Frequency lands direct Motorola distribution deal


Company to distribute manufacturer’s current and future accessories line, also gaining access to Motorola Mobility devices for resale in the B2B market

Frequency Telecom has won a deal to be appointed as a distributor of the Motorola Mobility range of mobile accessories.

Mobile News understands the Chessington-based company has gained direct access to Motorola Mobility’s complete range of current and future, traditional and new accessories to support the manufacturer’s upcoming converged computing devices, the XOOM Android tablet and Atrix handset, both due for release in the UK next quarter.

Frequency Telecom will have direct access to the XOOM and future such devices for resale in the B2B arena and joins the likes of fellow distributors 20:20 Mobile and Data Select in having direct distribution agreements with Motorola Mobility.

Both Frequency Telecom and Motorola Mobility were unavailable for comment.

The deal joins recent distribution agreements Frequency has struck. Last month, Frequency was appointed by Swedish accessories manufacturer Jays to distribute its range of earphones, tasked with developing new vertical markets for it in the UK and European territories. The company has secured supply to several retailers.

That deal followed recent signings with smartphone protective case manufacturer Case-mate and rugged mobile phone case manufacturer OtterBox. Frequency Telecom has a European exclusive on the Case-mate range and is one of a number of authorised distributors for Otterbox.

Meanwhile, Research in Motion (RIM) has signed up Case-mate recently to its ‘Built for BlackBerry’ partnership programme.

Case-mate cases made for BlackBerry devices under this programme will be affixed with the Built for BlackBerry logo, which guarantees customers the case was built, tested and designed specifically for BlackBerry.
