The company, in partnership with phone provider Crazy Johns, announced the entry-level Motorola GLEAM device is now available in Australia for as little as $99 prepaid or $0 on the $10 per month plan over 24 months.

Marketed by Motorola as being an “affordable, simple and stylish” feature phone, the flip-phone boasts very entry level-like features including a 2MP rear-facing camera,  5MB of internal memory, a 2.4″ display and basic SMS, MMS and Email functionality.

“Sleek and easy to use, and with all the functionality you need from a mobile phone, its large keypad and display, coupled with its 13.9mm slim body makes it the ideal companion,” Motorola’s Australian division said in a statement today.

“Unique dynamic LED lighting and animations keep you notified of important information, while a subtle glowing light emitted from the flip's transparent base signals a call or message - you'll never miss a thing with the Motorola GLEAM.”

However there’s a major problem for those looking to use the device on 3G networks: you’re out of luck, with the GLEAM only supporting 2G GSM 900 / 1800 networks. It also only has support for Bluetooth 2.1, but boasts a battery life of up to  6 h 20 min talk time according to Motorola.

The GLEAM first launched in the UK mid-2011, and has since become available in a number of other markets including Austria, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.
