Our friends at Clove have updated everyone on final pricing and availability information for the Motorola DEFY+. They’re expected to get their first shipment in on September 3oth and will offer the device for £246 inc. VAT. We covered the device a bit at the end of last month. It’ll be a sensible upgrade for the price with its 3.7 inch display, 1GHz processor, 5 megapixel camera and its water/dust proof chassis. All of that is topped with Corning Gorilla Glass to withstand scratches from light objects. Clove also shed more light on the recently revealed HTC Explorer, noting it would have a 1230 mAh battery, a data monitoring app and interchangeable colors for the chassis. Check out more details on both devices at their blog here and here.
