Motorola Pro+ wants to give businessmen a buzz
The Motorola Pro+ is hoping to be your business friend by offering various improvements over the original Pro. Will a sharper screen and bigger battery tempt the business-minded?
It was only in February that we laid our elegant hands on the Android phone hoping to sit sharply in a businessman's briefcase., but Moto has already updated the handset and given us the Pro+, a Qwerty keyboard
The Pro+ -- not to be confused with the
CNET UK fuel caffeine tablets of the same name -- offers various updates from its predecessor, chief of which being the screen, which is now a 3.1-inch Gorilla Glass affair. It packs a resolution of 480x640 pixels, which is the same as the new and is an improvement over the 320x480 pixels offered on the previous Pro.
The Pro+ has been loaded up with(improving on the Pro's 2.2 Froyo) so you'll have full access to the hundreds of thousands of apps on the Android Market.
Moto has also shaved a little weight off the original Pro as well as giving the battery a slight boost, although they're such slight improvements we doubt you'd actually notice it in normal use. The 1GHz processor remains the same on the new device, as does the 5-megapixel camera.
When we set our eyeballs on the the original Pro back in February, we were quite keen on the combination of the large 3.1-inch touchscreen and full Qwerty keyboard. It was very similar to a BlackBerry of course, but mimicking designs seems to be the name of the game at the moment, so we can't hold that against Moto.
The Motorola Pro+ will be available from October. Networks and prices are yet to be announced.
