Motorola Mobility Introduces Water-Resistant Motorola DEFYTM XT Smartphone

With a 3.7-inch scratch-resistant display, sharp camera and fast Web-browsing speeds, Motorola DEFY XT is the ultimate smartphone for your active lifestyle.

Thanks to the new Motorola DEFYTM XT, brought to you by Motorola Mobility, you’ll never again ask, “Should I bring my phone with me?” Motorola DEFY XT is the perfect, go-anywhere companion for your active lifestyle. Whether you’re out on the town, hiking a trail or just a little accident prone, Motorola DEFY XT’s water-resistance, dust-proofing, and scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass display means it can take whatever you throw at it. And at a price that won’t clean out your wallet.

With its 3.7-inch high-resolution display Motorola DEFY XT takes crystal-clear touchscreens to the next level of durability. You can check email, text friends, play games, watch videos and browse the Web from pretty much anywhere. And don’t worry about battery life. Motorola DEFY XT comes with an extra powerful 1700mAh battery for up to 9.5 hours of talk time, which means you’ll stay entertained and informed all day and into the night.

Motorola DEFY XT’s 5-megapixel camera means you can document all of your daily adventures with super-sharp clarity, while a front-facing camera helps you stay in touch with video conferencing. And with its pre-loaded social networking apps, you can share those photos, or update the world on your whereabouts, in a matter of seconds.

This phone isn’t just brawn – Motorola DEFY XT also has the brains to know what matters to you most and how to get it to you fast. With MotoSwitch, your smartphone learns who you talk to and which apps you use and keeps all of that information front and center. The Social Graph feature gives you easy and fast access to the people who really matter. It learns who’s most important to you and uses that information to populate the home screen. The more frequently you communicate with someone, the bigger their icon becomes. The Activity Graph gives you quick and easy access to your favorite apps, automatically changing to reflect the apps you use the most.

Plus, because Motorola DEFY XT is an Android™-powered smartphone, you’ll have immediate access to over 500,000 apps and games on Google Play™.

“Our original Motorola DEFY was a hit all over Asia. Motorola DEFY XT takes life-proof to the next level with a sharper camera, bigger screen and faster processing power,” said Robert van Tilburg, senior regional sales director, South Asia, Motorola Mobility. “Now you can stay connected all day long, through every adventure, and share your fun with everyone who matters most to you.”
