A penny change from £100 for this cut-price Android handset
Motorola has announced a cheap Android smartphone, the Motosmart, which will be available later this month for a penny shy of £100.
Continuing a recent trend of cut-price Android handsets, the Motosmart has most of the features we have come to expect from a smartphone, but with all the glitzy bits taken out.
Motorola was not forthcoming with technical specifications, but it will have a 3.5inch screen, Wifi, access to the Google Play store and a three-megapixel camera to capture precious moments in questionably grainy quality.
Motorola said people worried about the weather could check out ‘vivid forecasts' and almost ‘feel the thunder tremble' from the phone.
Speaking about the wallet-concsious offering, Victoria McManus of Motorola Mobility said the phone could make life easier:
"You don't have to worry about complicated settings and hard-to-follow instructions. Just turn this smartphone on and get instant access to the people and things in your life that matter most."
The new handset will only be available on T-Mobile on a 24-month contract from £7 per month. It will cost £99.99 on pay as you go.
