Motorola Signs Deal with Fergie, Unveils the Moto U9!

Well the Motorola U9 has been unveiled, and Motorola is going the extra mile to promote the phone, as they have signed Grammy award winner and multi platinum star Fergie to front the campaign for the Moto U9. Motorola's exclusive arrangement with Fergie will provide some markets exclusive content on the phone, promotional activities, and TV and print campaigns.

"Fergie is a GRAMMY Award-winning, multi-platinum superstar artist as well as a woman on the cutting edge of modern style. She is the perfect icon to help us communicate to consumers that style and music are integral to people as a way to express themselves - and that MOTO U9 embodies those qualities," said Joni Christensen, director of Global Music Marketing, Mobile Devices, Motorola.

So the way I see it, Motorola has created an upcoming super seller of a phone by signing one of the hottest artists out there, who is basically the queen (or dutchess) of endorsements, as she also has current deals with Candies, Kipling, Verizon, and others, all which have benefited greatly by using Fergie as their spokesperson. As for the phone, it is packed with features and a sleek design that will meet the technical demands as well. Here is a rundown of just some of the features for the Moto U9:
