Motorola, Inc. and Skype Technologies S.A. will work together on a co-marketing collaboration that will provide greater connectivity options and access for Skype’s more than 25 million registered worldwide users.
The alliance will explore opportunities across both companies, leveraging Motorola’s strength in seamless mobility, advanced technologies, mobile devices and accessories and Skype’s rapidly-growing global user base and rich voice and messaging communication tools.
The initial focus of the collaboration will be on co-marketing of new optimized Motorola ‘Skype Ready’ companion products, such as Bluetooth headsets, dongles, and speakerphones, as well as delivery of the Skype Internet Telephony experience on select Motorola mobile devices.
Motorola ‘Skype Ready’ companion products are expected to be available in the first half of 2005.
