New and improved Motorola Defy heading for AT&T?
According to This Is My Next, a new and improved version of the Motorola Defy could be making its way to AT&T. The new and improved part, according to the story, would constitute a bump up from a TI OMAP 3610 processor clocked at 800MHz to a TI OMAP 3620 with the slightly faster speed of 1GHz. The other change deals with the version of the Android OS on board. The current model offers Android 2.2 while a new Motorola Defy would come with Gingerbread (Android 2.3.3) installed.

The remaining specs are said to be the same as on the original model which would mean that you could expect the new Defy to offer a 3.7 inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 854, 512MB of RAM and a rear facing 5MP camera. 2GB of internal storage is on the device while a 32GB microSD card could raise that figure to 34GB. A 1540 mAh battery fuels the handset, which is resistant to water and dust. The report shows that the "refreshed" version of the Motorola Defy is expected to work on 850 / 1900 / 2100 HSPA which has AT&T written all over it, unlike the current model which can be found at T-Mobile

Not a bad choice for someone who does not want a high-end android. You lost me at 512 mb RAM and 2GB internal storage. I wish Google would implement minimal standards that require 16GB internal and 1GB RAM with 1GHZ processor speed.
Probably as good as an iphone 3GS...possibly.

Google's open source idea seemed great at first, but it has cost them in the long run. Fragmentation, low end Android phones that seem to lag, etc. At least I can commend Microsoft's WP7 for having minimum specs that make for a smooth experience with their phones. Android isn't bad, but I think Google now understands that it has to implement some standards if they want the Android experience to be a smooth as possible.

It would be nice for there to be more durable or dust/spill resistant phones out there. Not everyone wants to buy an Otterbox.

Wipes out any hope for Defy owners to get Gb onboard :-( ... I feel with this bump up, one needs a front facing camera. GB w/o a front facing camera = one less point.
