Getting a jump on CES next week, Motorola has introduced two Gingerbread Android 2.3 smartphones that will arrive on UK shelves in February.

The mid-range MotoLuxe and Defy Mini were unveiled on Thursday. Both come with MotoSwitch, an interface feature that keeps tabs on which apps are used and which people are called most frequently, then automatically places them within easy reach on the phone. Both also have Motoblur-like features for managing social networking (Social Graph) and apps (Activity Graph), as well as dedicated music and photo gallery tools.

The touch-only MotoLuxe (shown above) has the better specifications, with a 4-inch edge-to-edge display and an 8-megapixel rear camera. There is also a lower-resolution front-facing VGA camera for video calls.

It has an 800MHz processor, and provides 1GB of ROM and 512MB of RAM for storage. It is quite thin, at 9.85mm, with other dimensions of 118m and 60.5m. It weighs 123.6g.
