Motorola FIRE XT / SPICE XT / XT531

 Motorola FIRE XT / SPICE XT / XT531 Available now
5th August 2011

Another addition to Motorola's more affordable Android lineup, the Motorola FIRE XT (SPICE XT in South America and XT531 in Asia) certainly isn't the most powerful Motorola you can buy, but overall the specifications are likely to suit a large number of consumers looking for a first Android phone.

The FIRE XT is an Android 2.3 smartphone with a 3.5" 480 x 320 pixel display, with a 5 megapixel camera on the back plus a VGA resolution camera on the front for video calling.  Motorola FIRE XT / SPICE XT / XT531 Inside is an 800 MHz processor with 512MB of RAM which isn't particularly fast but it should cope with most things you might want to run. The FIRE XT has a multimedia player, FM radio and a 3.5mm audio socket.

All the standard Android features are here, including GPS and Google Maps Navigation, WiFi, 3.5G support, Bluetooth and access to the Android Market plus (in some regions) Motorola's SHOP4APPS store.

There's a relatively large 1540mAh battery in the FIRE XT, quoted as giving up to 8 hours talktime and 28 days standby time on 3G. The handset measures 114 x 62 x 12mm and weighs 114 grams. There is 512MB of internal flash memory expandable to 32GB with a microSD card. Physically, it's not a bad looking device with curved edges and a two-tone finish.

In its Asian XT531 version, there will be a dual-SIM variant available in certain markets in, as well as the standard single-SIM model.

Handsets like this sell on price, but Motorola have not said how much the FIRE XT will cost, but our guess is that it will retail for about €300 or so when it hits the shops in the autumn.
