Rugged Motorola Defy with Android 2.1 coming to Europe

The same day the Motorola Milestone 2 was officially announced, Motorola UK has also unveiled the Motorola Defy – the company’s second rugged Android smartphone (after the Moto i1).

The Defy runs Android 2.1 (why not Froyo?), uses MotoBlur 1.5, looks pretty good, and is dustproof and water resistant.

Its main specs and features include:

  • 3.7 inch Corning Gorilla Glass display with 480 x 854 pixels
  • Accelerometer
  • HSDPA (900 / 2100 MHZ), GSM/EDGE (850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz)
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • A-GPS
  • 3.5mm headset jack
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • Crystal Talk Plus
  • 5MP autofocus camera with image stabilization, video recording and LED flash
  • 512MB RAM, 2GB ROM
  • MicroSD card support (up to 32GB)
  • 1540 mAh battery
  • 107 x 59 x 13.4 mm
  • 118 grams

Just like the Motorola Milestone 2, the Defy will be available in Europe starting the fourth quarter of the year. Pricing details have not been unveiled.

The Defy might be similar to the T-Mobile USA-bound Motorola Jordan – we’ll probably find out soon if this is true or not.

Until then, you can check out the Motorola Defy here at Motorola UK’s website.
