Motorola announced the MPx
Motorola announced the Motorola MPx during the 3GSM World Congress. Part of the Motorola MOTOPro series of handsets featuring Microsoft Windows Mobile software, the MPx delivers a new approach to communications for the mobile professional. The dual-hinge device opens both lengthways as a clamshell phone and in landscape mode as an exceptional email device with a wide screen and full QWERTY keyboard. The model MPx accomplishes this with a familiar, easy-to-navigate interface like the one you're used to on your Windows office desktop.

The company says the tri-band GSM/GRPS Motorola device is a essential business tool, with advanced features such as built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and Infrared support for effortless data exchange. The MPx also takes advantage of a 2.8 inch, 16-bit color display to provide an impressive 320 x 240 pixels. This feature allows for utilization of a large base of existing and upcoming Pocket PC and Java applications, enabling users to maximize their mobile experience.

The device is built on the MOTOPro Innovation Platform, a feature rich software and hardware platform that leverages Motorola's design and technologies, as well as the Microsoft Windows Mobile software. The Motorola MPx boasts up to 1GB of expandable memory, an integrated 1.3 mega pixel camera with flash, and Java technology. Powerful messaging capabilities and the large dual-hinge internal landscape and portrait display also make sending and receiving movie or video clips a breeze via e-mail, MMS, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth.
