Enough flip-flopping and web-savvy hearsay. Motorola took the international opportunity at CES to officially announce the MOTO Q PRO smartphone, a somewhat significant update to the garden variety Q we’ve been enjoying for some time now. We first caught word of the Moto Q Pro in October, only to be thrown a curveball the following month, as people started calling it the Norman with a renewed keyboard.
Well, it’s not the Norman, and they’re keeping the Treo-like round buttons for the QWERTY keyboard. Like its predecessor, the MOTO Q PRO is slim (116 x 64 x 11.5mm) and fairly lightweight (115 grams). The new smartphone will come “loaded with a host of utilities and applications, ideal for the professionals on the go.”
Highlights include enhanced security with MOTOPRO Mobility Suite MSP Professional, Documents To Go, miniSD expansion, Windows Mobile 5.0, Microsoft ActiveSync, unlimited address book, handsfree speakerphone, photo caller ID, optional integrated 1.3 megapixel camera with video, WMP10, 128MB ROM, 64MB RAM, Bluetooth, and CDMA/EV-DO.
