Motorola’s Defy smartphone was a great example of an ultra-durable, portable device made for camping, trekking, and more. With the release of the Defy Satellite Link, the company has taken its rugged smartphone game to the next level with a new, even more rugged communication device.
Building on the original Defy’s rugged, waterproof and dustproof chassis, the Defy Satellite Link is a unique-looking Bluetooth device that includes built-in GPS, Wi-Fi, and cellular connectivity. If you need an update to your phone but you’re out in the middle of nowhere, you can use the Satellite Link to dial out.
The compact, potentially lifesaving device, can be used to send messages as well as to check-in via the built-in GPS functionality. Alternatively, you can send out SOS for help. We expect the same functionality will also show up on the new Motorola Defy 2, the next iteration of the Defy smartphone, which will debut sometime next year.
Available in April for $99, the Defy Satellite Link is currently up for pre-order registration now from Motorola’s website.
