Cut'n'paste UK launch for cut-price Motorola Android

Company 'droids speak identical lines

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Motorola's Motosmart budget Android is coming to Blighty, courtesy of T-Mobile, which will be offering the cut-price smartphone for £100 on PAYG.

That buys you an Android 2.3 Gingerbread touchscreen handset with a 3.5in display, a 3Mp camera, 2.4GHz 802.11n Wi-Fi and a wee bit of on-board storage that you'll need to add a Micro SD card to.

“Simply put, Motosmart makes life easier,” said Victoria McManus, marketing director, UK & Nordics, Motorola Mobility. “You don’t have to worry about complicated settings and hard-to-follow instructions. Just turn this smartphone on and get instant access to the people and things in your life that matter most.”

Which is EXACTLY the same quote offered by one Simone Rossi, marketing manager, Mobile Devices, Motorola Mobility Italia, when the Motosmart was released over there last month:

“Simply put, Motosmart makes life easier,” said Simone Rossi, marketing manager, Mobile Devices, Motorola Mobility Italia. “You don’t have to worry about complicated settings and hard-to-follow instructions. Just turn this smartphone on and get instant access to the people and things in your life that matter most.”

Cut'n'paste much, Moto? Or are all these now-Google employees rather more Stepford Wives than they used to be? ®
