Motorola's new smartphone, the Defy, is built tough. When all its protective covers are securely closed, this device is dust-proof as well as scratch and water resistant.
"The Defy was designed to protect it from life's little challenges such as a sudden rain shower or a drop in the sand," the company said in a statement.
Powered by Android 2.1, the smartphone weighs 118g and has a 3.7in touchscreen that is ideal for viewing pictures, videos and websites.
The Defy supports the full suite of Google services such as Google Docs for working on documents on the go.
The phone, which has a 5-megapixel camera, also features CrystalTalk plus, a noise reduction filter that allows users to hear their callers clearly even in loud environments.
The phone can also stream files such as photos and videos to a device that supports DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) such as HDTVs.
Music lovers will appreciate the phone's Connected Music Player feature which can automatically download lyrics to their favourite tunes.
Defy can also double up as a portable wireless hotspot and allows up to five other devices to connect to it to surf the Internet via 3G.
More applications for the phone can be downloaded from the Android Market online. However, currently only free applications are available for download.
