First Look: Motorola XPRT (Sprint)

2:02 /

Despite a few shortcomings, the Motorola XPRT is a great alternative to the BlackBerry because of its enterprise-level features and globe-trotting capabilities.

I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for CNET.com, and this is a first look at the Motorola XPRT. This phone is available for Sprint Nextel. The Motorola XPRT is essentially Sprint's version of the Motorola Droid Pro. The hardware is almost the same except for few changes in the keyboard and the overall trim. While the Droid Pro has a hard plastic back, the XPRT has a very soft textured back. On the front the XPRT is a 3.1-inch touchscreens, very nice and cool for this, you can see here. Underneath that, you go get a full QWERTY keyboard. The keyboard as you can see here is very similar to Blackberry's keyboard, very similar to the ball keyboard in fact. Even though it's quite compact, we found it pretty easy to use because of the raised and angled keys. The Motorola XPRT comes with a scale down version of the Motoblur. It's not as interesting as other versions of Motoblur, but you do get the same resizable widgets. On the back is a 5-megapixel camera. The Motorola XPRT shows an Android 2.2 and a sleek of security features that are very at the price friendly. They include complex passports as well as a VPN client. You can also use phone with Motorola exchange Active Sync. You also get the Sprint array of applications to include Sprint mobiles, Sprint worldwide, and Sprint Nascar-football live. You also get the Sprint radio and Sprint TV. The Motorola XPRT is also Sprint's very first world phone that's based on Android. That means that Motorola XPRT has both GSM and CDMA chip set. It will work with Sprint's CMDA network in the US, but abroad you can use with any GSM network. The Motorola XPRT is available for $130 in a 2-year service agreement with Sprint Nextel. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been the first look at the Motorola XPRT.
