Motorola ‘Droid Pro’ and ‘Citrus’
The Motorola Droid Pro and the Motorola Citrus have shown up at CTIA courtesy of Engadget. Both devices run Android and are a little different.
Focusing on the Droid Pro first, it runs a 1GHz OMAP 3620 (MDM6600 chipset) processor and offers 512MB of memory. It packs Wi-Fi 802.11n 2.4GHz along with Bluetooth 2.1 and tri-band UMTS. There is a useful programmable key on the side of the device that will prompt you for how you would like to use it when you do so for the first time. There is also support for an optional 1860mAh extended battery and case and the phone can act as a mobile hot-spot too for up to five devices. As you’re probably guessing, this device is really aimed at the Blackberry market as a business phone, and the “multi-headed” VPN client serves to emphasise that point further.
In the other hand we have the Motorola Citrus; an entry level device from Motorola tacking advantage of the Android OS to provide some extra functionality. The device is powered by a 524MHz MSM7525 processor and serves-up a 3-inch touchscreen. According to Engadget the device is cheap, slow and they even question whether it should be dubbed a “smartphone”. However, providing the price point is correct, this device could be superb.
