Motorola XT531 is official for Europe, Latin America and Asia
There is no doubt that the Motorola XT531 Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone is cute as a button, which begs the question why it won't be seeing the shelves in the US.

Its affordable nature is going to Europe, under the moniker Motorola Fire XT (no associations with eXTinguisher, please), and to Latin America as the Motorola Spice XT some time this fall.

We guess that leaves the uninspiring XT531 name for China, where the handset will be available as soon as this month. Buyers in Hong Kong and Taiwan will have access to Motorola's SHOP4APPS service, besides Android Market.

Motorola XT531 carries a 3.5" display, 5MP camera with flash, 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM, with all the requisite connectivity options and a microSD expansion slot. Special attention has been paid to the battery, which is the generous 1540mAh, promising eight hours of talk time out of the handset, and 28 days of standby, even with 3G left on.

Another point for the phone is that it will have a dual-SIM version in certain Asian markets, where this feature is extremely popular.
