Rumor: Slightly Tweaked Motorola Defy+ Headed to AT&T

Word on the street is that Motorola is tweaking the design and internal specifications of The Defy, a T-Mobile handset released in late 2010.  One such rumored change pertains to the network bands; As it appears, the new model will be supported by AT&T and/or Canadian carriers this time around.

The guys at This Is My Next are reporting that this new Defy+ will run Android 2.3 and feature  a 1GHz OMAP 3620 processor, with PowerVR.  Aside from that, everything else looks to remain largely untouched.  Definitely not a vast improvement over its predecessor, but something we’re sure AT&T would be happy to offer.  Given the “Defy” moniker, we’re expecting this to be a rugged device capable of withstanding the extreme temperatures, drops, and dust.
