Motorola has decided that it is out with the charcoal black and in with the colourful for its PEBL mobile phone.

The company is adding four new shades; green, pink, blue and orange to the range in the hope of boosting sales of the handset.

“We've gone from pink to whoa” said Jim Wicks, Vice President and Director, Consumer Experience Design, Motorola on the new designs.

Underneath the new paint job, the four fun mobiles remain the same offering a VGA camera to take photos and movies, Bluetooth for handsfree calling and quad band connectivity so you can take the phone with you around the world.

The colour PEBL phones are expected to be available before June in the UK, however Motorola has yet to set a price or a specific launch date for the new models.
