    SAN FRANCISCO, March 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Motorola, Inc.

 with a color display for iDEN(R) networks. The Motorola i95cl handset was
 unveiled at the 2002 JavaOne(SM) Developer Conference in San Francisco's
 Moscone Center (Motorola Booth #1728).
     This clam-shaped phone incorporates Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition
 (J2ME(TM)) technology, which allows users to customize their handsets with
 applications to meet their changing needs. It features a large, 120 x 160-
 pixel color display that can show up to 256 colors for Java applications. To
 accommodate compelling color applications such as games and streaming video,
 the phone offers expanded Java functionality. It contains expanded memory
 capabilities, enhanced T9(R) text input and Lightweight Windowing Toolkit
 (LWT) functionality.
     "The Motorola i95cl mobile phone offers developers even greater
 opportunities for creating Java technology-based applications with our J2ME
 development platform," said Peter Aloumanis, vice president and general
 manager, U.S. Markets Division, Motorola's iDEN(R) Subscriber Group. "The
 handset's color LCD allows users to take advantage of more robust Java
 applications, such as games, streaming video, maps, and graphics, providing a
 richer user experience."
     The i95cl handset allows users to manage their applications by adding,
 deleting or storing applications online. Pre-loaded applications include
 games, productivity tools and several selectable wallpaper patterns.*  The
 i95cl will also allow users to customize the handset by downloading additional
 applications and musical MIDI ring tones. The handset features a color icon-
 based menu for easy navigation and a choice of six changeable color palettes.
 Its Java applications are integrated into the user interface, allowing users
 to conveniently select applications from the main menu.
     The phone offers a hands-free speakerphone for conference calls, voice-
 activated dialing, and a voice recorder. The two-way radio function allows
 users to communicate instantly with one or hundreds of individuals at the
 touch of a button. The phone's rich polyphonic sound can replicate 16 voices
 or instruments simultaneously and support the sounds of 128 harmonic and 47
 percussion instruments.
     The Motorola i95cl handset has a cool silver finish with navy trim. It
 measures 1.26 x 1.9 x 3.5 inches (32 x 50 x 90 mm), has a 1.1 x 1.5 inch (29 x
 38 mm) color display, and weighs 5.46 ounces (155 grams) with the slim battery
 and 5.8 ounces (165 grams) with the standard battery.
