Motorola Motoluxe Smartphone To Debut In the UK

Motorola will launch the Motoluxe in the UK towards the end of February according to a press release issued by the Google owned company.

The handset is squarely aimed at what the firm calls "style gurus" and "UK fashionistas", with keywords like ultra-vogue or rail-thin inserted to emphasise the market targeted by Motorola.

The hardware sadly, is deceptively mainstream; there's a single core ARM-based, TI OMAP processor clocked at 800MHz (the same as the two year old Motorola Flip), a 4-inch FWVGA TFT capacitive touchscreen with a Gorilla glass display, an eight-megapixel camera with LED flash, a front facing VGA camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and a 1400mAh battery.

The Motoluxe comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread as well as the Motoswitch user interface which appears to be a rebadged version of the Motoblur with a big difference.

The phone learns who you talk to and which apps you use the most and cleverly organise data on the phone around this.

A number of features have also been highlighted by Motorola including a Social Graph, an Activity Graph, Music Now and Smart Gallery. Note that the phone comes with a two year warranty.
