Previously, we reported that the Motorola MOTOLUXE will not be having a premiere launch in the US. We now have a target date to look out for its UK release.
One of the reasons why many are looking forward to the release of this device is because it is being targeted to the use of fashionistas who are budget conscious. With features such as a 4.0-inch display, 800MHz single-core CPU, 8MP camera with 0.3MP front-facing camera, 1GB internal storage, and 512MB RAM, we’re quite decided that this is the phone for those with a priceless taste.
On its press release, Motorola revealed that we should expect the ultra stylish phone to be available in the UK on the later part of this month. Unfortunately, they have not revealed pricing details of the MOTOLUXE.
Motorola Mobility’s MOTOLUXE™ Smartphone to Launch in the UK
Ultra-stylish, ultra-vogue smartphone from Motorola Mobility coming soon to UK fashionistas. At a price that looks good, too.
Feb. 08, 2012
LONDON – Feb. 8, 2012 – Calling all British style gurus! Get ready to flaunt your fashion flair with the ultra-vogue, rail-thin MOTOLUXE™ from Motorola Mobility UK Limited, expected to be available late February.
When it comes to panache, this Android™ 2.3 powered smartphone sets the bar high. With a 4-inch touchscreen that’s perfect for writing emails, surfing the Web and watching movies, you’ll always be connected, clued-up and entertained – whether at work, hanging out with friends or out on the town.
For photo buffs, an 8-megapixel autofocus camera with flash lets you shoot like a pro. You can even instantly share the pics with friends and family using the phone’s pre-loaded social networking apps.
But there is a reason this is called a smartphone! Incorporating Motorola’s MotoSwitch user interface, the MOTOLUXE learns who you talk to and which apps you use the most, and puts all that information front and center.
The Social Graph feature gives you easy and fast access to the people who really matter. It learns who’s most important to you and uses that information to populate the home screen. The more frequently you communicate with someone, the bigger their icon becomes. The Activity Graph focuses on your app habits; automatically changing to reflect the apps you use the most to provide customised menus.
With Music Now you can now play your favorite music while the Smart Gallery feature displays your favorite pictures as collections.
When you’re on the go, MOTOLUXE’s GPS technology will point you in the right direction and make sure you get to where the action is. If that isn’t enough, the phone is Bluetooth®1-enabled, as well as your portal into the Android Market™ where you’ll find thousands of games, apps, music, books and movies.
MOTOLUXE also sets itself apart with a lanyard slot that lights up. So you can see when you’ve missed a call, received a text or have an email waiting for you.
“By combining sleek style with Android brains, MOTOLUXE is ideal for people who want the latest technology in a sophisticated package,” said Marcus Frost, senior marketing director, Europe, Motorola Mobility. “Not only does this smartphone have a big screen and the latest, greatest entertainment tools, it’s affordable and won’t take a bite out of your budget.”
Price and Availabily
Motorola MOTOLUXE is expected to be available from authorized Motorola resellers from late-February.
