Motorola and Nextel Team Up to Offer the MASTER TOUCH Smartphone in Mexico

The handset ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread platform onboard

Although Motorola Mobility did not launch any new devices at Consumer Electronics Show 2013 (CES), in Las Vegas, the company continues to release its budget-friendly smartphones in the Americas.

The US-based handset maker has just announced the immediate availability of the new Motorola MASTER TOUCH Android smartphone in Mexico.

Exclusively available from Nextel carrier, the MASTER TOUCH supports group calls with up to 25 participants at the same time, thus allowing owners to connect with other users and groups instantly.

“This launch represents the continuing evolution and innovation of our product portfolio and strengthens our strategic partnership with Motorola Mobility. Together, we listen to our customers and today, more than ever, we offer devices that meet their personal and professional needs by using a technology that is unique in the market and that no other operator can offer,” said Alberto Escobar, marketing vice president of Nextel de México.

Unfortunately, the smartphone ships with Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system out of the box and packs a 5-megapixel rear photo snapper with 4x digital zoom, LED flash and HD (720p) video recording.

It provides the latest Smartradio technology from both companies running on Nextel Evolution, one of the fastest data and voice network in the Mexican market.

Motorola MASTER TOUCH comes pre-loaded with Quickoffice suite, allowing users to easily open and edit documents, presentations and spreadsheets. The smartphone also provides access to more than 700,000 apps and games via Google Play Store.

“Motorola MASTER TOUCH is the third Smartradio launched jointly with Nextel since the introduction of Nextel Evolution less than two months ago, reaffirming the commitment of both companies to provide customers with more and better options. Designed for users who require large displays and who use their phones for multiple purposes, Motorola MASTER TOUCH is ideal for work, entertainment and all kinds of mobile communication,” concluded Vince García, iDEN commercial director at Motorola Mobility Mexico.
