Motorola Motosmart budget smartphone heading to UK

Counting your pennies? Motorola's got your back with this 3.5in handset, hitting at the end of July for £100 on PAYG

High-end smartphones are packing more and more features – but they don't come cheap. Now Motorola's stepping in to save your wallet with its budget Motosmart handset, which lands this July for £100 on Pay As You Go – or a mere £7 a month on contract.

Okay, so you aren't going to be wowing anyone with the Motosmart's specs; the new handset runs on Android 2.3 (aka Gingerbread) and is pretty stripped down compared to Motorola's premium models. It looks sleek, though, and weighs a mere 115g to match its slender price.

The 3.5in touch screen packs a low 480 x 320 resolution display, but the 3MP camera is pretty handy considering the price. It also comes packed with 165MB of internal memory, with space to bulk it up 32GB via microSD.

The handset will be available on T-Mobile from the end of July.
