Why choose between a tough phone and a cutting edge Android smartphone when you can have both? The Motorola Defy is a high-end handset that can take a knocking and keep on rocking. But it's got thousands of great apps and a feature-set to rival anything else out there.
Be in no doubt of its credentials as a rugged phone. Thanks to the use of Gorilla Glass, this phone's brilliant 3.7-inch WVGA touchscreen is designed to survive in even the toughest conditions. And it's dust and water resistant to boot, with a special seal that means it can be submerged for up to half an hour and come out as good as new.
But the great thing about this handset is that it's just as impressive as a multi-functional communications device as it is in the resilience stakes. Onboard you'll find everything you'd expect on a modern smartphone, including a brilliant five megapixel camera, a web browser and great Google apps pre-installed, such as YouTube and Facebook.
What's more, as with all Android phones you'll be able to choose from a massive array of apps to download from the Android Market. The range includes everything from great games and diversions to keep you entertained as well as more practical business and travel applications.
Other great features of the Motorola Defy include a customisable homescreen, so that all most-used apps and functions need only ever be a single screen press away, an intuitive touchscreen user interface, Crystal Talk technology and dual microphones for optimum call clarity even in noisy environments.
Tough phones are usually pared-down handsets that stand out only because for their robustness. Not so the Defy. With the cutting-edge Android operating system onboard, it's got all the features you'd expect from a modern smartphone.
And because it runs Android, you'll also be able to look forward to regular operating system updates that'll bring a host of dazzling new functions to your smartphone. That's almost as good as getting a new phone each time!
Just one of the other innovations onboard is the Swype app that makes touchscreen typing a breeze. And you benefit from Motorola's exclusive MotoBlur custom user interface too, which integrates all your Facebook, Last.fm and Twitter information with all your Google contacts to make social networking on your phone so that it's quicker and easier than ever.
