Motorola and SingTel launch Motorola DEXT
Singapore – 20 January 2010 – Motorola and SingTel have introduced in Singapore a unique mobile service platform with the launch of Motorola DEXT, Motorola’s first Android-powered device.
SingTel users will be the first in Asia to enjoy this breakthrough social mobile device, powered by the unique MOTOBLUR platform and complemented by SingTel’s mSocial service plan.
Developed by Motorola, the MOTOBLUR platform is one of the first solutions to synchronize contacts, posts, feeds, messages, e-mails, photos and more – from sources such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Gmail, work and personal email – and automatically deliver them all to the home screen.
SingTel will offer a newly created value-added service, mSocial, priced at S$5.35 per month for consumers to enjoy unlimited local mobile data using the MOTOBLUR platform. These include photo uploads, postings received and status updates on popular social networking sites, including Facebook and Twitter within the MOTOBLUR service platform.
mSocial includes 100MB of local data for all other internet surfing and email access. In addition, excess usage beyond 100MB is capped at S$30 per month, giving customers peace of mind when using Motorola DEXT. Also, as a launch promotion, mSocial is free to all customers who sign up for any 3G Flexi plans with the device.
SingTel customers can also access a suite of services to meet their mobile lifestyle needs. The exciting services include: i) MobileTV viewing for Channel 8 Primetime, Channel NewsAsia, Bloomberg and Football Frenzy ii) TrafficLIVE, an intelligent traffic planning service and iii) Android applications like SingTel’s first “BroadBand on Mobile” data usage application for Android devices. This application allows customers to keep track of their data usage and will be available free of charge soon.
