Motorola Offers Up Waterproof Smartphone

  • Waterproof Android phone
  • Has Motoblur technology to sync social networking sites
  • DNLA enabled

Motorola’s Defy smartphone is claimed to be Australia’s first summer proof smart phone – it is water-, dust- and scratch-resistant.

It has a 3.7-inch high-resolution touch screen display, which provides edge-to-edge views of your favourite photos, videos and websites, and also features Swype technology for SMSing, which was first sen on the Samsung Galaxy S handset.

Defy  acts as a 3G mobile hotspot to connect up to five wifi enabled devices, so you turn any place with wifi access into a hive of productivity. The Defy is also Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA)-enabled to stream, store and share content with compatible devices around the home, such as HDTVs, game consoles and PCs.

The Connected Music Player displays lyrics and album art for the songs stored on your phone, and enables you to discover, buy and download music. It also features the latest version of Motorola’s Motoblur, which is said to make it easy to manage emails, messages and social updates in one place, with the additions of filtering, resizable widgets, added corporate security and a versatile battery manager.

The handset is water resistant, so the handset is accident proof, protected from life's challenges like a splash from the pool, spilt drink, or dropping your phone in the sand. The phone is not designed to be used for taking photos underwater.

The Motorola DEFY is available for $0 upfront to Telstra Consumer and Telstra Business customers on a 24 month $49, or higher, Cap Plan (min cost $1176), which offers up to $400 worth of standard national calls, text and MMS plus 1GB of included data to use in Australia.
