DEFY THE CHALLENGES OF EVERYDAY LIFE THE NEW MOTOROLA DEFY IS NOW AVAILABLE FROM £25 PER MONTH FROM THE CARPHONE WAREHOUSE The Carphone Warehouse makes a big splash into the Android market with the new Motorola DEFY; a slim smartphone built to ‘defy’ the common causes of damage to mobile phones. Dust proof and water resistant, it provides protection from sudden rain showers, spilt drinks, or a sandy beach. The 3.7” high resolution touch screen display is large and resilient, with outstanding protection against scratch damage, resisting keys, pens and coins. This beautiful display also provides edge to edge views of favourite photos, videos and websites. CrystalTalk PLUS diminishes noisy environments with two microphones which filter out background noise and amplifies voice so you don't have to shout. The smart battery profiles allow you to switch to battery saver mode and get more life out of your phone inbetween charges. Motorola DEFY is perfect for web-browsing, gaming and movie-watching, due to the speedy processor, advanced browsing capabilities and large screen. The phone is also equipped with MOTOBLUR, which constantly streams all of the user’s texts, emails and social network updates straight to their homescreen, making it easier to manage contacts. What’s more, DEFY is enabled to stream, store and share content with DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatible devices around the house, such as HDTVs, PCs and games consoles. This means that music, video and photos are wirelessly transferrable between DLNA devices, making life more streamlined. The 5-megapixel camera with flash, digital zoom and auto focus allows users to capture important occasions. For added entertainment, the Connected Music Player means that users can discover, buy and download their favourite music straight from the phone. Access to 100,000 apps, widgets and games from Android Market further enhances the choice of entertainment available on Motorola DEFY.
we threw it into a pool- and it survived. We saw it sink to the bottom of a swimming pool while it was filming with it's onboard camera- pretty impressive. With a little more time with the device we are able to share some of our first impressions.
T-Mobile USA on November 3rd, then you should take some time out of your busy Friday afternoon, and take a look at these 7 different Android-based videos showcasing the DEFY. Interestingly enough, we would have thought one of the videos would be about the DEFY specifically, but the videos work out more like a "how-to" for Android in general, for Motorola handsets.
headed to T-Mobile USA - this past week at CTIA 2010, and it's certainly a tough little thing. Unlike other rugged smartphones it still gets a big display - 3.7-inches in this case - and doesn't feel like a great block of rubber. Meanwhile, Engadget managed to find a tank of water and promptly dunked the DEFY, only to discover that T-Mobile's claims about the smartphone's water-resilience are indeed accurate. Last month we saw the DEFY hold up to a few other durability tests, which certainly suggests this is one tough phone. [gallery]
