Handset maker Motorola Mobility India today announced the launch of its Android—based 3G smartphone ‘Defy’ priced at Rs 18,990.
“With all the features consumers expect in a smartphone, Defy packs advanced web browsing, entertainment and messaging capabilities as well as a design that withstands the challenges of everyday life,” Motorola Mobility India Country Head Faisal Siddiqui said in a statement.
The 3G—enabled Android handset is equipped with 3.7—inch touch screen, 5 MP camera, and expandable memory up to 32 GB.
Android is a mobile operating system, initially developed by Google and later by the Open Handset Alliance, a consortium of 47 hardware, software and telecom companies.
Being an open—source operating system, Android allows developers to design applications like games, music players and location—based services, independent of the handset type.
“Motorola Defy is dust proof and water resistant, which protects you from life’s little challenges like a sudden rain shower, spilt drink, or dropping your phone in the sand. It also features a large, resilient display that has outstanding protection against scratch damage,” the statement said.
