    hi everyone, the XPRT was released today, and as a general question: would anyone drop the pro and switch to xprt? pretty much the same phone.

    i just have a question. does anyone know if the xprt will be unlocked? i mean, would it work on att or tmobile? droid pro's radio was blocked so that couldn't work--is this the same case for the xprt?


    also, besides appearance, are there any other changes? will the camera button work on the side or will it be the same as the pro?

    Switch to a network that has worse coverage just to get the exact same phone? No thanks.

    Everything should be essentially the same as the Pro. You'll probably have to wait until someone actually gets the phone to see if it's unlocked and if it supports the US GSM bands.

    well i personally wouldn't ever go with sprint or verizon or att. biggest waste of money.

    i'm just saying that if the xprt supports the us gsm bands (thank you for the proper term) then i'd buy it at full retail price without any contracts.

    anyway, those improvements i mentioned are VERY important to me. i have been eyeing the droid pro since november but because of its downfalls i've waited for a better portrait qwerty or the mythical droid pro 2. in conclusion if the xprt doesn't have any of those improvements i'll just go with the cheaper droid pro.

    According to Motorola, it doesn't. It has Froyo:

    Android Smartphone - Motorola XPRT - Tech Specs - Motorola Mobility, Inc. USA

    All of the press releases and user manuals for the phone also state Froyo. I suppose things could have changed last minute, but if that was the case, I'd think they'd make changes to reflect that.

    And the Verizon Droid Pro does have the US GSM bands, but they're locked out from use. My guess would be that since the XPRT is essentially the exact same phone that it wouldn't be any different.

    I do agree Verizon has the most coverage. but it also depends on where you live, up here in the Northeast tristate area all the major carrier have great coverage. i will take Sprint over any other carrier including Verizon for coverage. And saving an average of 20-30 dollars on comparable plans a month for the same phone to me is a no brainer. But like i said it all depends on where you live.

    News has it that the droid pro will get Gingerbread, so my guess is if the pro gets it then the xprt will as well.

    I'm pretty sure GB is not rolling out to Pro. That was misreported by Engadget, all that happened is that the Pro GB final build leaked. When the official update starts rolling out, the "Benefits of Software Upgrade" PDF on this page will change:

    Software Update: Droid Pro by Motorola

    Right now the PDF talks about the last major update that rolled out several months ago. The corresponding document for other phones that have recently received GB has changed to reflect that. The Pro GB update is not yet official.
