Motorola is set to launch two new handsets in the UAE next month, the FLIPOUT and the DEFY.

The Flipout is a completely square phone with a pivot design which flips open to reveal a QWERTY keypad.

Seemingly aimed at the younger market, the phone is equipped with Android and is the company's newest take on a smartphone. The phone comes in several startling shades including fairway green, raspberry crush and saffron or white and the colours are interchangeable.

The Flipout also features a 3MP camera, 3G connectivity, and a touch screen, which can display picture IDs, ringer IDs, and social network status.

The Defy is a more grown-up smartphone that comes equipped with a 3.7-inch high-resolution, scratch-resistant touch screen with customisable widgets. The Defy is also water resistant as well as dust proof, to provide durability.

The Defy also includes up to 2GB of onboard memory and capacity for external memory of 32 GB, a 5-megapixel camera featuring a flash, digital zoom and auto focus. It has audio, video and internet radio streaming capabilities and can operate across multiple networks.

To ensure you don't ever get lost, the Defy has eCompass, aGPS (assisted) with Google Maps, Google Latitude, Google Maps Street View and eCompass already loaded.

Both the Flipout and Defy smartphones will be the latest addition to the family of Motorola mobility products launched in the region.
