We have inside information that Motorola is prepping a massive launch of its Android phone the DEFY on the 6-7th of January 2011. The Defy as the name suggests defies all elements and is waterproof, dustproof and an inspiration to how all smart phones should be.

The Motorola Defy :

  • Waterproof
  • DUST Proof
  • – Gorilla Glass display
  • – Touch sensitive controls

  • – Proximity sensor for auto turn-off
  • ANDROID 2.2
  • 800MHz processor
  • 5 MP Autofocus Camera dual led Flash
  • 512 MB RAM

Can you guess the price? Well you dont have to, we have word that this death defying device will be below INR 20,000/-

Stay tuned for more news on this.


UPDATE :

The Information came directly from Motorola, There has already been a soft Launch of the device, we are expected to get the demo unit sometime this week. Will have an update shortly on why the Public launch has been delayed.

i had delayed my purchase of HTC wildefire for defy, just did not wanted to go for crappy low resolution screen of wildefire. and the next best thing HTC desire was out of my reach. motorola defy fit well in my requirement of “all goodies in 1 phone” but wont cont a bomb, but alas..

Hi Bharat,

Please, either update this with a correct date from your “source” or remove this blog. As this becomes very frustrating when you don’t reply to user comments.

awesome news… but i did read on some blog that it was launched in Kolkota for 15K !!!

Somebody please tell when this phone might be launching. I am losing My patience waiting for this Device.

Here’s what I think — assuming Motorola indeed wants to launch this device, they want to do this at the right price point keeping in mind the new market realities. The premium one pays for a smartphone has come down a lot over the past twelve months. They want to price this right, but they still have the original Milestone floating in the market selling for over Rs. 20K, even over Rs. 25K at some places. If you look at the RAM, storage, processor etc the Defy is higher spec-ed than the Milestone. I would say it is safe to… Read more »

I am a local Moto Distributor, got information this month we are getting stocks 100%, already placed the order quantity required, I am from Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. 9000986633

Could you tell us what will be the device priced at?

Abhijeet Deb
Guest

@iGyaan: Can someone your team get some update from the ‘source’ about the launch date and pricing? I almost bought an unlocked piece before I saw this article! Its already been a few days since the alleged release date. I would prefer to buy a piece without a T-Mobile or Telstra logo on it. However, it’s good to know that if it launches, it will launch with Froyo; don’t care much about MotoBlur!

Bharat Nagpal

its coming in 3 – 4 days

Abhijeet Deb

Let’s hope so. Fingers crossed!

where is the phone no info till today…………?????????????? where it is mr nagpal ji????

you say “there has already been a soft launch of the device”.

what exactly is a “soft launch”?

Gautham47
Guest

where is the defy?????????? Its 12-1-11

ChetaN
Guest

Man I am so desperately waiting for this device. There were no good android devices in the 18k range. after 13k they were directly at 23k. this device fills the gap perfectly. This phone had earpiece issues when launched abroad. guess that’s why its launch is being delayed here as they might be solving it. Hope they launch here soon. Keeping fingers crossed.

Raghunandanjv

Can anybody let us know what’s the exact status on this? I didn’t buy htc wildfire just for this phone.

Saurabh
Guest

Hey,
Its launching now on 11-1-11 definitely.
Its a Tuesday and most Motorola’s launches are on Tuesday’s in India.

Lets just keep patience for the best in the Game .:-)
