Motorola XPRT

Motorola Pax To Be a Dual-Core BlackBerry Killer!

Just hitting the wire is what our sources are calling the Motorola PAX. This will be a dual-core phone with a 3.5" screen but also a dedicated hardware keyboard in a candy bar shape -- no slider here. Basically this is an upgraded Motorola Droid Pro, or a Motorola XPRT we have seen it called as of late. To get an idea of the XPRT here is our full review.

Motorola XPRT Review

Welcome to the second iteration of Motorola's Android business phone for the portrait typing of emails, calendar scheduling, document work, and of course, web browsing. This device is made to be working with the keyboard as much as the touchscreen, and in many cases more of the former. The first look at this device (or an earlier edition of it, if you will,) was the DROID Pro, a Verizon joint. The similarities are immense, but the battery is much, much larger. That and this one's just better because the back is rubbery and textured.

Motorola XPRT Hands-On and Unboxing

If you'll recall, a few weeks ago we got the opportunity to hang out with the fine folks at Motorola in New York City at an event that played host to several new devices, one of them being the handset you're about to see again right this minute. This is the Motorola XPRT, an updated version of what was released several months ago on Verizon as the DROID Pro, a device who's BlackBerry-comparing review you can see over on our sister-site SlashGear. What you're going to see here is a very similar device with a slightly different case and insides: a patterned back, rounder corners, and some carrier-specific apps inside.

What you're about to look at is a hands-on look at a device that's existed in a slightly different form-factor for several months, dating all the way back to 2010, in fact, having then been released as the DROID Pro on a carrier you'll certainly be able to guess from that name. This new version has an ever-so-slightly improved user interface, an ever-so-slightly improved set of hardware, and just a LITTLE tweak to the battery. Actually quite a significant tweak to the battery. Let's have a look, shall we?

Motorola XPRT Announced, Gigantic Battery in Tow

You may remember from a few months ago a phone by the name of DROID Pro. This was an Android phone that essentially everyone familiar with the situation called the BlackBerry killer. In fact our pal Vince over on SlashGear did a major review of the device as it was back then compared directly to the BlackBerry Torch. Such distinct insides with such similar chassis. Now there's a new telephone on the way by the name of Motorola XPRT. You'll notice that it looks QUITE similar to the DROID Pro, which was also a Motorola device, but eyes will deceive: this is indeed a new device.

Motorola XPRT Brings Droid Pro Hardware to the World for Non-Verizon Lovers

Starting today Motorola's XPRT (better known as the Droid Pro on Verizon) is available for those not wanting to head out with big red. The XPRT is aimed at professional users, with it's portrait qwerty keyboard, reminiscent of another popular smartphone. The XPRT is only the second Motorola Android phone to make it to the carriers in yellow, after the Motorola i1, which featured push-to-talk. If you are looking for a business-centric Android phone and you've got a taste for BlackBerry-looking hardware, you can pick up the XPRT for $399.99 or $129.99 with a new 2-year contract.
