Motorola Motoluxe Announced
Want an upmarket device but can’t really afford to pay a fortune for it? Then you really should take a look at the phone that Motorola has just announced at CES 2012. It’s not exactly a brand-new device, but this is the first time it’s made an appearance outside Asian markets. While specific prices and launch dates are yet to be determined, we do know that it’ll be available in both Europe and the States. In Taiwan the phone is sold for about $350, which is a bit of a bargain for its specs.
RAZR. A secondary VGA camera is also present. The Motoluxe comes with a new user interface called Moto Switch, which looks quite different to MOTOBLUR. Underneath is the good-old Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and there aren’t any talks about Ice Cream Sandwich yet. The web browser supports both HTML5 and Flash, so this one should be a good choice for Internet addicts. The only weakness of the Motoluxe is its engine – it comes with a single-core processor by Qualcomm clocked at just 800 Mhz. RAM is 512 MB, while internal storage is apparently non-existent, so a memory card is a must. It’s clear that Motorola saved money on hardware, but hopefully the phone won’t be a turtle. Maybe Moto Switch is less demanding in terms of processing power. In any case, we shall see as more details pop up.
