A proper (and secure) Android phone for business has left many a suit wanting. But Motorola and Sprint aim to change that with the new Motorola XPRT. Basically it's the Droid Pro we've come to know on Verizon, tweaked for Sprint and beefed up with some serious enterprise features.
The XPRT sports Android 2.2 and the same 3.1-inch touchscreen and 1GHz processor as the Droid Pro. (Read our full review.) It is a full world phone -- meaning you can take it to any GSM network (outside the United States, presumably) and have full connectivity. Want more specs? Here you go.
