MOTOROLA CELLULAR SUBSCRIBER GROUP'S CONSUMER PRODUCTS DIVISION INTRODUCES FULL LINE OF CELLULAR AND CORDLESS PHONE PRODUCTS AT CES SHOW

 LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The latest offerings in both cellular and cordless telephone technologies from the Motorola Cellular Subscriber Group's Consumer Products Division made their debut today at the 1993 Consumer Electronics Show. Each of these new products represent the latest in Motorola's consumer friendly phone innovations manufactured specifically for the retail market.
 Introduced were the slim 7.6 ounce Platinum Series pocket phone with nickel metal hydride batteries; the newly configured compact Portfolio cellular transportable phone; four new versions of the Secure Clear(TM) cordless telephones (models 50, 600, 700 and 825); alkaline battery power capabilities for cellular pocket phones; and the availability of four new neon colored cellular and cordless telephone models.
 "Motorola is pleased to introduce a full range of new phones and complementary technologies at this year's CES Show," said Robert N. Weisshappel, senior vice president and general manager of Motorola's Cellular Subscriber Group. "Our commitment to providing the retail marketplace with leading edge products continues with today's full slate of introductions. I can't think of a more appropriate setting than the Consumer Electronics Show -- the largest retail trade show in the world -- to make such announcements."
 The division's cellular offerings are just as exciting starting with a new, slim 7.6 ounce Platinum series pocket phone. At last year's CES Show in Las Vegas, the division's pocket phone was first introduced at 9.6 ounces. The decrease in weight responds to a desire by consumers for lightweight, fully featured and convenient pocket phones. Also, two new batteries are offered for use on the pocket phone -- nickel metal hydride and alkaline batteries. Nickel metal hydride batteries offer increased talk times over nickel cadmium batteries while alkaline batteries provide a quick and easy solution to low battery charge situations.
 The Portfolio style transportable phone is equipped with a built-in battery charging capability, signal strength meter, automatic hands free, full three watts of power and "get started" user video. The new compact design makes for ease of use for those who prefer a cellular phone with three watts of power.
 The new cordless phones introduced offer features such as a model with a fully digital answering machine eliminating the need for cassettes; a model with two handsets, that, in combination with the speakerphone, becomes three ways in which to make and receive a call; a model with capabilities for two line, four party conferencing; and a new five channel model addition to the Secure Clear phone family.
 Last year at the Winter CES Show, Motorola introduced its cordless telephones -- the Secure Clear series. The phones were initially sold exclusively at Sears Office Center Stores in the Chicagoland area. Plans for 1993 call for broad di?bution of the phones at a variety of additional retail 1993 call for broad distribution of the phones at a variety of additional retail outlets. These products were unique for two reasons. First, the phones incorporated a technology called Secure Clear, which protects against eavesdroppers using another cordless telephone, scanner or baby monitor to listen into private conversations. Second, these new cordless phones were the first products introduced by the group's newly formed Consumer Products Division. The division was created to exclusively serve the competitive retail market for both cellular and cordless phone products.
 The Consumer Products Division manufactures a full range of consumer friendly products designed with features to complement everyday needs. From the 7.6 ounce cellular Pocket Phone to the four new models of the Secure Clear cordless telephones, Motorola has a phone certain to meet a variety of consumer requirements. Both the cellular and cordless telephone products are available for purchase from select retail outlets across the United States and Canada.
