This message is for Tony. Were are you guys based I hope its Dubai.
Well we have received a unit to play with and demo for customers. Early days yet.
The keyboard will take a little getting used to since we are BB users and the numbers are across the top, but actually that is closer to a real keyboard than a BB.
The performance seems fairly good having down loaded a number of Apps.
We dont have stock yet for customer sales but that should be fixed in a week.
The touch screen does seem to be responsive and fairly bright.
We will post something more in a few more days
Capable phone but lacks secondary camera battery needs improvement.Better go for htc.
Motorola keeps doing what they seem to be doing best these days and just posting coming soon for their products and when they finally release them they are limited to very few markets or are so late the handset seems a bit outdated and this is exactly what will happen. I finally came across the spice key xt317 and was dissapointmemt with the phone as it was cheaply done and not a very responsive screen just like an acer phone. Unfortunately after waiting forever for the pro plus the interest in this phone has seemed to have gone to. Motorola you remind me of the palm phones that also seemed to have been released months after everyone only to see the company collapse.
uv, 03 Nov 2011mate pro+ has a secondary VGA camera..NOoooooooooooooooooooooooooo
I don't think it has a secondary camera. That would make it sooo awesome.
heres the good news!!! its out now...
This phone will be available in China, and probably HK, within this month.
Someone in England also posted an unboxing video on Youtube already.
Can someone from gsmarena tell us this phone is expected to be released where this month
I see expected release is now November let's not hold our breathe.
What's the use of producing some great phones if you have no interest in marketing them internationally specially the qwerty based handsets. Already if you go to a phone shop and ask for motorola mobiles they will show the odd one or two motorola phones but that's it and they are not interested in motorola at all as for years it was a flop at least in the middle east. Behind every successful company is an unbelievable marketing effort specially these days with all the competition. It seems motorola has produced the phones but forgot to put a budget for advertisement and distribution.
There are 4 or 5 versions of this phone but unfortunately will anyone be able to see or get a hold of any of them outside the US. Everytime I ask a distributers they confirm they will not be getting any one of them.
