Motorola intros the MOTOLUXE smartphone
Haven’t you always wanted a smartphone that has a place to attach your favorite lanyard? Motorola must think so as they have just introduced the world to the MOTOLUXE smartphone which is a mid-range handset with a notification light that doubles as a, you guessed it, a place to attach a lanyard.

The dedicated lanyard groove, as Motorola calls it, is located at the bottom left of the handset. That is also where the colored lighting for the devices notifications happens to be located. Aside from the added lanyard grove, the MOTOLUXE is an Android 2.3 device with a custom user interface called MotoSwitch. The hardware features a 4-inch, 480x854 display. Powering the smartphone behind the scenes is a single-core 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM.

Around the back the MOTOLUXE has an 8 megapixel camera with an LED flash. The front of the handset houses a VGA camera to aid in all of your video chatting needs. It also has a 1,400 mAh battery that Motorola claims will give the MOTOLUXE 6.5 hours of talk time.

When the MOTOLUXE launches in February it will be in Europe, China, and Latin America although it is very possible a variation of this device could hit the states later in the year. Check out the video and tell us what you think about the Motorola MOTOLUXE in the comments below.
