Motorola DEFY appears on T-Mobile's website
The Motorola DEFY was announced only in September, but we've been pretty excited about an Android device you can drop in water or sand. The device is now live and 'Coming Soon' on T-Mobile's website, leading us to believe it's on track for a holiday release.

The DEFY is an Android 2.1 or 2.2 device with a 3.7" WVGA Gorilla Glass display. The device is also water-resistant, so using your phone in the rain or dropping it in the bath/pool/toilet won't end in tragedy. The Gorilla Glass and dust-resistance will also help users in rougher-than-average conditions. The measurements at T-Mobile indicate a 0.5" thickness, so you don't have to sacrifice a sleek form factor for rugged durability.

The DEFY isn't particularly impressive for its hardware. It is, however, a more balanced rugged smartphone than the Motorola i1. The i1 is a more purpose-built phone, meeting military standards at the expense of its features and form.
