Motorola's latest mid-range smartphone the Motorola Fire is hoping to win you over by giving you more battery for your buck

Featuring a 2.8-inch touchscreen above a full QWERTY keyboard, the Fire is clearly aiming at the mid-range market of 'fusion' smartphones which are combining touchscreens with the older conventional keyboards, it also has a 3MP camera on the back.

What may divert your attention however are two other things that feature on this phone; the battery life, and the OS. The Motorola Fire will come with Android Gingerbread 2.3 on-board and will feature what Clove.co.uk believes to be a brand-new UI from the company, taking a departure from MotoBlur. Finally it'll have a 'class-beating' 27-hour battery life on standby, something which not many phones of that price and power can boast.
