MOTOROLA AND PACIFIC BELL ANNOUNCE WIRELESS E-MAIL AGREEMENT THROUGH PACIFIC BELL CONNECTION

 WASHINGTON, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola (NYSE: MOT) today announced an agreement with Pacific Bell that allows portable computer users to receive wireless electronic mail from users of Pacific Bell(R) Connection, the company's electronic messaging service. The agreement enables a link between Connection users and Motorola's new wireless messaging network called EMBARC (Electronic Mail Broadcast to A Roaming Computer).
 As a result, Connection users can broadcast electronic mail to mobile associates in major cities across North America. Wireless messages and files can be sent simultaneously to reach thousands of people at the same time -- or to seek out one key recipient. EMBARC users can respond to the sender on Pacific Bell Connection over the public switched telephone network.
 Using Connection and EMBARC together means information can be delivered almost anywhere -- whether recipients are in an office building, at the airport, in a cab or just walking down the street, according to Steve Brendle, vice president and general manager of EMBARC Communication Services, a part of Motorola's Paging & Wireless Data Group.
 "The proliferation of notebook computers has prompted a new wave of computing," said Randall Edmiston, electronic messaging marketing manager of Pacific Bell Connection. "Today's mobile users expect network services, including electronic messaging, to reach out to their notebook computers while on the road.
 "By teaming up with Motorola's EMBARC system, we're providing these traveling professionals with the additional tools they need to stay in touch, not only with their home offices, but with all their business contacts."
 In addition to Pacific Bell's Connection service, Motorola also has agreements with other electronic mail service providers including AT&T Easy Link, GE Information Services, IBM Information Network and Sprint International.
