Hardest Android on the Block Designed to Withstand the Conditions

Authored by: Steven Blum — Aug 30, 2011

When it comes to droppable, shockable, sockable Androids, you've got a whole slew of phones from which to choose. There's the slick Xperia Active, rugged Casio G'zOne and eye-catching Samsung XCover. Now Motorola has entered the fray with its own Motorola Defy+, and it looks like it'll be launching in the UK this September.

Unlike most of these rugged phones, the Defy doesn't look especially outdoorsy. It's got your standard, slick black design and the kind of processor speeds you'd expect from the first phone to come out of the Google-Motorola merger. We're talking Android 2.3 Gingerbread, a 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel camera, 2GB of storage and a 3.7 inch high-res display.

By launching in September, Motorola could face strong competition from Apple, which is rumored to be gunning for a September release as well for the newest iPhone. It'll also face competition from the similarly-equipped Samsung XCover, and maybe even the Xperia Active as well. Looks like dust-and-scratch-resistant phones are no longer the novelties they once were.
