    Motorola XT860 4G Announced

    TORONTO, July 14, 2011 /CNW/ - Setting a new standard for superphones, Motorola Mobility Canada Ltd. introduces the Android™-powered Motorola XT860 4G, available soon exclusively at Bell Mobility. The mobile powerhouse delivers uncompromising web, email and media content to Canadians and will be Bell's first superphone equipped with a full slide-out keyboard. The individuals using this device will become digital trailblazers, channeling the strengths of the device to power through their day.

    Among the many strengths of Motorola XT860 4G is the device's dual-core 1GHz processor, enabling users to simultaneously run apps, stream media, talk, email and surf the web, all without delay. A permanent number row on the top of the thin QWERTY keypad lets users type and text faster and more accurately without the need to always hit the 'ALT' button. And with a brilliant 4.0-inch qHD touchscreen display, Motorola XT860 showcases clearer photos, Web pages and video content.

    "The Motorola XT860 4G is the superphone for the superhuman task of balancing our personal and business lives," said David Petrou, sales director, Motorola Mobility Canada. "With a dual core processor, ultra-efficient 5th row QWERTY and powerful multimedia features, you're up to the challenge."

    "Bell has established itself as Canada's superphone destination and we're excited to add the Motorola XT860 4G - our first superphone with a full keyboard - to our already impressive portfolio of these powerful devices," said Tony Grewal, Director of Products at Bell Mobility. "On Canada's best network, the XT860 will offer a range of benefits for both business and consumer customers."

    Marvel at Mind-Blowing Media Content
    Motorola XT860 4G offers loads of features for extraordinary entertainment and functionality. Users have the benefit of Adobe Flash 10, allowing them to stream web content, videos and games on the most popular video player available today. The XT860 4G features a front-facing camera to video chat with friends, family and coworkers whether with Wi-Fi or a HSPA+ connection. All of this is delivered on a generous and brilliant 4.0-inch qHD display. Connect Motorola XT860 4G to other media devices - such as computers and televisions - with plug and play technology, via DLNA or HDMI, to enjoy multimedia on multiple screens with mirror mode.

    Motorola XT860 4G comes with Connected Music Player, a personal music dashboard powered by TuneWiki, allowing users to stream music from the Web, including podcasts, Web radio or other web-based streaming content. Also, while songs are playing, lyrics are streamed so users can sing along without missing a beat.

    Discover and Connect While On-the-Go
    With Motorola XT860 4G, individuals can stay informed of up-to-the-minute events, bargains, restaurants and other opportunities that are in their vicinity and match their preferences. Using Motorola's Social Location technology, local information is compiled from thousands of the Internet's most powerful websites, and then filtered based on context and past behavior before it is pushed out to the device enabling people to explore new shops and restaurants, find friends who are in the same area, and call for reservations or tickets with the click of a single button. Information filters are updated based on response, and relevant data is only sent to the user when he or she is looking for it, without being intrusive.

    Motorola XT860 4G leverages smart docking technology, offering tailored experiences based on home, office, bedroom or car dock settings. As users transition environments throughout the day, Motorola XT860 4G adapts its features automatically based on the dock it's connected to and pre-defined settings. For example, when a user connects his or her Motorola XT860 4G into a dock in the bedroom, the device automatically adjusts to pre-defined settings, such as a lower screen brightness, alarm clock and homescreen news updates. When moved from the bedroom dock to the car dock, Motorola XT860 4G can automatically display GPS navigation and stream a pre-selected morning radio program, giving users the experience they desire as they transition throughout the day.

    Built for Fun but Ready for Business
    Motorola XT860 4G empowers users to manage business instantly, intuitively and securely. Never be out of the know with work issues by keeping up with corporate email sent directly to the device. Users can keep track of their schedule through a full calendar and they have the ability to see if colleagues are busy and initiate new meetings. Users can download, review and edit documents, presentations or spreadsheets with a pre-loaded Quick Office. Also, with the built in Citrix Receiver application, business users benefit from simple, secure access to business applications, desktops, and IT services. The large 4.0-inch qHD display makes it easy to see the document with little scrolling or panning. Additionally, the five-row QWERTY keypad makes it easy to quickly type up responses to emails, and there's no need to wonder if the IT department will approve Motorola XT8604G, as the device is fully business ready with security, password protection and encryption requirements.
