The Motorola PRO+ is said to be a sleek “personal assistant that fits right in your pocket.” It is going to have a 3.1-inch, 640-by-480 touch-screen display prepared of scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla glass that set above BlackBerry-esque QWERTY keyboard. The device comes equipped with business-oriented software like Quickoffice Connect for accessing, editing and creating documents on-the-go.

As well, it comes equipped with Exchange ActiveSync security policies for professional users that comprise PIN lock, Extended Device Management APIs, auto-discovery of Exchange Servers and 3LM integration. Its calendar option allows you to edit, arrange, and respond to meeting invites.
The handset contains 5-megapixel camera with auto focus and LED flash. The phone comes loaded with connectivity features like 4G, 3G, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS. Other features of the phone include 1,600-mAh battery, 4GB microSD card for storage, as well as 512MB of RAM.
