T-Mobile Releases “Black” Motorola Defy

Coming in under our radar was the launch of the Motorola Defy in Black, not to be confused with the current Defy model which has a White shell. This black model has a completely blacked out body (did I mention it’s black) hence the Black moniker. Right now the Motorola Defy in Black is on sale via a web-only special on T-Mobile.com for just $49.99. The price is good through September 1st but this is a web-only color so you’ll have to order online if a Blacked out Motorola Defy has been on your shopping list.

    Why? Is it because I’m black? LMAO.
    Color variation is cool, but I don’t get it as to why?? I didn’t know the DEFY was that popular to trigger bringing on another color variation.

      It was probably popular enough to trigger a second production run, and they opted to go with a different color to get some more attention. Hopefully the known issues were addressed.

    DEFY users tend to love their phone. When I added one of my daughters to my plan, she chose the DEFY of all the phones available, because it fits her active lifestyle. I bought a Cliq 2 for another daughter, and she totally envies her sister’s DEFY – since she spends a lot of time backpacking, hiking, and – well – to be honest, dropping her phone. If I had the money, I’d pay full price for another DEFY.

      Check eBay. I bought one used for $180. The ringer/loudspeaker wasn’t working, and I fixed it in about 10 minutes. They routinely go for $250 or less fully functional, though. You can probably get some money for the Cliq 2.

    The “standard” (black/white) DEFY is called DEFY Black Linen while the new one is simply DEFY Black.

    The DEFY Black is the “standard” version in the UK.

    I noticed this when they changed the name of my DEFY in the OLAM system to “Black Linen” But I didn’t say anything of course.

    Took the Defy (the original) to the beach. Let me tell ya…that thing holds up to sand and water quite well. I didn’t know that at first, but that was a selling point for my friend who is on my account and she LOVES that feature most of all.

    waited 2 years for a UMA ANDROID.

    got mine at 10am on november 3rd.

    drove 80 miles to get it.

    color of the box doesn’t make much difference to me.

    the thing just does everything good, oops, i mean great.

    since the 2.2 upgrade it’s even better.

    yes, i am a fanboy at age 66.

    only color i’d trade up for is dayglo orange, so i could see it better.
