Motorola unveils two new entry-level Android mobile phones

Soon to be Google owned company Motorola Mobility has launched a pair of low end Android handsets in the Motoluxe, along with the Defy mini - the latter of which builds upon their tough smartphones; the Defy and Defy plus.

These two mobiles are breaking boundaries, but won't break the bank - according to Motorola, but are worthy additions to the company's budget-friendly range.

The devices run from the Android ‘Gingerbread' 2.3 OS, whilst the Motoluxe is slim touchscreen product and Motorola DEFY MINI is both dustproof and water-resistant - just as its two siblings are, as well.

Unlike the other Defy devices, the Mini and Motoluxe will be available in different colours and with the MotoSwitch user interface.

This is a UI that learns from who is being called the most and which apps are regularly used, then keeps all of that information front and centre.

Motorola's Motoluxe arrives in a svelte chassis with a 4-inch edge-to-edge touchscreen display, an 8megapixel camera and a front-facing VGA variant - which will be available in the colours of liquorice or white.

The Defy Mini ships with a scratch-resistant Corning gorilla glass 3.2-inch display, with a 3megapixel camera and a front-facing version too.

No prices have been made public as yet by Motorola for the Motoluxe or Defy Mini, only that they will be coming to Greater China, Europe and Latin America this spring.
