Well well well… today seems to be a good day for us. A few hours back, there was news of the Nexus S coming to India and now there is news that Motorola’s Defy will be touching base by next week, in fact January 24th. It seems that someone from AndroidOS has got a tip-off that the Defy will be hitting stores in India next week. So what can you expect from the Defy? Let’s have a look.
Defy is primarily a dust-proof and water-resistant phone, tailor-made to suit Indian conditions. The phone has a gorilla glass display, which means you won’t have to head to the nearest service center after a drop or two. It’s powered by a TI OMAP3610 processor clocking 800 MHz and a 512 MB RAM. Here’s a look under the hood of the Defy:
- 3.7-inch Capacitive Touchscreen with 480 x 854 pixel resolution
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, DLNA, 3G, A-GPS
- Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP
- 5 Megapixel camera with Autofocus and LED Flash
- In-built 2 GB memory, expandable up to 32 GB
- FM Radio
Defy runs on Android 2.1 Eclair but then it’s being said that the phone is in-line for a Froyo update pretty soon. The OS also has a MOTOBLUR UI with Live Widgets on top. Other features include a Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and integration with Facebook, Twitter and MySpace.
If the phone does indeed hit India, it is said that Defy will be available for Rs. 20,000. We’re keeping our fingers crossed.
