The Motorola Fire – Pre order

moto fire

Clove have let us know today that the first stock of the Motorola Fire is due to land late September and will be priced at £180 + VAT. At the moment they are only expecting the keyboard version of the FIRE to be available SIM-free and are unlikely to stock the touch screen only version, the XT531 Fire, but that doesn’t mean to say that it won’t be available via the mobile networks.

You can head over to the Clove website for more details. For the time being, here’s a look at its main features:

  • Front Facing QWERTY keyboard
  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • 2.8″ Touch screen
  • 3MP Camera
  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • 3G
  • 1420mAh Battery

Looks pretty nice if you ask me.

HTC and Beats Electronics team up


HTC have announced a new partnership with Beats Electronics, the company redefining the audio market with its iconic Beats by Dr. Dre audio experience.

“The HTC and Beats by Dr. Dre partnership is an opportunity for two world-class companies to redefine the smart phone industry and define the future,” said Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Beats by Dr. Dre and Chairman and CEO of Interscope Geffen A&M Records which is a division of Universal Music Group and a stakeholder in Beats. “For Beats by Dr. Dre, this represents a critical step in our continued mission to clean up the destruction of audio caused by the digital revolution; and reengineer how sound is delivered so that the consumer feels the music the way that the artist intended.”

HTC and Beats have been working together to create superior mobile audio experiences for consumers, which will result in a line of HTC devices integrated with Beats sound innovations, available this fall.

“Beats has found a unique way to harness popular culture in a manner that is unlike any other brand today,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC Corporation. “It’s an exciting brand that has been built around providing something very special, and we believe our strategic partnership will provide customers with unbeatable sound on HTC phones. We obsess over every detail of a consumer’s mobile experience and audio is a critical part of that experience.”
