Stylish Motorola I836; 'Brains and Beauty' Join Together In a Full-Featured Phone

Italian-designed handset combines advanced technology with sleek design

Nextel Communications Inc. and Motorola Inc. today announced the Motorola i836, a sleek and stylish wireless phone that delivers the advanced features Nextel customers have come to expect, including Nextel’s new Group ConnectSM service. With a metallic graphite-colored finish and lines inspired by an Italian sports car, the Motorola i836 looks as good as it performs.

The Motorola i836 offers users four distinct ways to stay connected:

-- Digital cellular phone service
-- Nextel’s Direct Connect, the nationwide and country-to-country instant walkie-talkie service that connects users in under a second
-- Group Connect, Nextel’s new service which allows users to communicate with up to 20 other Nextel users nationwide at the touch of a button, and to set it all up quickly and easily from their handset
-- Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) which allows users to send text, images and audio together, allowing a high level of expression and personalization1

“The i836 offers Nextel customers instant connectivity and reliability in a beautiful, well-designed package,” said Blair Kutrow, Nextel’s vice president of Product Management. “The dynamic features of the i836, including Group Connect, make it a must-have tool for managing both business and personal needs.”

“The Motorola i836 handset represents the latest evolution of design in Motorola’s iDEN product portfolio,” said Rey More’, senior vice president and general manager, Motorola’s iDEN Devices. “Its elegant graphite color and stylish design appeal to those who desire the latest in innovative technology and distinctive style.”

The Motorola i836 uses Java technology, allowing users to download and run applications to meet their business and personal needs, as well as global positioning satellite (GPS) technology, which lets users access location-based services such as turn-by-turn driving directions1. The phone also offers a variety of personalization options, including user-assignable ring tones, wallpaper designs, and navigation shortcuts.

The i836 measures 3.4” x 1.9” x 0.94” and weighs approximately four ounces. It is currently available through all Nextel distribution channels, including retail stores, at a price of $199.99, with a two-year service agreement, new activation and credit approval. Taxes, fees, early termination fee and other charges apply.
