Motorola Spice Key and or Fire makes its way into the world


Since the launch of the iPhone it seems the world has been inundated with touch screens. Some super large, some super small. What has remained a staple however is the simple candy bar design with a fully tactical QWERTY keypad. RIM helped make them the staple they are, however more and more companies are producing these lovable QWERTY’s based merely out need. Most QWERTY lovers are not going to give up their keyboards for apps, so what do? Well give them both. In the past few months more companies have been pumping out these QWERTY devices and it seems that Motorola is finally releasing their Fire and Spice Key.

The Motorola Spice Key originally made its appearance back in 2010 among five other devices that have already been released. The Citrus, Bravo, Flipside, Flipout and Defy have all made their way to the market and can be found very regularly amongst teens and adults alike.
