Motorola announced the first member of its Defy family of smartphones with a QWERTY keyboard. The new Defy Pro comes with a 2.7-inch Gorilla Glass display (HVGA or QVGA – we’re not sure) and it’s also a rugged (or at least semi-rugged) device made for folks leading an active lifestyle. In that sense, it comes with a specially designed dashboard, featuring three different views: Outdoor View that provides weather forecasts, Hiking View which shows info and details about hiking trails, and Workout View that includes a stopwatch and calorie monitor.
As for the rest of the specs, there’s Wi-Fi connectivity on board, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, Bluetooth, GPS, DLNA and a memory card slot.
Motorola failed to mention the price, though it said that the Defy Pro will be available in Brazil “by July 15.” Afterwards, we’re sure some other markets will get it, as well. It definitely looks like one of those smartphones that would be appreciated by folks switching from BlackBerry…
