If you’re looking for a solid Android handset with a physical QWERTY keyboard, Motorola has a few nice offerings on the table. The Fire, the Droid Pro, and the XPRT all have their strengths, and another QWERTY keyboard-equipped smartphone will soon join the ranks. Today, Motorola announced the Motorola Pro+, an Android device catered toward the enterprise.
As far as specs go, this one seems geared toward the heavy messenger and probably isn’t a good fit for someone who does any amount of gaming or video playback. Its 3.1-inch display will be great for basic use with a solid 480×640 pixels of resolution, but in terms of size it just won’t cut it on the gaming/video front. However, the Pro+ display comes equipped with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass, so you can rest assured if you drop it a few times at least the screen will remain in tact. The phone touts a 1GHz processor and runs Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
Other specs include a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and autofocus, along with 4GB of internal storage and 512MB of RAM. If that’s not enough space, microSD card support is included for up to 32GB of extra storage. Unfortunately, it looks like MotoBlur will also be along for the ride, which means you’ll get more social networking than you can likely handle. But hey, some people like that.
In terms of carrier support, AT&T and T-Mobile should be getting their own versions of the device (though we’re still awaiting those announcements), while Motorola claims that the Pro+ will also be available in Europe and Asia in October.
