and Motorola have announced that they are adding a pair of new Android
smartphones to the lineup. One of the new smartphone is the Motorola
Titanium and it looks more like a Blackberry than your typical Android
smartphone. The Titanium has a QWERTY keyboard on the front and a 3.1” touchscreen.
Inexplicably, the smartphone is still running the relatively ancient Android
2.1 operating system instead of the current Android 2.3. The device is made to
be rugged and suitable for those that spend a lot of time outdoors. The
Titanium is certified to Milspec 810G for dust, shock, vibration, pressure,
temperature and more. The smartphone is also able to take advantage of the
Sprint push to talk network making the Android device a walkie-talkie.
The Titanium has access to corporate email servers, a 5-megapixel camera with
camcorder function, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a microSD card slot. The
smartphone comes with a 2GB card and supports up to 32GB. The battery of the
smartphone is an 1820 mAh unit.
The other new smartphone from Motorola and Sprint is the XPRT
that looks very similar to the Titanium. The XPRT has a 3.1” HVGA resolution
screen, 1GHz processor, full QWERTY keyboard, runs Android 2.2, and it is a
The XPRT supports all Google Services, corporate email, 3G mobile hotspot for
up to five devices, and a 5MP camera with dual LED flash. The smartphone also
has a 2GB microSD card included. Rounding out the features are Wi-Fi,
Bluetooth, and an 1860 mAh battery.
“Motorola XPRT and Motorola Titanium blend feature-packed consumer experiences
with an optimal set of productivity and security tools,” said Jeff Miller,
corporate vice president of sales, Motorola Mobility. “We are pleased to
partner with Sprint to deliver each of these unique business-ready devices to
their continuously growing enterprise customer base.”
