TORONTO, April 30, 2012 /CNW/ – The new MOTOLUXETM by Motorola Mobility Canada Ltd. keeps you entertained and connected with a dynamic new interface that learns what you like and adapts to help you do tasks faster, providing unique and seamless access to content that is relevant to you. The AndroidTM-powered smartphone sets the bar high with its elegant design and a unique multi-coloured LED notification light so you can easily keep track of incoming calls, texts or e-mails. With a 4-inch touchscreen that’s perfect for surfing the web and watching movies, you’ll have fun and stay connected – whether hanging out with friends or out on the town.

MOTOLUXE features a lively new interface that learns who you talk to and which apps you use and keeps all of that information front and center. The Social Graph feature gives you easy and fast access to the people who really matter. It learns who’s most important to you and uses that knowledge to populate the home screen. The more frequently you communicate with someone, the bigger their icon becomes. The Activity Graph focuses on your app habits, automatically changing to reflect the apps you use the most. With Music+, you can easily play your favourite music, while the Smart Gallery displays your favourite pictures as collections.

The unique multi-coloured LED indicator sets MOTOLUXE apart by letting you easily see when you’ve missed a call, have a message waiting or your battery is low. MOTOLUXE’s 8-megapixel autofocus camera with flash lets you shoot like a pro and share your favourite shots instantly, a bonus for mobile upload fanatics.

When you’re on the go, MOTOLUXE’s GPS technology will point you in the right direction and make sure you get to where the action is. If that isn’t enough, the smartphone is Bluetooth®-enabled, and gives you access to Google Play where you’ll find thousands of games, apps, books and movies.
