Motorola Defy+ JCB Limited Edition

The rugged Motorola Defy+ smart phone with a IP67 rating now gets a tougher new edition. Motorola in the UK is releasing a JCB edition of the device which comes with a specially designed exterior case which improves its shock resistance capabilities.

Internally it is the same as the normal Defy+ with a 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and a 3.7″ WVGA display. In addition, the Defy+ JCB Edition will get a longer 2 years warranty as opposed to the usual 1 year. Pre-installed are some tool-man apps such as torch, therodolite, spirit level and even a decibel reader. It is priced at £268.80 outright with sales starting in early December in the UK.

This isn’t the first phone from the heavy machinery company as they have a range of rugged ToughPhones that are also IP67 certified. The Toughphone tradesman is the world’s first floating Phone while the Toughphone Pro-Talker even comes with a 2 way radio. Comparing the Defy+ and the Toughphone, the Motorola version is a lot smarter and better looking without compromising its rugged credentials.
