Also announced by Motorola before CES was the MOTOLUXE, a phone that appears to also target the developing markets except with some premium features. The phone has a sleek design, runs on Gingerbread and has an 8-megapixel camera, something you don’t expect for a phone targeting such markets.
Hardware-wise, the phone features a 4-inch display, 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM. On-board storage is 1GB, and it appears that it will not be expandable – meaning that you are stuck with a measly 1GB to store apps, data and music. Ouch.
MOTOLUXE’s camera also has autofocus with 4x zoom. In addition, it has a front-facing VGA camera and the standard 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi support. Also, apparently, it comes with a lanyard slot that lights up to notify you of a missed call, new text or email message. Essentially, it’s like the charm from HTC’s Rhyme.
