Looks like U.K. retail shops are getting busier each day with phone makers ramping up efforts in releasing smartphones to meet consumer demands, and local store rivalry for “first to offer” titles heating up, which brings us to the rugged Motorola DEFY+ appearing on retail sites for pre-order.
Late last month, we reported that Motorola Mobility announced that the DEFY+ would be available in the U.K. this month, and online retail shops now posting pre-order pricing details should suffice as confirmation of its arrival.
The IP67-certified DEFY+ is dust proof and waterproof (lasts for 30 minutes underwater, up to one-meter depths only).
Clove UK currently offers the DEFY+ at £205 (£246 including VAT), but the retailer notes that details of official pricing and availability is subject to change after confirmation, and the first stock will expectedly arrive late this month.
Expansys lists the DEFY+ for pre-order, but notes that it will not charge credit cards or deliver the device without further confirmation from customers to proceed with the purchase after stocks arrive.
For a quick recap, the DEFY+ sports a 3.7-inch touchscreen at 480 x 854 pixels, 1 GHz single-core processor, 512 MB RAM, 1 GB ROM, 2 GB internal storage with microSD slot for up to 32 GB (2 GB card bundled), and 5-Megapixel AF rear camera with LED flash.
