It looks like Motorola still has plans for its rugged Android smartphone – Defy. Apparently the updated version of the device, dubbed DEFY+, will be released in Germany during the third week of September.
The information comes from the German website mobiFlip.de, which says that the local branch of O2 will get to sell the Android-powered device. The same site mentions the specs – the DEFY+ will rock a faster processor (1GHz vs 800MHz found in the original Defy) and pre-installed Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread instead of Froyo. Aside from that, rest of the guts will remain the same and so will the design. In that sense, expect identical 5-megapixel camera on the back, HSPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS, Bluetooth and an array of “standard for an Android smartphone” sensors like compass and accelerometer.
Finally when it comes to the price, the Motorola DEFY+ will be sold for about 300 EUR unlocked. In other words, it will be available for free on contracts starting at 30 EUR per month or so.
