The newest addition to the smartphone market is the Motorola XT531, an Android smartphone designed to be fun, fashionable and packed with features.
The Motorola XT531 aims to give users a more engaging experience with social networking functionality, a 3.5-inch, bright touchscreen display, dual cameras to film videos, and a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with built-in flash.
The latest version of Google’s operating system, Android, or 2.3 Gingerbread, powers the smartphone, which means users will have access to more than 250,000 apps from the Android Market and in some countries will have access to SHOP4APPS.
The Qik Video Connect features allows users to create videos and share them with friends in real time. Users can also use the Qik app with the front-facing camera for video chatting.
Users can also personalise the Motorola XT531 through the Moto Switch user interface that enables users to switch between friend and work-centric modes, depending on what they’re doing.
The battery on the smartphone will allow users to talk for eight hours or have 28 days of standby in 3G mode. The battery has been designed to handle regular multitasking between apps, games and web browsing, as well as heavy messaging.
The Motorola XT531 will be available starting this month in China. Starting this fall, the device will be available in select countries in Europe, where it will be marketed as the Motorola FIRE XT.
