Design and Display
The Motorola XPRT should look very familiar to users of the Droid Pro offered on Verizon. In fact, the two phones are nearly indistinguishable when it comes to design and display. Like the Droid Pro, the XPRT, mimmicks the design aspects of a BlackBerry, featuring a 3.1 inch touch capacitive screen and a full physical, portrait oriented, QWERTY keyboard residing right underneath it. The keys on the keyboard have a small slant, that really helps with one handed typing. Between the display and keyboard is a familiar set of shortcuts used by Android powered smartphones for menu, home, back and search.
Along the left edge of the XPRT resides the volume rocker and microUSB used for charging and data transfer. Along the right edge is a programmable button for a bit of customization. Up top you'll find the power / lock button and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The bottom edge of the XPRT is blank, with just the microphone for the phone. Wrapping around the back of the phone is the 5 megapixel camera with dual LED flash.
Another small design addition the XPRT has is the inclusion of a message notification light next to the Motorola label on the top of the phone. Many BlackBerry users rely, or even live by this small notification light. There are users who are even hesitant to move away from a BlackBerry because Android powered smartphones lack this notification light. Motorola made a wise choice to include it on a smartphone targeting business users. Overall the Motorola XPRT is designed solidly, feels very stable in hand and has the small nuances required to help it stand out for the business crowd.
