T-Mobile has finally announced the launch date and price for the Motorola Defy. The Android 2.1 handset is scheduled to go on sale on November 3rd for only $99.99 with a new two year contract. The Defy is certainly not the fastest handset in T-Mobile’s lineup, but with an 800 MHz OMAP 3610 processor, 3.7 inch display, 1540 mAh battery, 1.25GB onboard memory, and 5MP camera with LED it’s certainly no slouch.
The Motorola Defy will feature the new MotoBLUR 1.5 running on Android 2.1. When the handset was initially unveiled, Motorola mentioned that an Android 2.2 upgrade is being considered, but they were unwilling to make any commitments
While the specs may be mildly impressive, the main selling feature of the Motorola Defy is its ability to resist impact, dust, water, and scratches. Those who work at more physically intensive jobs or find themselves in the great outdoors a lot more than they do in the city may be more comfortable carrying the Motorola Defy than many of the other more delicate Android options.
