Media Alert - Motorola Canada offers hands-free solutions to Ontarians to
help comply with hands-free law effective February 1, 2010

TORONTO, Jan. 26 /CNW/ -

    
    What:  On February 1, 2010, Bill 118 - the Countering Distracted Driving
           Act, will be enforced in Ontario, prohibiting the use of hand-held
           wireless communication or electronic entertainment devices while
           driving. Drivers who would have previously received a warning from
           police are now subject to a fine if they are caught using a
           hand-held device. Ontarians who wish to continue making phone
           calls while in the car will need to ensure they are using a hands-
           free device, such as a Bluetooth(R) headset or in-car
           speakerphone.

    Who:   Motorola Canada representatives are available to speak about the
           range of hands-free options available to consumers, demonstrate
           each product and the benefits of each solution. Additionally,
           Motorola products are available for media to test-drive.

           Bluetooth(R) devices and offers one of the largest selections of
           easy-to-use hands-free Bluetooth solutions that will allow
           consumers to continue to use a mobile phone while in a car.

           -  Motorola Bluetooth headsets offer freedom at a variety of price
              points. Products such as the Motorola H790, H17, HX1 and H620
              enhance the mobile experience for drivers by keeping them in
              touch and entertained with the convenience of hands-free
              connectivity. Motorola offers innovative headsets that pair
