Motorola Announces Pro+: Specifications and Features

Yet another + from Google Motorola. Don’t you think Google is just stretching the Google+ too long. After Google bought Motorola Mobility, two phones were announced  – Motorola Defy+ and now Motorola Pro+. But that doesn’t matter really because the specifications and features of the phones are still as great as they ever were. Motorola always announces cool and nice phone and it’s no exception this time.

This is yet another Touch-and-Type phone which are now flooding the mobile phone market. Motorola also announced that Defy+ would hit the shelves of United Kingdom sometime in September. That would be good to see. For now, we would just check with the specifications of Motorola Pro+. Read on!

  • It comes with a QWERTY keypad and a TFT capacivite touchscreen(Touch and Type phone).
  • The size of the display screen is 3.1 inches with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels.
  • It weighs 113 grams.
  • It has an internal memory of 4 GB which is expandable up to 32 GB using a microSD card. 512 MB RAM is available.
  • It has a 5 megapixels rear camera with autofocus, dual-LED flash and geo-tagging. Normal video recording is available. No secondary camera is available in this phone.

Just like all the other smartphones, this phone will also be packed with 2G and 3G compatibility. These kind of phones(Touch and Type) really benefit people because the users can use their phone in any way they are comfortable with. If you want touch, you will use touch and if you want to type, you will use the buttons. And yeah, the QWERTY keypad would make all the typing much easier and hassle-free in this phone. So, I am just waiting for its launch to see what is the response of the people.

Droid 2 a.k.a Motorola Droid X : Review

The much awaited Motorola Droid X a.k.a Droid 2 is outed and ready for review and other formal announcements about pricing and availability. The android 2.1 powered Droid X will be carried by Verizon like its earlier version. Coming to the package, the Droid X is undoubtedly one of the best Android Smartphone to have in already competitive field with the advent of iPhone 4 and EVO 4G.

A lot of similarities exist between the earlier droid and this Smartphone but there are lots of good features it has packed additionally within a year that needs a mention. The Smartphone features a 4.4-inch, FWVGA 854 x 480-resolution capacitive screen which again is “OK” if you overlook the ordinary screen resolution.

The new Droid gets some serious attention on improving its multimedia features. The phone has got a new  Blockbuster application, DLNA type app, separate HDMI dock and is loaded with a new MotoBlur kind of skin which helps you shift between various multimedia channels.

The 8-megapixel camera records video at 720p which again is a disappointment to me as HD video recording would correctly befit the big android Smartphone. Finally Droid gets the much needed multi-touch virtual keyboard and it preloads Swype when the keyboard is triggered for action.

Motorola Droid X  got a competitive processor this time around. With 1GHz ARMv7 processor sitting at its heart you must expect a snappy performance. The memory option is just 8GB and that again is a kind of a less in my opinion. The Smartphone also has kind of battery management software to keep your Droid running for long hours before the need to pack juice reappears.

Droid X Review Summary

Overall the new Droid packs a punch in few areas like multimedia and performance but suffers badly when coming to screen resolution and video recording when compared to its competitors. Motorola Droid X would be great competitor to Evo 4G head on but it being the gadget of the year like the one last is a big doubt.

Official announcement of the Droid X

The Droid  will be officially announced on June 23rd and invitations have already sent out. The meeting will be addressed by Google, Adobe, Motorola and Verizon Wireless representatives.
