THE INQUIRER got some hands-on time with Motorola's latest affordable Android smartphone, the Motorola Motosmart.

Retailing for a mere £99, the device targets the budget end of the smartphone market and as a result has some pretty basic specifications.

The Motosmart runs Google's ageing Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, has a 600MHz Qualcomm MSM727 processor and features a 3.5in 480x320 resolution touchscreen.

The device also features a bare-bones 3MP camera without flash and lacks a front-facing camera for video calling. In terms of storage, the Motosmart comes with 156MB of memory and support for up to 32GB of microSD storage.

Powering the device is a 1400mAh battery that promises to last through at least a day's use. The device will available through Carphone Warehouse and T-Mobile later this month with prices starting at £7 per month on contract. µ
