January 5, 2009

DALLAS and LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — CES — Today, AT&T
Mobility and Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) unveiled Motorola Tundra(TM) VA76r, a
rugged 3G clamshell device with a tough exterior that can withstand harsh
environments. Perfect for those who need a durable mobile phone such as
teenagers, outdoor enthusiasts and contractors, Tundra combines uncompromised
call quality, optional workforce management tools, navigation capabilities,
access to the Web on the nation’s fastest 3G network and AT&T Mobility’s Push
To Talk (PTT)(1) service. Available Jan. 13, enterprise and consumer customers
can learn more about Tundra at http://www.att.com/mototundra.

Use It

Versatile and durable, Tundra is designed to withstand the most strenuous
conditions, meeting U.S. 810F Military Specifications (MIL) for drop, dust,
vibration, humidity, severe temperatures and rain.

“On the surface, Tundra looks like a nearly indestructible phone for
contractors, landscapers and other tough work environments,” said Jeff
, senior vice president of Devices for AT&T Mobility. “But it’s also an
attractive phone for a wide variety of consumers who are rough on their
phones. Tundra answers that call.”

“Motorola has a long heritage in developing rugged devices that stand up
to the wear and tear of work and recreation while providing one-touch
connectivity to the people and information that matter most,” said Jeff
, vice president of sales, Motorola Mobile Devices. “Today, we’re
pleased to offer AT&T customers the Motorola Tundra VA76r, with the
functionality they need, such as navigation services and great sound quality,
on the network they want.”

Hear It

Engage in crisp, clear conversations on Motorola Tundra even in harsh
environments with Motorola’s CrystalTalk(TM) Plus with dual microphone
technology or immediately connect to a single person or an entire team with
the touch of a button using PTT technology. Tundra provides exceptional
usability with unique features designed for workforce management, such as
voice activation, phone book locking for call restrictions, a rugged antenna
and keys that can be easily pressed while wearing gloves. AT&T Navigator(1)
provides turn-by-turn directions to new locations and is available with a 30-
day free trial.

While Tundra is a great mobile phone for rugged environments, using PTT
and finding your way with AT&T Navigator, it can do even more with text
messaging, e-mail and Web browsing(1) for information, news and video, all
available at high speeds with 3G connectivity. The feature-rich phone also
offers access to AT&T Music(1) and a 2.0 megapixel camera to snap and share
still images and video. Tundra also has 100 MB of available memory(2) and up
to 4GB of optional removable memory, and it can be paired with a host of
compatible Bluetooth(R)-enabled accessories(3).

Track It

Delivering more than just rugged looks and durability, Tundra features
easy access to AT&T Navigator and enables advanced location and optional add-
on enterprise tracking services such as TeleNav Track(TM) and Xora(TM) Mobile
Workforce Management tools to help users find their way — and their teams –
more efficiently to help increase productivity.

TeleNav Track is a downloadable mobile business application that provides
organizations in transportation, field services, emergency response, shipping
and delivery, and utility services with a cost-effective solution for managing
their mobile workforce and addressing critical business needs. TeleNav Track
features include GPS-enabled tracking, turn-by-turn navigation, individual and
team timecards, job dispatching, customizable wireless forms, bar code
scanning, image capture and signature capture.

Tundra can also be paired with Xora GPS TimeTrack(R) for AT&T, a Web-based
solution offered by AT&T Mobility that helps companies more efficiently manage
their mobile workers. With Xora, companies can track the location and
activities of their workers in real-time, as well as use the Tundra as a
tamper-proof time clock — thereby automating the payroll process. Xora has
helped thousands of companies realize higher productivity and reduced costs –
especially those related to overtime and fuel.

Plus, the Motorola Tundra has a multi-tasking operating system, allowing
more than one application to run at a time. AT&T’s network also allows for
simultaneous voice and data use, so go ahead, answer the phone — TeleNav
Track, Xora or other applications will not be interrupted and will continue to
run seamlessly in the background.

Additionally, Tundra allows workforce managers to lock the address book of
the device, ensuring investments in your mobile workforce are 100 percent
devoted to work.
