U.S. Cellular and Motorola Mobility are launching two Android-powered smartphones. The Motorola Electrify 2, the next generation of the popular Electrify that runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, will be available online on August 1 and in stores on August 2. Additionally, Motorola Defy XT will be available online and in stores on August 3.
With a slim 8.4 millimeter design, Motorola Electrify 2 is Kevlar-strong and features an invisible splash-guard coating to protect from spills. The phone features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 4.3-inch ColorBoost display. The phone has a rear-facing 8 megapixel camera with LED flash and a 1080p HD camcorder. It’s also the first U.S. Cellular device to include Smartactions, a free Motorola app that can help extend battery life as well as intelligently automate routine, everyday tasks.
Motorola Defy XT is water-resistant, dustproof and comes with a scratch-resistant 3.7-inch touchscreen. The phone features a 5 megapixel camera and a front facing webcam for video chats.
