November 20, 2009, Newsletter Issue #228: What Is MOTOMAGX?

Tip of the Week

Motorola has released several new cell phones using a Linux-based platform known as MOTOMAGX. What does that mean to you as a cell phone user? Like computers, cell phones need an operating system to manage applications.

Motorola cell phones using MOTOMAGX can use a variety of third party applications such as Google Local for Mobile. This feature was created by Google, not by a cell phone manufacturer, but if loaded onto your Motorola cellular phone you get access to Google's database of maps, handy for road trips and sightseeing.

Another third party application is Opera Mini, a free web browser made just for cell phones. Many cell phone manufacturers prohibit third party applications from being used on their cell phones; Motorola cell phones with MOTOMGX offer many new options savvy cell phone owners have been waiting for.
