Sprint has just announced a new addition to its business oriented line of smartphones, the new Motorola XPRT Android smartphone. Claiming to be the first Android phone in Sprint’s line-up with enterprise class security features, the XPRT has global-roaming capabilities with a dual-mode CDMA/GSM chipset.
Similar to the DROID Pro that was released on Verizon Wireless last year, the XPRT features a 3.1-inch, HVGA touchscreen display with 480 x 320 pixels of resolution. It also has a full QWERTY keyboard and a 1GHz processor. It runs Android 2.2 Froyo and features Motorola’s custom MOTOBLUR interface. Adobe Flash 10 support is present as well.
The XPRT’s claim to fame is the 256-bit encryption and controls for data management. IT departments will have the ability to remotely handle enabling PIN or password lock, password recovery, and data wipe on both the phone and the SD card in the event the XPRT gets lost or stolen from the end-user.
The XPRT is also capable of roaming globally, and features a 5 megapixel camera with a dual-LED flash. Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n support are present as well. A large 1860mAh battery should power the XPRT through a whole day, though Sprint has not released any expected battery claims.
The Motorola XPRT is due to hit shelves on June 5, and will cost $129.99 with a new two-year agreement.
