Goodbye wires, HelloMOTO!

Motorola unleashes the ultimate wireless music device in association with ARIA


Motorola and the Australian Recording Industry Association join forces to launch a limited edition handset that will offer a musically enriched experience ensuring your music is number one.

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – 20 August 2007 – Motorola Australia Pty Ltd today announced the launch of the MOTOROKR™ Z6 DUO ARIA Edition handset, the first in a range of new music handsets to be released exclusively in Australia. The new handset will allow direct access to the Motorola ARIA Chart from your mobile phone, and will come bundled with a bonus content card and the brand new wireless MOTOROKR S9 Bluetooth stereo headphones. The MOTOROKR™ Z6 DUO ARIA Edition handset is available exclusively in Crazy John’s stores.

The MOTOROKR™ Z6 DUO ARIA Edition handset will feature a new music button on the main menu, allowing direct access to the Motorola ARIA Chart from your mobile phone at all times, wherever you are. This means you are always only one click away from your favourite ringtones. The handset will also give you access to a Motorola Artist of the Month page with exclusive content and competitions, plus it has a built in digital music player.

Say goodbye to wires as the MOTOROKR S9 Bluetooth stereo headphones offer a totally wireless music experience. You can listen to your music hands-free and wire-free by connecting the S9 with the Bluetooth stereo-enabled MOTOROKR™ Z6 DUO ARIA Edition handset. You’ll never miss a call as the headphones pause or mute out music when calls come in. The stylish, ultra lightweight and discreet design means you’ll look good too!


“This exciting new handset marks a new generation of music technology in Australia. We are thrilled to be deepening our relationship with ARIA, integrating our ARIA Chart sponsorship and offering direct access to the Motorola ARIA Chart, through a fantastic MOTOROKR product, the Z6. This new handset, along with the Motorola Artist of the Month program and our ongoing commitments to the local music industry, pay tribute to the fact that Motorola continues to support the Australian music industry,” Stephen Amiet, Marketing Manager, Motorola Australia.

To celebrate the release of this milestone product, Motorola and ARIA are hosting an exclusive launch event at Sydney’s Museum of Contemporary Arts on 22nd August. Guests will hear key speeches from Stephen Peach (CEO, ARIA), Denis Handlin AM (ARIA Chairman & Chairman & CEO, SONY BMG Music Entertainment Australia & New Zealand) and Andrew Volard (Managing Director, Motorola Australia Pty Ltd), plus a live acoustic ‘wireless’ performance by the ‘unique theatrical musicality’ of newcomer Kate Miller-Heidke.

“The continued and committed support from Motorola is taking the Motorola ARIA Charts into the hearts and minds of people across Australia. We are delighted to be involved with the launch of this handset, which will literally put the charts right into people’s hands. This is the future and we are proud to be leading the way with Motorola,” Stephen Peach, ARIA CEO

“The ARIA and Motorola partnership on the ARIA Charts and the Motorola Artist of the Month music events has been a striking success. With mobile phones fast becoming the music device of choice, we are very proud that ARIA is able to partner with Motorola to produce such a unique offering to consumers.  Our congratulations go to Motorola’s Andrew Volard and his team for taking this new initiative which once again highlights Motorola’s great focus on music.”   Denis Handlin AM, ARIA Chairman & Chairman & CEO, SONY BMG Music Entertainment Australia & New Zealand
