When we first reported that Motorola was readying a QWERTY variant of its popular ruggedized smartphone line, the Motorola Defy Pro, the device was still practicing its Samba moves en route to Brazil. Now it seems the Defy Pro has muscled its way to Canadian shores.

The rugged Motorola Defy Pro is available for purchase from Rogers for $275 outright. This means you don’t have to worry about being tied to the carrier for however long the mobile contract lasts. If you’re that way inclined, however, there’s always the option to purchase the phone with a two-year contract for free. Well, it’s actually priced at $0.01, but you get the point.

Aside from its tough exterior, and not to mention that it’s dust proof and water resistant, the Defy Pro comes with a physical QWERTY keyboard. Here’s a quick rundown of the rest of the specs:

  • 2.7-inch HVGA Gorilla Glass display
  • 1GHz processor
  • 5MP rear camera
  • VGA front-facing camera
  • microSD card slot
  • WiFi b/g/n
  • 1,700mAh battery
  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread

The phone still isn’t listed on the carrier’s website, but their physical stores should have stocks of the Motorola Defy Pro. Any takers for the ruggedized QWERTY phone?
