Sprint has just announced to Motorola devices designed for the business user – the XPRT and the Titanium. Both have physical QWERTY keyboards at the face, perfect for those who prefer a little tactile feel when banging out e-mails all day long, and the Motorola XPRT is the first “Android smartphone from Sprint to deliver enterprise-class security, personal productivity enhancements and international roaming.” Not too shabby.
The XPRT, presumably pronounced “expert,” is an Android 2.2 device with a 3.1-inch touchscreen that sports a 1GHz processor. It’s nice that it’s also a world phone, which comes in handy if you’re overseas on business or pleasure and stuck in an area with GSM service only. The XPRT becomes available on June 5 for $129.99 with a two-year contract.
The Motorola Titanium is the successor to last year’s Motorola i1, and it’s an Android 2.1 iDen device with Nextel Direct Connect. According to Sprint, “It features a full QWERTY keyboard and 3.1-inch touchscreen display. Built military-grade tough, Motorola Titanium is certified to Military Specification 810G for dust, shock, vibration, low pressure, solar radiation, high temperature and low temperature.” Not too bad for a rugged smartphone. Pricing and availability won’t be available until later.
