Mobile phone firms flocked this week to the industry’s largest annual conference, the 3GSM World Congress, held in Barcelona, Spain.

Motorola was targeting the lower end of the price spectrum at the show with a line of handsets designed for the mass market and inspired by its flagship Razr brand.

The mobile phone manufacturer, which is currently fighting to hold onto its number two position, unveiled three devices at 3GSM — the W205, W510 and W215.

“Motorola is starting to take high-end device design and drive that into the mass market,” Harout Bedrossian, area sales manager for mobile devices at Motorola, said this week at a launch for the products in Dubai held to coincide with the conference in Barcelona.

Seducing business customers was the key focus at the show for the world’s biggest cell phone maker Nokia, which introduced three handsets targeting enterprise users and updated its mobile e-mail platform.

The vendor broadened its Eseries line with the addition of the E90 Communicator, E65 and E6li. Each operates across different continents and offers fast broadband data connectivity, with the E90 also being HSDPA enabled. The firm also released its Nokia Intellisync Mobile Suite 8.0; this gives Nokia a mobile e-mail server that is device agnostic and supports up to 120 standard handsets.
