Motorola Defy Pro heading to Canada, too

After Brazil, Motorola is announcing the Defy Pro for Canada where it will join Rogers Wireless’ offering later this summer — price was not unveiled, though. The IP67-certified device (against scratches, spills and dust), Moto’s baby is an ideal smartphone for folks looking to leave the BlackBerry realm and hop over to the winning team.

Other specs include a 2.7-inch Gorilla Glass display, 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, VGA front-facing one, Bluetooth, GPS and a memory card slot.
