Two brand new smartphones dashing out of Motorola’s stable today, the svelte Motoluxe for fashion-concious mobile fans and the Defy Mini for hardy adventurers.
First off, the Motorola Motoluxe, shown off in the video above. Described as a “hip device [that’s] perfect for writing emails, surfing the Web and watching movies”, it features a 4-inch edge-to-edge touchscreen display, 8MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera and a 1400mAh battery that offers 6.5 hours of talk time and 19 days standby.
Next is the Motorola Defy Mini, seen in the video directly above. It’s dust and scratch resistant thanks to Corning Gorilla Glass used in the 3.2 inch touchscreen display. It also has a 3MP rear camera and VGA front facing one for video calling. The Defy Mini’s 1650mAh battery is good for up to 10 hours of talk time and 21 days of standby time, while the phone’s UI has an “Instrument Dashboard” for easy access to apps relating to outdoor pursuits.
Both handsets come packing Android version 2.3 Gingerbread, and feature the MotoSwitch user interface, which is said to adapt itself depending on how you use your phone, bringing your most called contacts, most read feeds and over favourite information to the fore.
Both devices are expected to be available in Greater China, Europe and Latin America starting this spring, though no pricing has been revealed. Both will also be on show at next week’s CES event in Las Veags.
