Orange to Launch Motorola FIRE in France

A few days ago Motorola officially announced the Motorola Pro+ which comes with a QWERTY keyboard and business style look. Now Motorola is planning to launch another similarly designed phone known as Motorola FIRE.  This time, however, we’re not talking the USA as it’s expected to launch in France via Orange. Instead of QWERTY, the FIRE comes with an AZERTY keyboard because, well, France does things a little differently sometimes.  The FIRE is a budget friendly Android powered phone and it seems that this device is actually for teenagers who are looking for a affordable device with a good AZERTY keyboard so they can do messaging easily. Check out the specs list after the jump.

  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • Dual-band HSDPA/Quad-band EDGE
  • 2.8” QVGA touchscreen display
  • Full AZERTY keyboard
  • 3MP camera
  • MicroSD card slot up to 32GB
  • FM radio with radio data system (RDS) support
  • Wi-Fi conforming with 802.11b, 802.11g or 802.11n standards
  • E-compass, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, accelerometer
  • Assisted global positioning system (aGPS)
  • LED notifications
  • 3.5mm audio jack
  • 1420mAh battery; eight hours of talk time or 30 days of standby in 3G mode
The device will hit Orange France shelves this month, so hopefully you will see it in coming weeks. So our readers in France, are you looking forward to grab one from Orange?

HTC Teases With Package of Seemingly Related Android Stuff

I am not sure what to make of the following items. Last week, I received a package on Wednesday that looked and felt an awful lot like it would contain a review unit cell phone. The name on the box indicated it was from HTC’s PR firm, Waggener Edstrom. Excited that it might be a new HTC phone (EVO Shift 4G, Thunderbolt), I tore into the box. Instead of an Android smart phone awaiting me inside, I found pieces to what felt like a viral puzzle game.
