Motorola Wilder: New splash and dust-resistant phone set for July release

Motorola has announced its latest phone, and it’s a touchscreen-packing feature phone.

Like its slightly expensive brother, the Motorola Defy, the Wilder is pushing its tough image, and is both dust and slash resistant with a rubberised frame to protect it even more.

The phone comes with an FM radio tuner, a video-recorder that also takes two-megapixel stills, although it has a 2.8-inch touchscreen, it’s of the resistive sort.

There’s several embedded games, like Need For Speed and Tetris, and a secondary notification display just below the main screen. The phone will arrive in black and yellow styles- sorry, that’s liquorice and saffron or liquorice and dark grey.

Alongside the music and video player, the Wilder’s storage is expandable by microSD up to 32GB.

It’ll be interesting to see how the £50 (on pay-as-you-go) Wilder stacks up against the recent competitively priced smartphones, like Vodafone’s in-house Smart. (Which is now only £10 more at £60)
