Motorola Announces Defy Pro QWERTY model

by Laurentiu on July 10, 2012


Kicking a bit of competition for the BlackBerry, the latest of the ruggedized Android smartphones from Motorola the Defy Pro has been launched with a physical keyboard. The Motorola Defy Pro QWERTY model has so much in common with the BlackBerry in as much as looks are concerned that at first looks you can be forgiven to think it is a model from RIM’s stable.

Off late users are inclined to opt for smartphones that are designed to last. No one likes to see their contacts, messages and media simply vanish into thin air due to a minor accident such as dropping the phone in water or even sitting on it. Smartphones can simply no longer be wafer thin and fragile. Thus the ruggedized models, which were incidentally introduced by Motorola through its Defy range, are now becoming very popular. These are functional and, as Motorola has shown, an inclination retains the QWERTY keypad as some users have come to relate to. At the same time they come with the backing of the IP67 certification which ensures water and dust proof.

If they promised that shortly RAZR and RAZR Maxx users will receive a free update to Ice Cream Sandwich, Motorola could not miss the opportunity to customize a little its firmware which will reach a lot of terminals.

Google Maps Navigation

It is now official and will completely change the mobile and PND navigation market:  Google announced Google Maps Navigation for Android 2.0 devices.

It features 3D views, turn-by-turn voice guidance and automatic rerouting, but unlike most navigation systems, the Navigation was built from the ground up to take advantage of the phone’s internet connection.

And so Google’s navigation comes with recent map and business data (phone automatically gets the most up-to-date maps and business listings from Google Maps), search by voice (speak your destination instead of typing), traffic view (live traffic data over the internet), search along route (searching for a specific business along the route), satellite view (the same satellite imagery as Google Maps on the desktop) and Street View (shows the turn as you’ll see it, with the route overlaid).
