Motorola has launched Droid Pro business smartphone at Mobile World Congress 2011.
Droid Pro is among the few handsets launched at MWC 2011 that does not feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It uses Texas Instrument’s new OMAP processor running at 1 GHz, and the older version of Android, 2.2 Froyo. The purpose of using an older OS is not clear from the official announcement made by Motorola, and it is expected that the company will provide an upgrade soon.
The only thing that makes the Droid stand out is its 3.1 inch capacitive touchscreen and Qwerty keypad. Droid Pro has a 5 mega pixel camera with dual LED flash, full Flash 10 supported web browsing, 30 frames per second video playback and 480p video recording.
Battery life, according to the company, is 480 minutes or almost 8 hours of talk time. Even if the phone manages close to 5-6 hours of talk time in real world conditions, most users will be happy.
Motorola Droid Pro is available for purchase on websites such as Amazon with a price tag of $500. However, information about its launch in India and its price are yet to be disclosed by the company.
