Motorola Mobility and Sprint have announced two new smartphones that target business users, particularly field service managers and technicians. And field techs will be happy to see that the phones resemble the devices they may already use outside of work, as opposed to the bulky rugged phones built specifically for use in the field.

The two new models — Motorola Xprt and Motorola Titanium — run on Sprint’s network and are built on the Android platform. Both phones feature a 3.1” touchscreen and a five-megapixel camera. According to a review by’s Eric Brown, the Xprt comes with enhanced security features, such as data encryption, remote data wipe and password recovery; the Titanium’s rugged construction, meanwhile, makes the phone well-suited for field work. Brown writes:

Like the Xprt the Titanium is pointed toward enterprise field duties, but with its push-to-talk functionality and rugged build, it’s aimed more at the worksite than the office. The Titanium … is certified to MIL-STD 810G for resisting dust, shock, vibration, low pressure, solar radiation, high temperature, and low temperature, says Sprint.

Here are some stats for both the Xprt and the Titanium:
