Motorola Announces DEFY™ in Malaysia, a Smartphone Built to Survive your Active Lifestyle

Motorola Mobility, a subsidiary of Motorola, Inc., announced the launch of Motorola DEFY™ in Malaysia. 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.

Motorola DEFY is water and scratch resistant as well as dust proof, protecting you from life’s little challenges like a splash from the pool, spilt drink, or dropping your phone in the sand. It also features a large, resilient display made of Corning Gorilla Glass™ which has outstanding resistance to impact and 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.

“DEFY has been designed to handle everything an active lifestyle can throw your way,” said Robert van Tilburg, senior regional sales director for Motorola Mobility in South Asia. “With all the features consumers expect in a smartphone, DEFY packs advanced web browsing, entertainment and messaging capabilities as well as a design that withstands the challenges of everyday life and can go with you everywhere you want to go.”

An Adobe® Flash® Lite® 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. 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. DEFY also acts as a 3G mobile hotspot to connect up to five WiFi® enabled devices, so you turn practically anywhere into a hive of productivity.

The Connected Music Player brings song lyrics to your songs and enables you to discover, stream and identify music, right from your phone. Choose from over 100,000 applications, widgets and games on Android Market™ and enjoy access to Google™ services including Google Search™, Google Maps™ and Gmail™.
