It has a 4.3-inch scratch-resistant touchscreen, a splashguard coating to protect from spillages, eight megapixel rear camer and 1.3 megapixel forn camera, HD video recording and 16GB of internal memory, which can doubled with a microSD card.

The handset also comes preloaded with the Motocast app, enabling users to stream or download content from a home or work computer straight onto the device.

Users can also collaborate in real-time using GoToMeeting, and create and edit files on the phone with QuickOffice.

Pricing and retailer availability in the UK will be announced in due course.
