Motorola devices have been relatively quiet over the past few months in Canada. Nothing has been released since the new RAZR, which ended up in both Rogers and Fido’s lineup. Now, if this screenshot is correct, it looks like the Motorola MOTOLUXE is heading to Virgin Mobile. An case has popped up in their inventory system with a price of $22.99. No word yet on a release date or pricing for the device, but the MOTOLUXE is an Android-powered smartphone that runs OS 2.3, has a 4-inch display (480 x 854), 800Mhz processor, 1 GB ROM, 512 MB RAM and an 8 MP camera.

There’s a pic below of what the Motoluxe looks like…We’ll have more info soon.
(Thanks tipster!)

    i would only consider it if it came pre-loaded with Android 4.x or if the software could be seamlessly downloaded at launch. Carriers and manufacturers need to stop shipping devices with 2.x sooner rather than later, before Q4 2012 at the absolute latest.

  • Mischa Price

    so this phone can have gingerbread but the defy can’t and may never (unless google breaks the barier and takes over the software and updates all the moto phones)

  • More Mah

    $22.99 no contract price for this phone sounds like a pretty good deal. I’ll take one. Amazing how these low-end smartphones have dropped in price since the HTC One series was released.

    • Mike

      That’s the price of the CASE.

  • Justin

    Its the standard price of an Ishield, not a case but a gel screen protector. Just thought I would clarify.

    so virgin didn’t learn from the way that motorola Pro flopped with bell??
