Update: The Defy will be exclusive to Telstra for 3 months (ending 28th February 2011) and will cost $600 outright

As we mentioned in the previous post, the Motorola Defy launch event/press gathering is currently underway and official details are starting to trickle out. Aussie Tech Journalist, Roulla Yiacoumi has just tweeted the official launch price & date, and they are exactly as we were told. It will be available on Telstra’s $49 cap for $0 upfront and will launch on the 30th of November.

So, who’s interested?

Motoblur = Yes
Telstra = No. $49 month including 1Gb data. Not much around better. Telstra has changed a *lot* in teh last 12 months and now are so far more competitive

Let’s see you use 2GB of data on Virgin lol – it’d take more than a month 🙂

Jokes aside – you do get a far better speed and coverage with Telstra

honestly i have never been on telstra as i wouldn’t be able to afford it so i can’t really compare. But i can say i have been on Voda and Optus, and Virgin’s speeds are no different.

I’m with Jason – Telstra’s prices are becoming a lot more competitive and their network (especially in the country) is far, far superior to anyone elses.

But then I love Motoblur, so who cares what I think right?
