In the past 80-plus years, Motorola Mobility has celebrated many “world’s firsts.” Our radio equipment was responsible for the first words transmitted from the moon, in 1969. We launched the world’s first commercial mobile phone, the Motorola DynaTAC, in 1983. And now, inside the Dubai International Airport, Motorola has created what may be the world’s longest indoor advertisement. At 205.04 meters — virtually the entire length of the Terminal 1 corridor — the advert features illuminated panels that celebrate the story of Motorola’s rich history. It takes more than 5 minutes to pass it on the airport’s moving walkway, which hopefully will be enough to make an impact on (or exhaust) Guinness Book of World Records’ investigators. And if that doesn’t impress them, maybe MOTOROLA RAZR MAXX‘s 17.6-hour talk time will 1. That’s the longest of any smartphone on the market. And that’s a fact.
1 Comparison based on manufacturers published talk times as of 29 February 2012 for 3G smartphones with voice carried over a 3G network. RAZR MAXX talk time is up to 17.6 hours. Battery performance depends on network configuration, signal strength, operating temperature, features selected, and voice, data and other application usage patterns.
