Motorola's latest toughened smartphone comes in a smaller package than its predecessor.

Motorola Mobility has followed up its Defy ruggedised smartphone with the Defy Mini.

Like the original Defy, the Defy Mini is an Android-based smartphone. But where the Defy was launched in Australia on Telstra, the new model is initially offered on an Optus prepaid plan at $199 including $30 credit. The phone is available from Optus retailers, Dick Smith, and other chains including Kmart and Target.

Features of the dust-proof, water-resistant and scratch-resistant phone include a 3.2in screen with Gorilla Glass, a 3MP camera plus a front-facing VGA camera, GPS navigation, and a 1650mAh battery.

It also marks the Australian debut of MotoSwitch, a UI which learns which songs, contacts and apps you use most often and keeps them close to hand.

"Motorola Defy Mini is just the right mix of style, value, performance and toughness." said Timo Brouwer, managing director at Motorola Mobility ANZPI. "It can stand up to whatever your busy life throws at it, keep you connected and organised and capture and share your once-in-a-lifetime adventures - all with resilience and style."
