The main appearence of the phone is the shell-like structure built on it in order to make it “life proof”. Motorola says that it can resist impact, waterproof, and dust proof. This is the first phone that will actually be able to resist water. Motorola also stated that you would be able to take the phone in the shower and it would not be affected at all. If this is all true, the phone will be a great option to those people who are clumbsy or just not careful with their cell phones.
The phone itself has a 3.7 inch touch screen with 480×854 resolution. It also includes a 5 megapixel camera along with flash on the back of the phone. The Defy also includes a QWERTY touch screen keyboard that many reviewers have said it to be fast and accurate. Also, the new form of typing, swype, will be installed on the phone for all of you who like to text or type faster.
On the down side, the Defy still runs on the outdated Android 2.1 software and has only a 800MHz processor compared to most other smartphones that run on Android 2.2 and 1GHz processor. It doesn’t support 3G networking yet but that is likely to change not too long after it is released this winter. On the bright side, the Defy is one of the few smart phones that can run Adobe Flash 10.1 so you can fully enjoy the features of the internet right on your phone.
I think this phone will be a great addition to the smartphone “family”. Besides being able to run Adobe flash and having a 5 megapixel camera, the fact that the phone is waterproof is just amazing.
