Motorola Defy+ gets IP67 certification - now on pre-order in the UK

I know some of you might have wondered why this is the only time I have blogged about the Motorola Defy+, well, the phone was not yet official when first word came about it. But today, the rugged smartphone that is apparently set to succeed the original Motorola Defy have just received IP67 certification.

Clove UK, posted a blog regarding the Motorola Defy+ and says that the smartphone is soon coming in the UK. Actually, the Motorola Defy+ is already available for pre-order over at Clove UK. That is one good news, since there are not a lot of Android powered smartphones that can withstand the various forces of nature or human carelessness, well, aside from the Samsung Galaxy Xcover.
