Motorola has just taken the wraps off a new smartphone that will target professionals, the Motorola Pro+. This device will run Android but have a design reminiscent of a BlackBerry.
It is going to have a 3.1-inch, VGA (640 x 480) Touchscreen set above a small QWERTY keyboard. This is a design popular with business users.
The Pro+ will run Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread) in a 1GHz single-core processor. It is going to be loaded up with business-oriented software, such as Quickoffice Connect for working with Office files. It will also have Motorola’s security software.
On its feature list is 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. It’s going to come with a 4GB microSD card for storage, as well as a 5MP rear-facing camera.
Coming This Fall
The Motorola Pro+ is scheduled to debut in Europe and Asia next month. There is no word yet on a U.S. release, but Motorola says there will be versions compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile.
Pricing will depend on the carriers that offer this model, and will vary from country to country.
