SANS - Survey on application security programs

Motorola Europe launched six new mobile handsets today, three of which will be generally available and the other three under exclusive contracts with either Vodafone Live, T-Mobile or Orange.

The Motorola E550All six are clamshell style phones, aimed squarely at the gaping hole in Nokia's portfolio. The phones also have a bundle of neat features including video capture and playback, MP3 players and Bluetooth.

Amer Husaini, a Motorola VP, said the company had proven itself as a branded services sales partner. Its next focus is to work with operators to drive customer migration to 3G.

The Motorola V550, available exclusively to Vodafone Live customers, is an update on the V525. The E550 is exclusive to T-Mobile, and the V545, is just for Orange subscribers. Motorola is pushing all these phones on their imagining and gaming capabilities, evidently hoping to make it onto a few Christmas wish lists.

The quad-band V547 is the business option of the six. It feature EDGE for high speed data exchange, has integrated Bluetooth, a speakerphone, conference calling and email support.

The remaining consumer offerings are the V620 and the V535. The V620, Motorola gushes, is "matt black and silver" and "will have everyone clamouring to touch it". Readers will have to judge how true this may be from a pic of the E550, above. ®
