U.S.-based Motorola has hinted that its latest Fire smartphone, which resembles a Blackberry, will hit the UK shores in September.
The budget phone sports a stylish design and features a Qwerty keyboard, a 2.8in QVGA touchscreen and lots of social media apps. The Motorola Fire is powered by Android 2.3 Gingerbread and is equipped with Motorola’s Switch app that enables switching of modes between play and work. The gadget is expected to entice the tech-savvy British youth population. It is coming out simultaneously with Droid Bionic, another Motorola smartphone wonder which has already generated excitement online and offline.
Visible external features include a 3Mp rear camera, a microSD card slot and a WiFi. It has a quad-band Edge, a dual-band SDPA and a 1420mAh battery that can last for 30-hours 3G mode standby or talk time for eight hours. The difference between this device and RIM’s BlackBerry is the brand itself, Motorola has been doing well with its range of electronic and high-end devices. Other products coming out next month are iPhone 5 and HTC EVO 3D.
