Motorola Defy Debuts, Ruggedized Android Handset Headed For T-Mobile

Motorola announced the Motorola Defy back in early September, which seems to be the Motorola Jordan we heard about not too long ago. Yesterday, Motorola announced in a press release that the phone is destined for exclusivity with T-Mobile USA. They also announced the phone's debut on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" yesterday.

Hardware-wise, the Defy sports Android 2.1 with MOTOBLUR, a 3.7" WVGA touchscreen, Wi-fi b/g/n support, 5MP camera with LED flash, Adobe Flash Lite, full Google support,  and resistance to water, dust, and scratches.

According to the Motorola press release, the Defy is expected to be available "in time for the holidays" for T-Mobile USA customers.

Oprah is no stranger to publicity stunts if you remember the Pontic car give-away at her show earlier. This time, she gave away trips to Australia and Motorola Defy to every audience member. No word on whether the phone's contract is covered as well, since she mentioned making international calls back to the States.

If you are interested, you can check out the YouTube video of the phone's debut below, if you really want:

I honestly have to say that I am almost always worrying about my phone being broken or lost, so anything that takes away some of that stress is a big winner in my book. I would seriously consider this phone if I was back in the States right now.
