A limited-edition version of the Motorola Defy+ smartphone, built with exceptional protection for anyone operating in construction and engineering sectors or who work in the rugged outdoors, is offered by Motorola Mobility and JCB.

The handset is sheathed in a patented visco-elastic protective sleeve with re-entrant geometry and it has a scratchproof Gorilla Glass touch-screen.

For construction site and outdoor workers, the handset comes loaded with a set of JCB productivity apps, including a spirit level, theodolite, decibel meter and recorder, torch, unit converter, calculator and DIY store locator.

“We’re thrilled to be working with JCB on this bespoke Motorola Defy+ device”, commented Victoria McManus, UK marketing director for Motorola Mobility. “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.”

The phone runs the Android 2.3 operating system and is equipped with a full range of other smartphone features, including a 5-megapixel camera and a microSD card slot. Also included is push-to-talk functionality which allows the handset to operate as a walkie-talkie, via a
suitable service.

The Motorola Defy+ JCB Edition also includes a car charger with an extra-long curly cable.
