Motorola has launched the Defy “summer-proof” Android handset in Australia and will contribute a batch for an Oprah giveaway when the talkshow host lands Down Under in December.

The vendor has marketed the phone as water, bump, dust and scratch resistant.

The handset was already part of a giveaway on The Oprah Winfrey Show in the US in September.

All 300 studio audience at Australian Oprah’s show will also be treated to their own Motorola Defy, according to Motorola marketing director, Barry Smyth.

Defy runs on the Google Android 2.1 operating system and Motorola’s Motoblur, a social media aggregation tool. A 3.7-inch corning gorilla glass display makes it scratch resistant.

Plastic covers any input slots on the Defy to protect it from water and dust but users should take note that if water enters an uncovered port, the phone will likely to be water damaged.

It comes with the standard Google Apps for Android and access to the Android Market.

The phone carries a five-megapixel camera and 2GB internal memory.

External memory is expandable upto 32GB.

Motorola Defy is exclusive to Telstra for three months and is available on a $49 plan with 1GB data.
