T-Mobile dates, prices ruggedized Motorola Defy
The Motorola Defy smartphone has now been dated by T-Mobile via a tweet for a release on November 3. The price for the Android 2.1-powered phone has also been set at $100. The Defy is rare for Android through its resistance to dust, shock and water while retaining a touch-only candy bar form factor.
The phone is powered by an 800MHz TI OMAP chip, with the Motoblur social networking interface overlaid atop Android. It only supports Flash Lite, but has a 3.7-inch, 854x480 display. Also onboard are a 5-megapixel camera, GPS and Wi-Fi, while dual microphones reduce wind noise and ambient noise during conversations. [via TmoNews]
