Motorola is set to launch a new smartphone in France via Orange – the new Motorola FIRE. What’s interesting about this phone is the fact that it closely resembles the previously announced Motorola Pro+ which should be available in the US soon. The only difference is that the Motorola FIRE will be sporting an AZERTY keyboard instead of QWERTY, simply because said keyboard is widely used in France. With that, the Motorola FIRE is obviously geared as a texting and messaging phone.
The rest of the features of the Motorola FIRE are pretty much standard and are what you should expect from an Android phone of its class. These features include – 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen display, 3 megapixel camera, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, microSD card slot, FM radio with RDS support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, aGPS, LED notifications and 1420 mAh battery which should give you full 8 hours of talktime and 30 days standby in 3G mode.
The Motorola FIRE is set to arrive on Orange France later this month.
