Motorola, and Google today announced a global alliance to enable users easy access to Google on Motorola handsets. Motorola will integrate a Google icon onto select devices so that users can connect directly to Google anytime, anywhere at the click of a button. These mass-market, Internet-optimized handsets will be distributed from early 2006 to select Motorola customers worldwide.

"Many of our customers have been asking for mobile devices integrated with their consumers' favorite online search services. By featuring Google on Motorola handsets for those customers, we are making it easier for consumers to connect to the information they need when they need it," said Scott Durchslag, Corporate Vice-President and General Manager of Global xProducts for Motorola's Mobile Device business. "Our relationship with Google provides an opportunity for us to offer a high quality mobile search experience -- one familiar to and loved by millions of users across the globe."

Motorola handsets with the Google icon are expected to be available to consumers starting in Q1 of 2006.
