Motorola Fire: A really great phone at an awesome price


Recently Google announced to acquire Motorola Mobility- the mobile business of Motorola for a very handsome amount. This marks the exit of Motorola from the traditional handset market, but the brand name will be retained. In any case Motorola was one of the first companies to support Google’s android base and was probably the only major player that was fully dedicated to the Android base.

Recently Motorola announced its latest offering to the Indian market with its model Motorola Fire. Personally I like Motorola’s handset and I think they are value for money. Although the definition value for money has really changed with coming of Micromax. But you want to go for a good and reliable brand name with some cool features than Motorola is the name one can trust upon. The phone is 3G enabled one.

Since Motorola has existed Indian market in the brick and mortar phone so if something happens to your handset then getting it repaired is an issue. I am facing the issue with my previous handset. But again, the user experiences with Motorola phones are really great.
