Motorola Pro coming to the UK (from MWC 2011)

Motorola Pro coming to the UK (from MWC 2011)And there we were thinking Motorola had nothing left up its sleeve for MWC 2011 after its showstopper performance at CES. It may not quite be the Atrix, but at least in the Pro we do have some Mobile World Congress goodness from Moto.

The Motorola Pro isn't entirely new, having been outed as the Droid Pro in the US mid-last year. But for us Euro types it is very much a new face, and at least a reminder that Motorola does think about other markets than North America – even if it does so incredibly slowly.

As its name suggests, the Motorola Pro is designed for professional work-types, and features a 3.1in capacitive touchscreen above a full QWERTY keyboard. That aside there's a meaty 1GHz processor, and 2GB of on-board storage, which can be upped via microSD card.

Given how long it's been around in the US, we're not too disappointed to hear that the increasingly elderly Android 2.2 Froyo is doing operating system duties.

Along with the Pro itself, Motorola has also launched a partnering desktop dock, which magically converts the Pro into a clock and digital photo frame.

Nothing yet about when the Motorola Pro will be hitting the UK, but we'll be heading down to the Motorola stand for a closer look shortly.
