Motorola Defy Debuts on Oprah
Today marks the premiere of the farewell season for "The Oprah Winfrey Show" when the queen of daytime talk shows will debut Motorola's latest Android phone, the Defy. The smartphone is named for its rugged design that's resistant to the elements and scratch-resistant, touted as the phone that's "equipped to withstand all that life throws your way" by Motorola, a fitting message for Oprah's last season.
The Defy runs Android 2.1 operating system, features Motorola's Motoblur with integrated social media, automatic syncing and recovery, a 3.7-inch high resolution edge-to-edge display touchscreen (no physical keyboard), 5-megapixel camera with flash, and built-in Adobe Lite Flash support for full web browsing.
The Defy is scratch and water resistant as well as dust proof with a dual microphone system that filters out background noise. The Defy is compatible with other Digital Living Network Alliance devices so users can stream content to HDTVs, game consoles and PCs in the DLNA network.
The Motorola Defy is expected to be available exclusively to T-Mobile USA customers in time for the holidays, according to a Motorola statement. But few would be surprised if everyone in Oprah's audience today received the Defy in one of her celebrated giveaways.
