Unboxing the Motorola Defy, part 1

This is the Motorola Defy, a rugged Android phone (dust-proof, water and scratch-resistant) with appealing specs (3.7″ WVGA display, 800 MHz CPU, 512 MB RAM, and 5 MP autofocus camera)…

Intrigued yet? I covered the launch of this device for Engadget at CTIA, where I submerged it in the name science – and it survived!

The lovely folks at Motorola provided me with a review unit this week, so enjoy my unboxing video, and expect pictures soon :)

Both Matthew Bennett (Sticky Traction, Nokia Daily News, US Mobile Industry) and Tony Peric (fone frenzy) joined me this time – special thanks to Tony for the editing :)

This month, we covered the Nokia N8 and its awesome camera, the T-Mobile G2/HTC Desire Z, the Samsung Galaxy S devices (Fascinate, Epic 4G, Captivate, and Vibrant), and the Samsung Wave.

Other topics include CTIA Enterprise & Applications, my annual trip to Burning Man, the Apple iPod nano, the Motorola F3, the Motorola Charm, the Motorola Droid 2, and the BlackBerry Torch.

We’re planning to do this podcast monthly from now on… Stay tuned!

This week we discussed the trip to CTIA, including the Palm Pre walkthrough, the Nokia N97 demo, the Samsung i8910 (Omnia HD), the Nokia N86, the interview with David Wood, plus a few other things (such as my HTC Touch Pro review unit)…

If things don’t make sense at one point (around 3:56), it’s because I ended up editing out a short section where the mic stopped working!
