Motorola Fire is a Low-End Android Messenger; Headed To Germany This September

Motorola has released a new mid-range budget oriented Android smartphone, the Fire. This fiery handset from Motorola sports a 2.8-inch screen with QVGA (240×320) resolution. The handset has a candy-bar form factor with a four-row QWERTY keyboard up front as well.

Other key features of the Fire include Wi-Fi b/g/n, A-GPS, microSD card slot, a LED for notifications, FM radio with RDS and a 3.5mm audio jack. The usual array of sensors like Accelermeter, Ambient light sensor and proximity sensor etc. are also on-board. At the back of the handset is a 3MP fixed-focus camera.

The Fire also comes with a new version of Moto’s Switch UI, which seamlessly allows switching between friends-centric and work-centric mode. Even though the Fire is a budget-oriented handset, it runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

The handset is powered by a 1420mAh battery, which is capable of providing a standby time of 30 days or eight hours of talk-time.

The Motorola Fire will hit the retail stores in Germany sometime in September. The handset will cost 189 euro, inclusive of taxes and excluding any contract.
