During the beginning of May, Motorola and Sprint officially unveiled the business class Motorola XPRT (pronounce it as ‘Expert’) smartphone along with the ruggedized Motorola Titanium. As promised earlier, Motorola XPRT is now available to purchase at all Sprint stores for $129.99 on a two-year agreement with the carrier. The release date of the Moto Titanium handset is still unknown.
A few days back, we heard the rumors that Motorola XPRT will be landing pre-installed with Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS on it. But unfortunately, this phone runs on the out-dated Android 2.2 Froyo with the latest version of MOTOBLUR UI. The XPRT is a world phone and offers a BlackBerry-styled portrait QWERTY keyboard, resembling the Verizon branded Motorola Droid Pro handset. The device comes with a 3.1-inch HVGA 320×480 display, a 1GHz processor with 512MB RAM. There’s a 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash on the back side of the device. Other specs include 3G Mobile Hotspot capability, Bluetooth 2.1 EDR1, Wi-Fi b/g/n connectivity, GPS, 2GB ROM, micro-SD slot with 2GB card included and support for up to 32GB of total memory. It is powered by a 1860mAh Lithium-ion battery providing talk time of up to 9 hours.
Interested folks can now buy the Motorola XPRT handset here at Sprint Online Stores (hit the link) for $129.99 on a two-year contract for Sprint’s new customers, and the existing customers.
