Motorola Defy arrives at Carphone Warehouse

Mobile phone reseller Carphone Warehouse has just taken stock of the new tough Motorola handset, the Defy.

The Motorola Defy is now being sold with the handset vendor on both T-Mobile and Orange contracts, starting from £25 and £30 a month tariffs.

T-Mobile's £25 a month plan is accompanied by 600 minutes, a 500 text message allowance with unlimited landline use or 900 minutes and a 500 text message allowance - with a further option for, 600 minutes, 500 text messages and an unlimited Internet package.

Orange's £25 a month tariffs start with 600 minutes, with unlimited text messages or 300 minutes and the same text message bundle only with a 750MB data allowance.

Moto Defy is a handset that can cope with life's little knocks and scrapes in a much more resilient way, than other phones.

The Motorola Defy is water resistant and dust proof, where getting sand in the phone, spilling some drink or being in the rain won't render the phone useless and unusable - according to the manufacturer.

The mobile has an IP rating of 67, which means it's both dust tight and can be immersed in 1 metre of water whilst still being operable - where other mobiles that pride themselves on durability aren't as invulnerable.

Defty is accompanied by a Corning Gorilla 3.7-inch touch screen display, which is also scratch resilient to a degree and aids in the handset's toughness as a whole.

The phone is run from Google's mobile Android 2.1 ‘Éclair' OS, with their own MotoBlur overlay to the platform that brings in social networking, messaging and email feeds on to the home screen whilst offering up security measures too.
