Motorola XT531 Fire XT (Spice XT) will bring Android Gingerbread on the cheap
Not long after announcing the XT316, Motorola has now unveiled yet another affordable Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone: the Motorola XT531.
Unlike the XT316, the XT531 doesn’t have a hardware QWERTY keyboard. It’s a full-touch handset with a 3.5 inch HVGA display, HSDPA, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3.5mm headset jack, 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, Qik Video Connect app, 800MHz processor, 512MB of on-board memory, and MicroSD card support.
The new smartphone measures 114 x 62 x 11.95 mm, and has a 1540 mAh battery that’s capable of providing up to 8 hours of talk time, or up to 28 days of stand-by time.
According to Motorola, the XT531 will hit China later this month. Starting this fall, the handset will be launched in other Asian markets (where a dual SIM version should be available), Europe (as Motorola Fire XT), and Latin America (as Motorola Spice XT). Moto said the new smartphone would be “affordable” – I expect its price to be on par with the price of the Xt316 (around $220).
