Motorola MOTOLUXE is a mid-range smartphone with a notification light that doubles as a place to attach a lanyard. The dedicated lanyard groove, as Motorola calls it, is located at the bottom left of the handset. That is also where the colored lighting for the devices notifications happens to be located. Aside from the added lanyard grove, the MOTOLUXE is an Android 2.3 device with a custom user interface called MotoSwitch. The hardware features a 4-inch, 480x854 display. Powering the smartphone behind the scenes is a single-core 800MHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Around the back the MOTOLUXE has an 8 megapixel camera with an LED flash. The front of the handset houses a VGA camera to aid in all of your video chatting needs. It also has a 1,400 mAh battery that Motorola claims will give the MOTOLUXE 6.5 hours of talk time.

It was among the couple of novelties arriving at CES 2012, but while we knew that it was going to be a mid-range warrior, we lacked information about the actual price of the handset. UK retailer Clove fixes that as it adds the Motoluxe to its list of handsets for pre-order at a price of nearly $400 (£258) off-contract.
The Motorola Motoluxe release date is set for late February or early March in the UK.
