Sprint intros Motorola XPRT and Motorola Titanium QWERTY Android phones
Sprint has surprisingly announced two new Android handsets made by Motorola: Motorola XPRT and Motorola Titanium. One of them – the Motorola XPRT – is not really new, because it’s just a renamed Motorola Droid Pro (which is available from Verizon Wireless since last year).
Both handsets have QWERTY keyboards and Sprint is targeting “professionals” with them.
Available starting June 5 for $129 on contract, the Motorola XPRT will come with Android 2.2, a 3.1 inch HVGA touchscreen display, MotoBlur UI, Wi-Fi, 3G Mobile Hotspot capability, GPS, 5MP camera, and a 1GHz processor.
The Motorola Titanium is slightly smaller than the XPRT, although its touchscreen display has the same size and resolution (3.1 inches, HVGA). The Titanium is Sprint’s second Android handset to feature Push-to-Talk capabilities (after the Motorola i1). Unfortunately, it runs Android 2.1 Éclair, and Sprint says nothing about a possible upgrade to 2.2 or 2.3.
The Titanium is “certified to Military Specification 810G for dust, shock, vibration, low pressure, solar radiation, high temperature and low temperature.” It has Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 5MP camera. Sprint didn’t say when the smartphone will be available for purchase.
