The original RAZRWIRE
Motorola and Oakley are showcasing O ROKR at CES 2006 in Las Vegas. O ROKR delivers the design authenticity of an Oakley original and combines Oakley's High Definition Optics (HDO) with Motorola's leadership in designing Bluetooth-enabled companion products for the global wireless communications market. O ROKR enables hands-free mobile communications for compatible Bluetooth-enabled mobile handsets plus wireless music streaming via Bluetooth from a compatible music-optimized mobile handset or portable music player equipped with a separately available, add-on Bluetooth adapter.

"O ROKR builds on the success that we've had with RAZRWIRE(TM) -- the world's first eyewear to combine patented Oakley optics with Motorola's leadership in Bluetooth innovation," said Bruce Hawver, vice president and general manager, Companion Products Group, Motorola, Inc. "O ROKR takes wireless eyewear to a whole new level by enriching the mobile music experience for consumers -- whether they're using a mobile handset or their favorite portable music player."

O ROKR uses the Bluetooth Stereo Music Profile (A2DP), which enables music to stream wirelessly from compatible products to the eyewear. At the touch of a button, a user can play or pause music and answer an incoming call. From the Motorola mobile handset line-up, O ROKR works with the newly unveiled Motorola ROKR E2 and the Motorola E680i (available only in Asia).

The O ROKR will be available in the first half of this year.
