    SCHAUMBURG, Ill., June 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- A leader in the
 innovation of nanotechnology for electronic devices, Motorola (NYSE:   MOT)
 has been recognized with a Nano 50(TM) award by Nanotech Briefs for its
 Nano Emissive Display (NED) technology. The Nano 50(TM) Awards recognize
 the top 50 technologies, products and innovators that have significantly
 impacted, or are expected to impact, the state of the art in
     "The winners of the Nano 50 awards are the best of the best -- the
 innovative people and technologies that will continue to move
 nanotechnology to key mainstream markets," said Linda L. Bell, publisher of
 Nanotech Briefs.
     Motorola Labs, the applied research arm of Motorola, Inc., pushed
 nanotechnology one step closer to the mainstream electronics market when it
 announced the creation of a 5-inch NED prototype in May 2005. The
 first-of-its-kind prototype was created through a proprietary method of
 growing Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) directly on glass to provide superior
 electron emissions that yield an energy-efficient, high-definition display.
 This breakthrough technology could be used to make large, flat panel
 displays with superior quality, longer lifetimes and significantly lower
 costs than current offerings.
     "As a company committed to technology innovation, Motorola is
 researching new and exciting ways to use nanoscale components to build
 unique electronic devices that will enhance everyday life and
 communication," said Dr. Vida Ilderem, Vice President, Embedded Systems,
 Motorola Labs. "NED has the potential to revolutionize the display
     Nanotech Briefs' Nano 50 award winners were selected by a panel of
 nanotechnology industry experts. This year's recipients will be honored at
 the Nano 50 Awards Dinner at the NASA Tech Briefs National Nano Engineering
 Conference in Boston, November 9 - 10, 2006.
     The Nano 50 award adds to a growing list of recognitions Motorola has
 received for its work in nanotechnology. In 2005, Motorola Labs' Dr. Jim
 Jaskie received the Scientific American 50 award for his leadership in
 developing practical nanotube technologies.
