If you Google Motorola XPRT, you'll see in the latest news that it already has a Gingerbread update either already available, or right around the corner.

Wow. The stock battery in my EVO was 1500. I'd love this phone with a 3.7" screen and FFC. That would make it perfect for me.

Being a former BB user, this is very attractive. Now, if it only had a dual core processor *DROOL* I would be all over this. Going from BB to the EVO was a difficult change as far as typing went. You just can't beat a physical keyboard (swype, swiftkey, etc) and Moto was definitely dancing on the fringes of copyright protection because that keyboard looks EXACTLY like a BB 9700 ;)

and kudos to Moto for slapping that 1860 mAh battery in that bad boy!

I have an Evo and miss the keyboard, my previous smartphones all had them.
I was disappointed when I checked the Droid Pro and saw how small the screen and keyboard were.

Shipping a new phone out the door with Froyo, just to ship it, was dumb.

Did Motorola keep their word about an unlocked bootloader?

No 4G? woo hoo!!!!! I am thinking about this, I am currently rocking the Nexus on Sprint but this looks pretty cool....espcially with that battery, now as far as 4G..dont care for it, the $10 extra and the speeds compared to LTE, not worth it. So I am happy with 3G alone...does it have a front facing camera?

"now as far as 4G..dont care for it, the $10 extra and the speeds compared to LTE, not worth it."

The $10 is not for 4G speeds (yeah right Sprint). Anyway, the $10/mo is charged to WebOS, Android, Palm and Windows phones. Pretty much every decent phone. Even this one. As Sprint says, the $10 is for the "Premium User Experience".

if you look at the picture and tell it doesnt i got the phone and ove it but id kill to have the nexus and lte doesnt compare to 4g on sprint its so buggy and laggy where i am its just crap i downgraded from my rooted epic simply because i emailed and wrote motorola forever since seeing the droid pro on verizon and almost a year later results come unannounced but all in all LOVE THE HELL OUT OF IT

the $10 was for 4G, but anyone who stil got that smart phone earlier hasnt had to pay it. ALL NEW PHONES (SMART) require it
