Motorola has scrapped plans for its high-end Ivory E18 mobile phone, as the squeeze on consumer spending continues to dampen demand for luxury mobiles.
The handset was to have featured high quality materials, with buyers able to choose between a gold and platinum version or a cheaper edition fashioned from stainless steel.
The Ivory was also to feature an eye-catching slider form factor and three megapixel camera.
However, according to reports Motorola has now shelved plans to bring the phone to market citing a “lack of interest” from network carriers.
Motorola is, however, to press ahead with other new mobile phone launches this year, including its debut on the Android operating system which is to feature a high grade camera and a Wi-Fi support.
Also due from the company is a rugged mobile phone dubbed the Clutch i465, which is capable of resisting shocks, vibration, dust and even solar radiation.
