The Motorola Defy is a new Android smartphone which offers a rugged and tough build. It is impact, dust and water resistant and comes with the famous Gorilla Glass display, like the iPhone 4.

It has very impressive hardware specifications too. It has a 3.7 inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. It is powered by an OMAP processor clocked at 800 MHz with 512 MB RAM and runs Android 2.1 Eclair with the MotoBLUR interface. It will probably get the Android 2.2 Froyo upgrade soon.

It also has a 5 MP camera with autofocus and LED flash. It comes with GPRS, EDGE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. It has a 2 GB internal ROM and supports up to 32 GB microSD cards.
