Motorola DEFY lands on Telecom XT today
Motorola DEFY is a slim, pocketable Android smartphone that comes equipped with advanced web browsing capabilities and a 3.7” high-resolution touch screen display that provides edge-to-edge views of your favorite photos, videos and websites.

The Motorola DEFY will be available exclusively on Telecom NZ from 28 April 2011. The device will retail at $799 RRP and be available online at Telecom Mobile Store or through Telecom stores and dealers.

“DEFY has been designed to handle everything an adventurous life in New Zealand can throw your way,” said Timo Brouwer, Managing Director, Motorola ANZ and South Pacific. “With all the features consumers expect in a smartphone, DEFY packs advanced web browsing, entertainment and messaging capabilities, to keep you entertained now the nights are drawing in, as well as a design that withstands the challenges of everyday life.”

Telecom Chief Marketing Officer, Kieren Cooney notes the Defy is a good example of the kind of device that Telecom’s XT network was built for: "With XT, we've invested heavily to build New Zealand's smartphone network - empowering Kiwi’s to take the internet with them wherever they go. The Defy is the perfect partner for this, as now you can take the internet with you, even into places where there's a bit of rough and tumble.”

Motorola DEFY is water, dust and scratch resistant, protecting you from life’s little challenges like some unexpected drizzle or spilt drink – the DEFY can keep up with whatever you want to do, whether that’s mountain biking the St James cycle trail or sailing on Auckland harbour. It also features a large, resilient display that has outstanding protection against scratch damage. CrystalTalk PLUS vanquishes noisy environments with two microphones which intelligently filter out background noise and amplify your voice, so you don't have to shout.

Motorola DEFY features the latest version of Motorola’s MOTOBLUR, which makes it even easier to manage all of your emails, messages and social updates in one easy place with the additions of filtering, resizable widgets, added corporate security and a versatile battery manager.

An Adobe® Flash® 10.1 enabled browser and 3.7” WVGA screen allow users to view more of the Web than standard browsers. Create your own entertainment with the 5-megapixel camera with flash, digital zoom and auto focus that lets users capture the best of their social life.

Motorola DEFY also acts as a 3G mobile hotspot1 to connect up to five WiFi® enabled devices, enabling a mobile hub of productivity. DEFY is Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA)-enabled to stream, store and share content with compatible devices around the home like HDTVs, game consoles and PCs.
