If you’re in the market for an Android smartphone that’s dust-proof and water-resistant, the Motorola Defy may just be your only choice at the moment (at least in the UK). That’s probably both interesting and sad, but it’s the way things are.
And while the Defy was never a high-end device in terms of specs, it wasn’t the cheapest midranger either. Now since it’s become a bit old, its price keeps on dropping. We’ve seen it go for £251.99 back in March, and well known online mobile retailer Clove has done one better than even that.
Clove now offers the Motorola Defy for just £234, VAT included. So if you don’t especially mind a device not running the latest and greatest version of an operating system, you should probably go for it. Especially since at this price it’s quite a good deal.
The Motorola Defy will arrive with Android 2.1, but you can update it to Android 2.2 Froyo as soon as you receive it. The Defy has an 800 MHz processor, a 5 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and VGA (640×480) video recording, a 3.7-inch 854×480 capacitive touchscreeen with Gorilla Glass, 2 GB of internal storage space, microSD card support, 512 MB of RAM, 7.2 Mbps HSDPA, 2 Mbps HSUPA, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth, GPS, a 3.5 mm headset jack, and a 1540 mAh battery.
