On the 9th February, Motorola Mobility announced they are releasing the Defy Mini in Europe.
It's a cute device, running Android 2.3.7, and is IP67 certified, With dust-proof, water-resistant and a scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass display.
Hardware highlights include; MSM7225A 600mhz ArmV7 processor, 512mb RAM, 3 Megapixel Camera, LED Flash, and a 3.2 inch HVGA display.
But that is where the good stuff stops, because since Motorola's Software Update Release schedule has been published, it's clear that the Defy Mini is the new Motorola Flipout, in other words it's staying on it's release version of Android indefinitely. Add in the fact that Motorola lock down their bootloaders, this handset has little chance of a custom rom community.
I would advise to avoid this handset unless Motorola change it's mind and announce Android 4.0 ICS for it as an update... do you agree?
