RESTON, Va. and LIBERTYVILLE, Ill., April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  NII Holdings, Inc. [NASDAQ: NIHD], a provider of differentiated mobile communications services under the Nextel brand in Latin America, and Motorola Mobility, today announced the launch of the Motorola ATRIX HD, the most advanced handset in the companies' joint portfolio, as well as the launch of PRIP ®, Nextel's advanced Push-To-Talk (PTT) solution.

Nextel Mexico is the first market to launch the PRIP service, which offers instantaneous high performance communication for PTT users. PRIP, which was designed by Motorola, uses a software-based solution that is integrated with Nextel's wireless network and is accessed via an icon on the handset. The solution is preloaded with the Motorola ATRIX HD handset, and allows Nextel Mexico customers to connect with other PTT users via Nextel Mexico's next generation network, Wi-Fi or while roaming, anytime and in any place in the U.S. and around the world.  

"We are excited to launch the Motorola ATRIX HD handset and PRIP, the next step in the evolution of PTT communication, because it enables us to offer our Mexico customers a seamless, high performance PTT experience paired with a wide range of unique new capabilities and features," said Bob Ewald, vice president of product management of NII Holdings. "This not only represents a major milestone in our partnership with Motorola Mobility but also provides our customers with an innovative and efficient communication tool on a high tier handset with the Android Jelly Bean operating system," he added.

"PRIP breaks the barriers of communications, and it is exclusively preloaded with the Motorola ATRIX HD, the perfect solution for the perfect handset," said Greg Page, vice president and general manager, iDEN, Motorola Mobility. "Staying in touch with your contacts has never been so easy, quick and instantaneous. No matter how far away you are, you can stay close to your contacts with just with one touch anytime, anywhere."

The PRIP solution will interoperate with Nextel's other PTT services and will have the same International Direct Connect SM connections. PRIP gives customers access to the same international community they enjoy today.

"The best part of this solution is that users can connect instantly and quickly with anyone across the world, and it is ready to use as soon as users turn on their Motorola ATRIX HD handset," added Mr. Page.
