TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 16, 2010) -

Mobilicity today announced it is adding the Motorola Spice™ to its growing roster of popular handsets and smartphones.

Exclusive to Mobilicity in its markets, the new Motorola device powered by Android™ will be priced at $199.99 – an outstanding value to consumers looking for an Android-based smartphone without a contract.

Spice delivers an excellent smartphone experience with its sliding QWERTY keyboard and large multi-touch screen, which can be customized through seven home screen panels with easy access to Google Search™, Google Maps™ with Google Latitude, Gmail™ and Android Market™.

Users can conveniently view and manage content from a single application – keeping track of call histories, messages, calendar events, photos and videos, all of which can then be mapped onto a timeline on the home screen. Plus, the device has a unique rear-touch Backtrack™ panel that makes it possible to navigate and scroll through web sites without obstructing the screen.

Coming soon to Mobilicity stores across Canada, the Motorola Spice is ideal for consumers taking advantage of Mobilicity's industry-leading $10 unlimited data add-on for affordable mobile access to email and the Internet.
