Motorola has announced the launch of a new Android handset called the Motorola XT316 – also known as the Motorola Fire and Motorola Spice (depending on the region where it’s sold). The phone will feature a candy bar form factor and a full QWERTY keyboard, reminiscent of the BlackBerry. It features a 2.8″ display and will run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread (with MotoBLUR of course).
The Motorola XT316 also features Moto Switch, which will allow users to switch to work or play mode – depending on where they are, so they don’t have to worry about unwanted eyes spying on private work-related files. Other specs include a 3-megapixel camera, a microSD card slot that supports up to 32GB, FM Radio with RDS support, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, an E-compass and more. No word on pricing of the phone, but it is now available in China and will reach the rest of Asia and Europe later this summer.
