Moto Defy to reach T-Mobile USA by end of year

Motorola today quickly confirmed a North American version of the Defy for T-Mobile. The ruggedized Android phone will ship by the holidays and will get an unusual debut today on the Oprah Winfrey Show. It's so far characterized as a US exclusive for the Americna carrier.

The Defy is one of the first touch-only phones to be designed with resistance to dust, scratching and water, and is also the fastest with an 800MHz TI OMAP chip. It runs Android 2.1 with the full Motoblur social networking layer on top and currently only supports Flash Lite for a plugin. As a smartphone it has a typical 3.7-inch display, a five-megapixel camera, GPS and Wi-Fi, but its outdoor-focused design gives it a dual microphone that reduces wind noise and other background sounds during a call.

T-Mobile hasn't priced the phone, but its feature set should put it below $200 on contract.
