Motorola Wilder Can Take An Outdoor Beating

Phone companies usually don't have too much trouble coming up with outlandish device names, particularly when you're talking about Motorola. This company has a long history of capitalizing names and removing vowels wherever they feel like it, but we have to admit, their newest device is perfectly named. The Motorola Wilder is quite the unique handset. In the world of giant smart phones with wild dual core processors and lofty price tags, this device takes a very different turn. It is very clearly designed for a very specific audience, an audience that isn't afraid to take their phone outdoors and even splash around with it.


The phone boasts a 2.8 inch touchscreen, social networking integration, and FM radio tuner, and a few bundled games including the Need for Speed. There's also a 2 megapixel video camera, as well as a dual band GSM radio, MP3 player, a memory card slot, Bluetooth, headphone jack, and a shell that is both splash and dust resistant. It will be available from September for around $100 off-contract, which is dirt cheap. No Android or anything here, but for a beater phone, you could do worse.

Looks a lot better than the Motorola Defy which was similarly themed phone.

I like this phone too has plenty of the basics and could actually use a more rugged chassis for out door knock around activity.Some how they get wet occasionally which can be a pita,Good one !

Splash and dust resistant surely is not enough for many users who might be looking for a slightly more rugged phone. I don't see something like this replacing the old nextel phones for construction workers anytime soon but of course it is getting closer.

The only way it could replace the Nextel phones is if it had a walkie-talkie function built into the phone itself... I mean seriously, that function gets much usage in  old still in use Nextel phones.
