CES isn't only a venue for the biggest and baddest technology, but also for affordable and accessible products as well, as we learned today at Motorola's booth. Introducing the Motorola Defy Mini, a shrunken version of big M's popular Defy smartphone. It's not going to blow anybody away specs-wise: inside we've got a 600 MHz single-core processor, 512 MB RAM, a 3MP rear camera, and a VGA front-facer, all underneath a 3.2-inch Gorilla Glass-coated VGA display. Those modest specs are all powered by a 1650 mAh battery, which will pack plenty of juice for days and days worth of standby time.
The Defy Mini certainly won't be running Ice Cream Sandwich anytime soon, but for those looking for a pocketable, entry level Gingerbread smartphone, Motorola has your solution. This one will only be available in China, Latin America, and Europe beginning next month, though keep an eye out for something similar to hit the States sometime down the line. Hit the break for some hands-on shots and video.
