Motorola Announces the Defy Rugged Android Phone
Motorola today announced the Defy, its latest rugged Android phone, which will be available exclusively to T-Mobile customers. The Defy comes with a 3.7-inch, WVGA scratch-resistant touch screen in addition to protection from water and dust ingress. The Defy is a slim, slab-style device, and also has a 5 megapixel camera with flash and auto-focus, DLNA compatibility, dual microphones, and Motorola's CrystalTalk Plus technology. It will come with Adobe's Flash Lite software, as well as the standard Google services, such as Gmail and Google Maps. It will ship with Motorola's Motoblur software, though Motorola didn't specify which version of Android will be running on the Defy. The device will be available to T-Mobile customers in time for the holiday shopping season.
The Motorola Defy is the most stylish water resistant phone around, and a real smartphone to boot. Is this the perfect companion for your next adventure?
