Motorola Q Pro phone
Motorola is expected to ship a "Pro" verison of their Q phone in the first quarter of 2007, says phone retailer buywindowsmobile. The new version of the smartphone should have features aimed at a corporate demographic, such as upgraded hardware and a series of security measures. One of them is a software package called the MOTOPRO Mobility Suite, which can be used to manage applications and remote devices, or disable the camera. The phone itself should be equipped with a firewall, intrusion detection, data encryption, and VPN connectivity and authentication. The form factor will be the same as the basic Q setup. No price information is currently available.
