It looks like Motorola is in a press release mood this morning. After the big news of Moto Mobility being bought out by Google, they have decided to give the world a shiny new phone to look at. This release is showing off the Defy+, a new Gingerbread device from Motorola. This is a sequel to the Motorola Defy.

The Defy+ is advertised as Moto’s latest “life proof” smartphone. If that sounds like crazy marketing speak to you, then you are probably right. However, it does come sporting an impressive set of features that would make me recommend it to my klutziest of friends. The Defy+ is advertised as water resistant, dust proof, and sports the amazing Gorilla Glass from Corning.

The rest of the specs on the Defy+ aren’t half bad either. While it’s no dual core power device, it would be great for the teenager in your life. The specs are:

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread
  • 1GHz Processor
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 3.7-inch Screen
  • 5MP camera with flash
  • 2GB internal storage
  • 2GB microSD (can take up to 32GB)

Like I said, it’s not a power phone, but its no real slouch either. Motorola also advertised a suite of accessories that includes all the usual suspects, like a dock and bluetooth headset. The “life proof” device will be available in Asia, Europe and Latin America starting in early fall.
