Motorola Introduces New Business Two-Way Radio with Digital 2.4 GHz Cordless Phone Capability CLS1450c Provides Ability to Communicate with Other Business Two-Way Radios

And the Ability to Place and Receive Phone Calls in One Handset

    ATLANTA, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:   MOT), a
 global leader in wireless communications, today announced the Motorola
 CLS1450c Business Two-Way Radio with Digital 2.4 GHz Cordless Phone
 Capability. Designed to enable businesses to better manage both employees and
 customer needs, the CLS1450c is a simple, cost-effective, and versatile
 solution for today's fast-paced business environments.
     Seamlessly integrating a business two-way radio with digital 2.4 GHz
 cordless phone capability, the Motorola CLS1450c provides the ability to
 better fulfill customer requests. Easily switching back and forth between the
 integrated two-way radio and telephone functions provides a high level of
 communication versatility for fast-paced business environments. A perfect tool
 for managers who need to be mobile in a work environment, the CLS1450c lets
 managers take customer calls, while at the same time, alerting employees via
 the two-way radio function. Such rapid response capabilities ensure that model
 CLS1450c will be very much at home in any business environment.
     "At Motorola, we always look to respond to customer demand by providing
 products that manage as many needs as possible," said Motorola marketing
 communications manager, Rafael Rivera.  "We aim for flexibility, mobility, and
 simplicity, and the CLS1450c is an excellent example of Motorola's commitment
 to its customers. It's hard to believe so much capability can be packed into
 such a small form factor, but Motorola understands its customers and works
 hard to supply them with products that fit their needs."
     With today's fast-paced and demanding business environment it is important
 to run a tight ship. The CLS1450c not only helps cut operational costs by
 reducing the number of communications devices needed for any business
 environment, but it also boasts no monthly fees or service contracts (FCC
 license required. Monthly bill for telephone service still applies). With 56
 business exclusive frequencies, you can avoid hearing chatter from GMRS/FRS
 radios that feature frequencies intended for recreational use. Helping to
 eliminate wasted time and inefficient processes is simple with the one-to-one
 or group communication provided at the touch of a button. The expandable
 functionality allows up to four CLS1450c units to be designated to a single
 phone base (must be connected to an analog phone line).  An unlimited number
 of business two-way radios can be used to communicate with the CLS1450c (must
 be set to a common frequency and code). VibraCall(r) Alert and Advanced Voice
 Activation (VOX) (accessory required) add to the already impressive array of
 business tools to be found in the CLS1450c.
     Measuring only 5.4 inches tall by 2.1 inches wide and weighing less than
 seven ounces, the one-watt Motorola CLS1450c is lightweight but proves its
 power as the new utility tool for any retail environment. With a rechargeable
 Lithium Ion battery that gives up to 10 hours of battery life, the Motorola
 CLS1450c is more than capable of tackling a full eight-hour workday.  Both the
 two-way radio and cordless phone live up to Motorola standards -- the two-way
 radio range covers up to 200,000 square feet, 15 floors, and five miles, and
 the cordless phone has a range of up to 100,000 square feet around the phone
 base (range will vary based on terrain and conditions).
