This week, Motorola launched the next version of this Windows Mobile Smartphone. However, after reading all the rumors, this might not be be what some people were hoping for.
The Motorola Q Pro offers new features, but these are all software related and are targeted at enterprise users. There don’t appear to be any significant changes to this device’s basic hardware.
Despite the lack of significant hardware changes in this smartphone, there will certainly be those who welcome these improvements.
"The MOTO Q PRO solution was created as a direct result of enterprise customer feedback," said Kevin Goulet, director of Product Management, Enterprise Mobility Solutions, Motorola Networks & Enterprise. "To better meet enterprise user requirements, we have bundled a package of features to enhance the Motorola Q user experience and provide added device security, document editing options, and the accessories needed to extend user mobility."
Personal firewall and intrusion detection features protect this smartphone from hackers and common attacks. Other security features include selective or complete data encryption, data wiping, and real-time event logging. The Q Pro also supports enterprise VPN solutions, as well as a password protection feature.
It also comes with software that allows users to download, view, and edit Microsoft Word documents, in addition to viewing attachments in a variety of other formats including Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, photos, and video.
The Q Pro ships with a vehicle power adapter and an extended battery for power on the go.
Direct shipment services and enterprise call center support are also included.
