T-Mobile's Motorola DEFY has dropped with a bump onto the SlashGear test bench, but we're not too concerned: after all, this particular smartphone is one of the few ruggedized Android handsets around. You wouldn't necessarily know it to look at it, however, since Motorola has managed to avoid the over-rubberized look so many rugged devices suffer from. Still, we thought we should get the main challenges out of the way first, so check out the wet entrance the DEFY makes after the cut.
