Motorola Fire XT531 warming up pockets from Autumn

Mobile phones, Tech Digest news


Motorola’s latest Fire/ Spice handset, the XT531, has been given a rough street date of Autumn 2011 for its European launch.

Very much a budget, entry level phone, it’ll let owners get in on the Android Gingerbread on the cheap.

Packing a 3.5 inch HVGA capacitive touchscreen, the phone will feature Motorola’s Moto Switch re-skinning of Google’s mobile OS.

An 800MHz processor sits under the hood, alongside 512MB of storage, in keeping with its entry-level credentials. With that said, it squeezes in plenty of connectivity options, including dual-band HSDPA, quad-band EDGE, an FM radio, Wi-Fi b/g/n, an E-compass, an ambient light sensor, accelerometer, proximity sensor, GPS and aGPS.

Still snaps from the rear camera on the XT531 will be 5MP resolution, with a VGA camera on the front.

A 1540mAh battery will give 28 days worth of standby power, and 8 hours of talk time.

No pricing is availalbe yet, but we’d expect you wont have to save too zealously for this one.
