Tough-phone with QWERTY hits Brazil first
There's another tough-phone on the market from Motorola, going by the name of the Motorola Defy Pro.
Despite an official launch and confirmation that Brazil will be the first place to see the phone as soon as 15 July, details are still a little thing on the ground. It's an Android phone for example, but we don't yet know which version. There's pretty much nothing on the inner workings too. But we do know that the phone is 'lifeproof', designed to keep your phone safe from water, dust and shock, although it doesn't have the kind of certification that would make it a winner on the building site.
However, it does have a 2.7-inch Gorilla Glass screen along with GPS, Wi-Fi, 2GB of storage, a memory card slot and a five-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash. And as you might have noticed, this is the first 'lifeproof' phone from the company with both a touch-screen and QWERTY keyboard.
As the phone looks to be chasing the BlackBerry market, the Defy Pro also comes with business-friendly Quickoffice and MotoPrint software pre-installed.
As we said, this is heading to Brazil first and soon. It's likely to hit the UK at some point though, just like the majority of the Defy range. When it does, it's likely to be for a modest contract outlay, but we will confirm details of that as and when we hear.
