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.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
