The Prada phone by LG 3.0 could use some competition and the newly introduced Motorola Gleam+ handset is most likely to give the smartphone a run for its money. This latest addition might not be as capable as the former, but the manufacturer seems to have bundled it with a number of offerings that’s likely to keep owners well entertained.
The successor to the year-old Gleam handset is built around a clamshell form factor as well. Fitted within dimensions of 107mm x 52.5mm x 13.5mm is a WQVGA TFT display that measures 2.8 inches in length with a resolution of 400 x 240 pixels. There’s also a headphone jack, a USB 2.0 port, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR connectivity, 50MB of internal storage and a microSD card slot which is expandable up to a total of 16GB.
“The Motorola Gleam+ is as a stylish and easy to use as ever for the consumer who enjoys the simple things in life, without compromising on design and functionality,” commented Claudia Laepke, marketing director, Motorola Mobility Germany. “We designed this handset with a clear focus on delivering a great experience in a simple, sleek and stylish design.”
Besides flaunting a stylish design, the Motorola Gleam+ comes with an intuitive UI that should allow users to conveniently navigate through menus and various options. For entertainment needs, the company has packed in a full HTML web browser, a 2MP camera with a fixed focus lens, video recording capabilities at 12fps and digital zoom as well as FM radio. Through the 750mAh battery, the achievable talk time is slated to be up to 4 hours and 49 minutes, whilst derivable standby is estimated at around 417 hours and 26 minutes.
The Motorola Gleam+ price stands at €99 that is inclusive of VAT, but without any contract. This handset will be available through Telekom and various retail outlets starting March 2012 in color options of silver and winter white.
