Motorola XT531 Enters Budget Market

August 5, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Motorola’s efforts to master the smartphone industry are on with the release of their budget phone, XT531. We had previously heard about this phone under the name of Motorola Domino+.

It is a compactly build device and doesn’t have a stellar specification list to boast about. It’s got an 800MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor under the hood running Android 2.3 Gingerbread on-board.

Storage space is allotted to 512MB of RAM and the memory is expandable by a microSD slot. The display consists of a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen with 480 x 320 resolution.

The phone sports a five-megapixel rear camera with LED flash along with a front-facing VGA sensor for video calling. The other features include the usual like Bluetooth, 802.11n WiFi, an electronic compass, GPS and an FM radio.

The last time we heard, the company was targeting the largest phone market in the world, China, with the XT531. The phone was to be released with piano paint technology in black and white.

You will be able to catch the XT531 in Europe as the Fire XT, while in Latin America it will be going under the name of Spice XT. We haven’t received word of the pricing or the carrier which will be picking up the phone.

For a low price the specs on this gadget aren’t bad, so go for it if you don’t have enough for a high end device.
