Motorola got acquired today, but also launched a new rugged Android phone.
Google bought Motorola Mobility today, but they also announced the new Motorola Defy+ rugged Android phone. Building on the Motorola DEFY's life proof heritage, Motorola DEFY+ offers exceptional protection from whatever life throws your way with its water resistant, scratch resistant and dust proof design (IP67). In addition, Motorola DEFY+ has a 1GHz processor that runs 25% faster and is more fun with the latest version of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) delivering a smarter operating system and better battery life to fully enjoy your experiences.
Water resistant, dust proof, and featuring scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass, Motorola DEFY+ can survive a sudden rain shower, a day on the beach, an all-night party – or even a tough workout with the pre-loaded CardioTrainer application, which transforms the device into the perfect running mate. Its brilliant 3.7-inch high-resolution touch-screen display enables you to easily view and track your workout progress. Wherever your days – or nights – take you, Motorola DEFY+ is the life proof device that can keep up with your toughest demands and wildest adventures.
Motorola DEFY+ will be available in Asia, Europe and Latin America starting in early fall.
