Android 2.2 OS, a fast 1GHz processor and a large 3.1” HGVA touchscreen with a resolution of 320X480pixels. But do not go by the looks as it transforms from casual looks to a pro business tool with integrated VPN, Quickoffice and a complex password support. This is one hell of a smartphone with 8GB of internal memory expandable with micro SD card up to 32 GB. It is one phone that is all fun during playtime but is business friendly in office hours. With remote wipe and remote tracking facilities, this is surely a phone that will be liked by executives.

Though the phone is not very compact, at 4.69”x2.36”x0.46” and weighing just 4.73 ounces, it still fits into your pocket. It gives a solid feel but the back cover made of plastic does make it look a little cheap. The display on the screen does fade a bit under bright sunlight but the user can make use of pinch zoom facility to view from a closer quarter. All in all, Pro is a good smartphone and a Blackberry for those who want something more stylish that the bland looks of a Blackberry.
