Motorola DROID PRO

Last updated: Nov 16th, 2010.

The Motorola DROID PRO is one of seven Android phones announced by Motorola at CTIA 2010. It features a candybar design with a fully-exposed QWERTY keyboard, Android 2.2, and 8 GB of onboard storage. It also has a 3.1 inch HVGA display, a 1.GHz processor, and world phone capabilities.

This is Motorola first attempt at stealing the Blackberry faithful away. It's meant to be a business device and stands to pose a serious threat to RIM. We're not sure one phone can eat away at RIM's enterprise market share, but we're certainly sure Blackberry users wouldn't mind the keyboard and form factor on this thing.

It's not an ideal device for gaming, but that's why it's called the DROID "Pro". The device was released by Verizon Wireless on November 9th, 2010.
