Motorola Pro cost and arrival date unveiled

On-line mobile phone retailer Clove has announced the Motorola Android touch screen with a Qwerty keyboard Pro is due to arrive mid July with them, at a cost of £420.The Moto Pro was launched at Mobile World Congress back in February, where a short time later the handset was dropped from the company's UK line up - only now to be reinstated for Blighty.

The Pro is essentially the Milestone 2, in a candy bar form factor with the same corporate feel. Motorola’s Milestone 2 has a slide-out vertical keyboard with an on-board virtual version via the screen, where the Motorola Pro just has its Qwerty keyboard built-in under the screen and in the look of a BlackBerry handset of yesteryear.

Motorola’s Pro arrives with a 3.1-inch screen, where the Milestone 2 has a 3.7-inch display where both run from Android ‘Froyo’ 2.2, with the same 1Ghz processor, 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash and expandability in the form of a 32GB microSD card.

The Moto mobile phone is once again aimed at the business world, with Exchange access, corporate-level security and preloaded apps in the form of Quickoffice.

The Motorola Pro was first unveiled in America back in November, only under the Driod Pro brand name with ‘Driod’ being the USA equivalent for the Motorola Milestone in the UK.
