customers for adoption of this new technology, Motorola's PCS will provide Siemens with its first 3G terminals, specifically customized for Siemens, from fourth quarter 2002 into 2003.

"Our relationship with Siemens Mobile is powerful proof of Motorola's expertise in 3G technology, including integrated UMTS chipset technology and dual-mode UMTS terminals. It also confirms that our wireless platform strategy meets market expectations," said Edward Breen, president and CEO, Motorola.
