“We’re thrilled to be working with JCB on this bespoke Motorola Defy+ device,” said Victoria McManus, UK marketing director, Motorola Mobility

“The unique protective sleeve will pull on JCB’s years of expertise in the construction industry to help us reach a new audience who we know are in need of a life and work proof handset.”

Water and scratch resistant, as well as dustproof, the handset has push-to-talk walkie-talkie features, as well as more standard innards like a 1GHz processor, 5MP camera, 3.7 inch touch screen and 2GB of built-in storage.

Available now, priced at £259.99, the Motorola Defy+ JCB Edition runs Android version Gingerbread in an IP67 certified chassis, making it as tough as nails. Desgined to take a battering, it comes with a patented visco-elastic protective sleeve with re-entrant geometry making it more than a match for the rough-and-tumble of a building site.
