    I want a defy because of the waterproof, and dust specs, but I want the Atrix because of the POWER!

    Also I would like to know what everyone thinks the price on ebay will drop to after release? As the current price is $750 which is just crazy.

    Different target markets for both of the phones. The Defy is geared towards businesses that can use the phone on the fields without worrying that a drop may break it. It has support for Corporate calendar, email and contacts (Exchange 2003 and 2007). This is an area where Android is lacking. Also, you can do a complete remote wipe (including SD card I believe) if the phone gets lost. There are some other security features that corporations requires for their business phones.

    I will relate this to you all about my Motorola Atrix that was 2 weeks old at the time and you can use the knowledge as you see fit. This actually happened and I still have and use the phone as is.

    I dropped it (unawares) into a pond of about 10 inches of water. It was there for a minimum of 25 minutes which was how long we were looking for it. Thank God it landed right side up or else we would never have found it. I asked one of the people helping me to try to call it so we could see if we could hear it ringing. after the 3rd try, i saw it in the water with the display lit up showing me that I had an incoming call. 25 MINUTES IN THE POND at this point. I tore off the cover, stripped it, dried it out and 4 hours later it was and still is fully functional with absolutely no effects from its attempted drowning. This phone is watertight. All i had on it was a screen protector that i had to replace cause water got up underneath it.

    You got lucky. This is dangerous advice, as the Atrix is not a waterproof phone at all.

    25 minutes? Really? Receiving call under water?

    Yea if anyone believes this, I also have some beach front property in WACO, TX that could be yours for a low low price.
