Just like that the Motorola Defy gets replaced. Today Motorola has announced the New Defy+ with a few beefed up specifications to handle every type of situation. From mud and water, to browsing and gaming. Just like the first model the Defy + keeps its same rugged water resistant, scratch resistant and dust proof design while getting a boost in the hardware department.

This time around the hardware is a little more impressive and will feature a 1 Ghz processor, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 3.7″ 480×854 resolution screen, a 5 MP camera and 2GB of internal storage with optional micro SD support. Quite an impressive device for also being able to get submerged in water or mud and keep on pushing out that data or make phone calls.

I guess the original was popular enough to release a second device, this announcement comes right after Samsung recently unveiled a similar device. Samsung just announced the XCover Rugged Smartphone to compete with the Defy but now with the Defy+ it has a little bit of competition. The Defy+ may not be a Droid Bionic but it is plenty fast, powerful, and safe and would make the perfect companion for Mike Rowe with Dirty Jobs right? More details are available via the full press release.
