Motorola DEFY PRO splashes some ruggedness to the portrait QWERTY form factor

Although it’s not mentioned at the moment that it’ll be making a landing in the US, there’s no arguing that some people will take a liking to the Motorola DEFY PRO. In fact, aside from its obvious portrait QWERTY form factor, the DEFY PRO stands out for its ruggedized construction...

Interesting how there appears to be a market for a portrait handset with a physical keyboard - just not for RIM. Good luck to Moto.

This looks like an ugly version of a blackberry bold 9900

Okay Moto- I understand that this type of form factor requires smaller screens, but you knocked it out of the park with the slightly larger than 3" screen on the Pro and XPRT. Why go backwards?

Other than that, love it as an option. Probably a little underpowered. Pro phones tend to be, for some reason.

Is this optical trackpad in the middle or 5-way button?

I am waiting for this phone, probably next. Just hope it has at least 512MB of RAM and decent CPU. And please let it have higher resolution than the obsolete 320x240 (although when I am looking at the available pictures it is very unlikely ;-( )
