Motorola XPRT and Titanium pro phones hit Sprint

Motorola pushed hard on the pro side of Android phones Thursday with two new models for Sprint. The XPRT [link up soon] is a Sprint adaptation of the Droid Pro and shares the mix of a 3.1-inch, 320x480 touchscreen with a fixed QWERTY keyboard for a BlackBerry-like design. Sprint's version shares Android 2.2, CDMA/GSM world roaming, five-megapixel camera, 1GHz processor, and 3G hotspot support with its Verizon parallel.

The Titanium [link also coming] is a direct sequel to the earlier i1. Although it's using the older Android 2.1, it's the first device on Sprint's push-to-talk iDEN network to use 2.x and gets Exchange mail support as well as newer apps. It still revolves around a 3.1-inch screen but has a subtler design that meets even tougher US military 810G specs for resistance to dust, shock, temperature, and other environmental conditions.

The XPRT is so far the only one committed to a release date and will ship June 5 for $130 when paired with a two-year contract. Titanium details were coming later.
