A sequel to the previously released Gleam, the Motorola Gleam+ hits out with the familiar clamshell body trying to appear as stylish as possible. And besides looking good, the phone packs in some handy features like a full HTML browser and dual displays.

Although it retains the clamshell architecture of its predecessor, this latest Motorola handset boasts of an even slimmer profile that’s about 0.4 thinner than the Gleam. It features an intuitive and uncomplicated user interface along with dual screens. The matrix display of the device comprises 144 LEDs and is accompanied by a glowing base light that alerts users regarding missed calls and unread messages. It also flaunts a 2.8-inch WQVGA display of 400 x 240p resolution.

“The Motorola Gleam+ is as stylish and easy to use as ever for the consumer who enjoys the simple things in life, without compromising on design and functionality. We designed this handset with a clear focus on delivering a great experience in a simple, sleek and stylish design,” stated Victoria McManus, UK and Nordics marketing director, Motorola Mobility.

Equipped with a 2MP fixed focus camera, the Bluetooth-enabled handset has been embedded with an expansion slot for a microSD card of up to 16GB capacity. The manufacturer has also thrown in a 750mAh battery for talk time of over 4 hours.
