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.
