Priced at £279 sim-free, the Defy+ is based on the Gingerbread version of Android 2.3
JCB has launched its own limited edition of the Motorola’s popular Defy+ smartphone in the UK.
Priced at £279 sim-free, the Defy+ is based on the Gingerbread version of Android 2.3 on a 1GHz processor, with a 2GB storage and 5MP camera with Flash and autofocus and a higher capacity battery than the original Defy+.
A 3.7" 480 x 854 pixel display coated with Gorilla Glass makes makes up the screen
The JCB version adds six tools, including a spirit level, torch and decibel reader and a special protective sleeve – plus walkie talkie features.
Manufacturers will market the existing Motorola Defy+ as ‘Lifeproof’.
The phone sports a JCB logo, with an outer ‘sleeve’ that is said to be more damage-proof and water-resistant.
The protective sleeve is an addition in the new version.
Motorola Mobility’s UK Marketing Director Victoria McManus said Motolora Mobility is thrilled to be working with JCB on this bespoke Motorola DEFY+ device.
"The unique protective sleeve will pull on JCB’s years of expertise in the construction industry to help us reach a new audience who we know are in need of a life and work proof handset," added McManus
