Motorola, T-Mobile


Call Peg Bundy and get your Bon-Bons in a bowl because Motorola is unveiling its new phone on Oprah today. The Motorola Defy, a U.S. exclusive to T-Mobile, has just been announced by Motorola and will makes its official debut today on the season premiere of the Oprah Show.

The Defy sports a 3.7-inch touchscreen and a strong exterior capable of resisting scratches, dust, and water. The phone comes equipped with MOTOBLUR but Motorola hasn’t yet declared which version of Android its running. However, the sign-up page shows the image of it running a keyboard very similar to what’s seen on the Droid X, so I’d assume that it’s at least 2.1. The Defy also offers CrystalTalk Plus for improved call quality, dual microphones for filtering out background noise, Adobe Flash Lite, and DLNA for sharing media content with other devices.

No exact date for general release has been given, but T-Mobile promises to have it for sale in time for the holiday season.

The Defy will be shown off on today’s season premiere of Oprah Winfrey’s 25th and final year on the Oprah Show. That’s not surprising because Oprah is no stranger to Android. She had an entire episode full of myTouch product placements and was sporting an EVO on TV long before must of us had it.
