Motorola Motoluxe

MOTOLUXE, as its name suggest, this new smartphone from Motorola boasts a very luxurious design featuring a high-resolution 4-inch FWVGA touchscreen display and an 8MP autofocus camera wrapped by its thin body of only 9.8mm.

“By combining sleek style with Android brains, MOTOLUXE is ideal for people who want the latest technology in a sophisticated package,” said Paolo Prearo, general manager in Motorola Mobility Italy. “Not only does this smartphone have a big screen and the latest, greatest entertainment tools, it’s affordable and won’t take a bite out of your budget.”

MOTOLUXE 4-inch touchscreen display is perfect for writing emails, Web browsing and watching movies. While its 8MP autofocus camera with LED flash allows users shoot like a pro. Users can immediately share those shots using MOTOLUXE’s preloaded social networking apps. Users can access Google Mobile Services which include Google Maps, Google Talk, Google Search, YouTube, Google Calendar, Google Voice Search, Google News, Google Weather, Google Books, and download thousands of contents from Android Market.

MOTOLUXE features Motorola’s MotoSwitch UI which organizes users’ favorite music, contacts and apps, group them together and put them in front at the center of the screen for ease of use. Its Social Graph feature learns about the contacts that the users talk on to and uses that information to populate the home screen. The more frequently the users communicate with someone, the bigger the icon of that contact becomes. Likewise the Activity Graph provides easy access to users’ favorite apps, automatically changing to reflect the apps the users use the most. Lastly, with Music Now users can easily play their favorite music while the Smart Gallery displays the users’ favorite pictures as collections.

One unique feature of the MOTOLUXE is its lanyard slot that lights up in two colors (licorice and white) up whenever there is a notification like missed a call, text message or email.
