PRIP is now available for download from Google Play, providing users in the U.S. with instant PTT connections to NII's 11 million subscribers in Mexico, Brazil and across Latin America as well as other PRIP users in the U.S. Compatible with more than 95 percent of Android smartphones on the market, PRIP offers fast and immediate connections allowing users to communicate from anywhere in the world with a wireless or Wi-Fi connection.

"After the successful launch of PRIP in Mexico in April, we are pleased to roll out this service to users in the U.S.," said Greg Santoro, executive vice president, chief strategy and marketing officer for NII Holdings. "With PRIP, NII and Motorola Mobility are expanding the ecosystem of PTT users and providing those affected by the recent iDEN ® shutdown in the U.S. with an affordable and instant PTT alternative to stay in contact with their business colleagues, friends, family and with our 11 million subscribers in Mexico, Brazil and our other markets in Latin America."

Built upon Motorola Mobility's Push-to-Talk technology, the gold standard for PTT services, PRIP works on any wireless carrier network and Wi-Fi. The application is currently available for Android devices with the Gingerbread version (Android 2.3) or later, and is expected to be available on the iPhone in the coming weeks.
