Oprah Winfrey

Motorola and T-Mobile teased that the new Motorola Defy would be featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show today, and sure enough, she gave one of the new mid-level smartphones to everyone in her audience (in addition to a trip to Australia). This isn't the first time she's one-upped the professional smartphone nerds; she also got the Sprint Evo 4G before everybody else. It's good to be Oprah.

No word if she's picking up the contract, too. (Yeah, we're downers like that.) Watch the video after the break, if you dare. Thanks to Android Armature.

Oprah gives away a bunch of mid-level Motorola Defy Android smartphones


Urgh. I can't stand tv shows because of audiences like that. Way too much wooping and cheering. I have to say the american shows are the main culprits though.

What we have here is the giant North American hippo, this one's a female and belive you me mate she can eat you, me the phone and the audience.

Kinda looks like a tongue ring. I find it funny that she didn't mention that it is an Android phone. She's probably cluless about tech stuff.

wait it's waterproof? I should've gotten that to replace my wife's Cliq that ended up in the kiddie pool..Dammit oh well, she's got a MyTouch Slide now..

At least Oprah is helping the Android industry grow by attracting a large number of people in that audience PLUS millions of viewers at home. So long, Apple iPhone.
