    Motorola partners with Corbis

    21 January 2003 -- PMN -- Motorola has entered into a partnership agreement with Corbis, the image library owned by Bill Gates. Corbis will provide Motorola with access to millions of digital stills and videos for use as part of its multimedia content offering for network operators.

    The service will be marketed under Motorola's Mobile Services Cafe brand and offered to operators with a number of models, including a fully hosted ASP solution. Users will be able to customise images and download them to their handsets as wallpapers or message content.

    "Multimedia Messaging Services are key to driving mobile data uptake, and downloadable content is an important element that will provide network operators with a unique way to differentiate their services while creating additional revenue streams," said Mike Bordelon, corporate vice president and general manager, Motorola Personal Communications Sector. "Teaming with Corbis lets us offer our customers vibrant content that adds value for the consumer while increasing average revenue per user."

    "Corbis is always seeking new and innovative channels for digital images because they not only offer our photographers and other image providers new sources of revenue, but they also help Corbis realise its vision of unleashing the power of human expression through pictures," said Mark Sherman, Corbis vice president for emerging markets and products. "So, Corbis is extremely pleased to work with Motorola to offer wireless carriers the best images and media content for their subscribers, and we look forward to rollout of this offering in Europe and elsewhere."
