Motorola intros the RAZR-like ELECTRIFY 2 and rugged DEFY XT for U.S. Cellular
First one up to serve is the Motorola ELECTRIFY 2, the follow up successor to the original ELECTRIFY from last year, which is available online through the carrier’s web site for $199.99 right now – though, in store availability is set for Friday, August 3rd. Similar to Verizon’s DROID RAZR, the Motorola ELECTRIFY 2 has all the awesome specs to make it a standout leader amongst the carrier's existing crop.
In fact, this beauty boasts many of the exquisite elements that we find with Verizon’s DROID RAZR – like its svelte 8.4mm body, invisible splash-guard coasting, and Kevlar strong backing. Beyond that, its specs sheet is able to impress thanks to its 4.3” qHD ColorBoost display, dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, and 1080p video capture. On the software side, customers will be pleased to know it’s running Android 4.0 Ice cream Sandwich out of the box – with Motorola’s SMARTACTIONS functionality to extend its performance and battery life.
With the Motorola DEFY XT, it’s a ruggedized Android smartphone that’ll no doubt withstand some of the harshest of punishment because it’s water-resistant and dustproof. Other features of the handset include a scratch-resistant 3.7” display, single-core 1GHz processor, and a 5-megapixel camera. However, it should be noted that it’ll be flaunting Android 2.3 Gingerbread out of the box. For those interested in this one, it’ll be available for purchase online and in stores for $99.99 with a contract starting tomorrow, August 2nd.
