Looks like Moto is getting ready to push out a couple of budget Android-power handsets to various parts of the world (excluding the U.S.). First up is the little brother to the Defy, appropriately named Defy Mini.

The DM offers a lot of the same "life-proof" features as its big brother, including dust protection, a scratch-resistant screen, and protection against water damage, all packed into its tiny 3.2-inch shell. You'll find a 3MP shooter on the back of the Android 2.3 device, a VGA front camera, and it has 1,650mAh batter for up to 10 hours of talk time.
