Motorola Defy passes waterboarding exercise with flying colors

Motorola Defy passes waterboarding exercise with flying colors
Rugged phones so far never cease to amaze us with their ungodly looks, and old school operating systems. It was a race to the bottom, until Motorola started outing a rugged Android line. After the ho-hum i1 (in terms of specs, not endurance), Motorola decided to up the ante with the Motorola Defy, which is not only IP67-certified, but also a looker.

IP67 means it can withstand submerging in water up to three feet for 30 minutes, and come out unscathed. But don't take our word for it, this has already been tested at the CTIA show, where Motorola provided the phone for dunking at will. Whew, rubber duckies are becoming increasingly complex.

It's a cool phone, motorblur is a drag though. If a stock froyo root can be run on this bad boy, I'll be all over it.
