Motorola gets fired up over a new phone

Soon-to-be-a-part-of-Google mobile phone company Motorola Mobility has confirmed the Motorola Fire Qwerty handset will be arriving in the UK, this September.

Motorola Mobility’s Fire was announced back in July this year, as a budget orientated mobile phone, with a full touchscreen and a Qwerty keyboard – running from the latest Android ‘Gingerbread’ 2.3 platform.

The device tips up with a 2.8-inch 240x320 capacitive touch display, with a 600MHz processor, a 3.2 megapixel camera and support for 32GB microSD cards.

This Fire handset is aimed at the youth market, as a fashionable phone with a sleek design and finish, with all the personalisation that the Google mobile OS affords – along with offering up a good combination of tools for emailing, texting and browsing the Web.

Motorola Fire also arrives with the Moto Switch user interface, which allows users to switch to a friends-centric mode when away from the office.

No prices have been unveiled as yet by Motorola Mobility to the Fire handset, only that the device will be arriving at the end of the September.

One Mobile Ring reported a few weeks back that on-line mobile phone retailer Clove Technology will be selling the Fire phone, SIM free and unlocked for £216.
