Despite obvious distraction in the form of a rather large Google takeover yesterday, Motorola still found time to announce a Defy refresh, upping the speed of the rugged smartphone by 25 per cent.
The Motorola Defy+ now packs a 1GHz processor, which not only puts it 200MHz ahead of its predecessor, but also keeps one foot in front of Samsung's durable and similarly-specced Galaxy Xcover, announced last week.
The multi-element enduring Defy+ shares quite an alikeness with its older brethren in that it packs a 3.7in touchscreen with a scratch-resistent Corning Gorilla Glass cover, a 5Mp snapper and 2GB of storage.
While the Android OS has here been updated to 2.3 Gingerbread, the Defy+ still sports the company's front-end, Motoblur, which includes a customisable homescreen and easy access social network widgets.
The Motorola Defy+ will be out, come rain or shine, sometime this autumn. ®
crackrdbycracku: Hi all,
I am having a hard time putting video files on my Defy.
I am using drag and drop to get the files on the phone on as Motorola Media Link would take hours.
Once the files are on it says 'This file cannot be played or displayed".
Any suggestions of a file converter?
Don't be fooled by Motorola's tactics, the DEFY+ is pretty much EXACTLY the same as the DEFY, including the processor, which has just been clocked to 1GHz instead of 800MHz, which you can easily do on your current Defy. Heck, if you have a red lensed Defy you can even get official Gingerbread running (and for all us green-lensed there's CM7 :) Only actual difference I can see is a larger battery for the Defy+ (1700mAh vs 1540mAh)

kobiak: alright, weird situation.
I've just came from Telecom store where I tried Telecom SIM in my UK defy. What i've got is an "Emergency calls only" message in status bar. Checked settings: 3G Only enabled. Tried manually set Telecom NZ as network, got a message that I can not register my SIM this time. So me and helpful lady in the store decided it's not compatible with Telecom, checked IMEI - looks like not compatible.
However, on Monday I've tested my mate's Telecom SIM and all looked fine, I was not cleaver enough to make any test txt or call :( and my mate is off to overseas for 3 months :( Don't have any other access to Telecom SIM to make more test, maybe it's mine custom ROM which I updated this morning... or any other issue :(
I was so tempted to make a switch and now meh :(
Maybe some one have a spare Telecom SIM I can borrow for a day or two in Auckland? I'm on Ponsonby during the working hours :) or maybe someone can definitely answer me if he/she uses imported defy from clove or any other shop on Telecom network?
