wow.. hope that this will be available in the philippines... will be waiting for this!!
Can we try to get the Main disadvantages which GSMArena had found on the old Defy answered from Motorola ?
Android 2.1 is an outdated OS version
Limited storage for installing apps
No smart dialing
No HD video recording
No DivX video support out of the box
Equalizer controls are not within the music player
No secondary video-call camera
Gingerbread ROMs have leaked for the existing Defy, not to mention a near-perfect CM7 port (which is based on 2.3.4) and the CPU can easily be OCed to 1GHZ (the 3630 it uses is, I believe actually under-clocked to 800MHz).
So to say this new model addresses the short-comings of the original is a tad misleading since those so-called short-comings don't really exist.
i have a feeling this will be the exact same defy but with an OC and Gingerbread.. my wife has the defy OC'ed to 1ghz and it runs flawlessly, and bettry consumption hasnt changed, just more stable
f*ck, I just bought one :) Although for much less than 300 euros of course.
What about the battery? better processor will need more energy.
Is it OMAP3630 or 3610? Does it have a dedicated GPU? Gingerbread and 1Ghz = sweeter than before ;-)
