Motorola, Extended Systems in Bluetooth Tie-up

SAN FRANCISCO (05/09/2000) - Motorola Inc. and Extended Systems Inc., a provider of data management and short-range wireless communications software, have entered into a partnership to implement Bluetooth technology in Motorola's wireless products, the companies announced today.

Extended Systems will provide Motorola with a software kit which enables Bluetooth wireless file exchange and synchronization so that users can move and update data between wireless devices, the companies said in a statement issued today. Bluetooth, a short-range wireless specification, links up mobile computers, mobile phones and other portable devices.

Motorola and Extended Systems have two prior agreements that have led to the deployment of short-range wireless connectivity across Motorola's communications product line. The resultant products are Motorola's L7089 tri-band GSM (global system for mobile communications) cellular phone and Motorola's Timeport P935 personal interactive communicator for mobile business users.
