Motorola Pro Plus Android Handset Down To £170

The Motorola Pro Plus is now available from Amazon for only £170; the smartphone is an attractive alternative for those looking for a handset that comes with a full QWERTY keyboard at a decent price and in a compact form factor.

The smartphone - which Motorola presents as a business phone - comes with a single core 1GHz processor, a physical QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 512MB RAM, 4GB onboard storage (with a microSD card slot), a 3.1-inch 640 by 480 pixels capacitive touchscreen display, Bluetooth, a five megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS and microUSB

Motorola claims its 1500mAh battery will last up to eight hours; other enterprise friendly features include like encryption, remote wipe, QuickOffice plus 25 Exchange ActiveSync security policies - including PIN lock, auto-discovery of Exchange Servers, Extended Device Management APIs and 3LM integration.

A recent review highlight the fact that "the small display is not the perfect option for surfing the net or watching feature-length movies, and the Gingerbread OS is starting to look a bit jaded, but nevertheless if you're looking for a viable alternative to a BlackBerry, the Motorola Pro Plus is it."
