BlackBerry-esque Motorola DEFY PRO coming to Canada via Rogers

BlackBerry-esque Motorola DEFY PRO coming to Canada via Rogers
Earlier this month, the Motorola DEFY PRO was launched in Brazil. Thanks to the physical QWERTY keyboard oriented in portrait mode, the Motorola DEFY PRO has a strong resemblance to a BlackBerry model, but adds IP67 certification which means it is resistant to spills and dust. The Gorilla Glass display is resistant to scratches. Motorola and Rogers believe that Brazilians shouldn't be the only ones allowed to own the device, so the Motorola DEFY PRO is coming to Canada as a Rogers exclusive.

The Motorola DEFY PRO offers a 2.7 inch touchscreen made, as we previously pointed out, from Gorilla Glass and is built to take all the abuse that someone with an active lifestyle heaps upon his smartphone. Speaking of active lifestyles, the Motorola DEFY PRO has a special dashboard that helps you track specific outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and a daily workout. There is both a 5MP rear-facing camera and a VGA shooter on front for self-portraits and video chat. Android 2.3 is installed.

Besides the full physical QWERTY keyboard, the Motorola DEFY PRO has what the manufacturer calls "a high capacity battery" along with Motorola's Battery Manager designed to leave the lights on longer. The phone, which will be sold right in BlackBerry's backyard, will be available at Rogers sometime later this summer. There is no word yet on what the price is going to be.
