SlashGear Morning Wrap-up: November 23 2010

Dunk it in! This morning over at Android Community (or was it late last night?) Vincent reviewed the Motorola Defy - a rugged piece of machinery that'll get wet and keep on clickin.

When it comes to point-and-shoot cameras, there doesn't seem to be much differentiation between cameras in the market. That being said, you're either a fan of them, or you're not.
