The Motorola Defy is a Google Android OS powered smartphone introduced in September 2010. The feature list is: 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, digital zoom and LED flash, 1540 mAh battery, aGPS, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, 3.5mm headphone jack, TI OMAP3610 processor at 800MHz, 512MB RAM, 2GB of internal storage, plus microSD memory expansion slot. The Defy is running Android 2.1 Eclair and has Motorola's own user interface (Motoroblur version 1.5). The hanset is setting itself apart from other smartphones through CrystalTalk Plus (filtering out background noise), DLNA compatibility, the preinstalled Swype keyboard, and its ruggedness. The latter includes an impact and scratch resistant Gorilla glass, a dust proof and water resistant casing, and IP67 durability spec compliance.
