Motorola defies odds with latest Android Device

Posted by Donny Torrefranca

Telus released a new addition to their growing Android-powered devices, another from Motorola. With the latest trend of Android devices coming with at least 4″ screens, the Motorola Defy is sticking with a 3.7″ display size.

Using Corning’s trademark ‘scratch-proof’ Gorilla Glass with 480 x 854 pixels, photos taken with the built-in 5 MegaPixel camera will not be compromised.  The screen’s durability blends well with the Motorola Defy’s water-proof, dust-resistant design.  This device also comes preinstalled with CrystalTalk(r) PLUS, which vanquishes noisy environments with two microphones that filter out background noise. CrystalTalk(r) PLUS also amplify’s your voice so it will always come through loud, and clear.

This Android 2.2 powered device comes built in with Google apps such as Google Contact Sync™, Google Latitude™, Google Maps Street View™, Google Maps™, Google Maps™ Navigation, Google Quick Search Box™, GOOGLE CALENDAR™, GOOGLE MAIL™, GOOGLE NEWS AND WEATHER WIDGETS, GOOGLE TALK™, YOUTUBE, and of course the Android Market.

With Motorola, it will come with it’s MotoBlur UI. MotoBlur syncs your emails, messages, Facebook, Twitter feeds and happenings with continuous updates and back-ups. The service also features fully integrated GPS tracking and remote data wipe capabilities in case your phone gets lost or stolen.

  1. Done! My twitter is ub3rst4r.

  2. Nice looking phone. Good work Motorola!

  3. Nice phone… it’s just a shame that it comes with all the Moto bloat-ware and Motoblur (which has to be the ugliest android “skin” on the market).

  4. It looks like we are getting more phones in Canada. My twitter is pcdouble. Done all 3 steps.

  5. Good looking phone, but anything from Motorola now a days is cheap quality. Not something that I would want to wast my money on.

  6. Handset is nice; but with motorola’s update record, their tendency towards draconian lock-downs on the boot loader, and the terrible motoblur software, this is a phone I will NOT be considering.

  7. Cool phone. I have a BB but I’d love to try an Android phone.

    @aibra089 – follow me

  8. I had a HipTop II that I absolutely loved! Kept it going for 3 1/2 years – it was such a great phone. The Motorola looks similar to the HipTop in terms of function. I love the keyboard. I can type much faster that way. Awesome phone.

  9. This is the grooviest design I have ever seen in a phone. Plus, it has all the great functions! Neat!

  10. Great looking phone! Can’t wait to own my first android, it looks like an amazing platform!

  12. Old samsung user here..and I do mean old. could use a new phone for sure

  13. I like that you include the prices for the phone in your blog. We are looking for a new phone for my husband so this is very helpful.

    So I have to admit I love a flip keyboard phone. I text often and find it so much easier then the touch screen keypads. I have a touch screen now with no flip option and although I am much faster at typing now that I have got used to it I certainly miss the flip out keyboard.

  14. Amazing device! Great site to get the latest reviews. Thanks.

  15. I love android devices. This device looks awesome.

  16. This is a cool device. I love Google.

  17. I hope more phones come to Canada.

  18. Motorola phones are very slick. I like the Droid2.
