Motorola unveiled its special surprise for Oprah fans- it is the Motorola DEFY for T-Mobile USA. The press release is hitting the wires before the show and confirms that American manufacturer will launch the DEFY with MOTOBLUR in time for the holiday shopping season. This latest offering is a rugged Android handset that features a 3.7-inch WVGA (480 x 854 pixels) screen with Gorilla Glass for scratch-resistance, a 5-megapixel camera with flash, digital zoom, and auto focus, DLNA support, the suite of Google Android apps, and Android 2.1 with MOTOBLUR.
As a rugged handset, the DEFY is resistant to dust, scratches, impact, and water. 3G connectivity is a given but there is no word on whether it will follow in the footsteps of the G2 and offer T-Mobile-friendly HSPA+. One can always hope! The DEFY was previously announced for Europe with a Q4 launch date and the T-Mobile USA model will debut in that same timeframe. Unfortunately, T-Mobile USA and Motorola were not forthcoming and the precise launch date and the oh-so-important pricing is still unknown.
If you are interested in this rough and rugged handset for T-Mobile USA, Motorola has set up a promotional webpage where you can sign up for additional information as it is released. Anyone going to scoop up this rugged, good-looking Android offering when it arrives?
