Motorola has revealed a new smartphone which will be out next month.

The Motorola Wilder is aimed at a teenage audience and is designed to enable users to “live life for the moment” without worrying about their handset even if they’re “amidst the muddiest and rowdiest festival scenes”.

Apparently the phone is splash and dust-resistant, although whether it will cope with being dropped in a mire of thick gloopy Glastonbury mud and subsequently getting trod on by thousands of brightly coloured wellingtons isn’t so certain.

Still, it has a “durable” 2.8 inch QVGA touchscreen, and other specs include a 2 megapixel camera, bluetooth, 5MB of memory and an FM radio player.

An OS isn’t specified, this is just a custom UI with apps and games which include Tetris and Need for Speed along with social network integration and the Opera Mini web browser.

The display is resistive, mind, but the Wilder has a budget price label of £50. The handset will be available from the Carphone Warehouse in July.
