Don’t you just love your smartphone? You take them with you everywhere, because they’re your phones, but they offer you so much more than that. You don’t need an iPod, because your phone can play music, take photos, browse the web and play movies too.
It can also get ruined relatively easily. Which really sucks, seeing as we spend so much money on them, and let’s be honest, how many of us actually bother taking out insurance on these things?
You’ve probably seen the adverts for the Motorola Defy. You know the ones where the phone survives a pool party, club night and various other phone unfriendly environments.
Well, although they are still assuring us that their phone can withstand a beating, they are now offering the Motorola Defy+ as a JCB version. You know JCB, the truck people. Not only is the phone extra rugged it’s also made with a DIY enthusiast in mind.
You get a host of apps including a spirit level, decibel meter and recorder, unit converter and something called a Theodolite, which honestly means nothing to me – yes, I could Google it, but I’ll leave that to you guys.
It has a Push to Talk function too, which lets you use the phone as a walkie talkie, which seems a bit redundant, but nonetheless fun. You can get your hands on this hardwearing device now for the rather lovely price of £260.
Not bad for a practically indestructible Android phone. You get an exceptionally long curly cabled car charger with it too!
