    Verizon Announces the Motorola Droid Pro


    Verizon has officially announced the Motorola Droid Pro, the latest Droid which is aimed directly at business users. The words "Blackberry Killer" came to mind when I first laid eyes on this device. The new Droid Pro will feature push-email, corporate-level security, smaller screen, Flash support, and Android 2.2. Check out the entire press release below and for all discussions visit the Droid Pro Forum!

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA — From CTIA Enterprise & Applications™ 2010, Verizon Wireless, the company with the nation’s largest and most reliable wireless 3G network, and Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today unveiled DROID PRO, a new, powerful, stronger and faster solution designed to meet both business and personal needs. The first Android™-based smartphone optimized for business use, DROID PRO is also a global-ready Android smartphone from Verizon Wireless, allowing customers to enjoy wireless voice service in more than 220 countries and data coverage in more than 200 countries.

    DROID PRO meets employers’ and employees’ needs by addressing the productivity tools businesses require, including corporate connectivity and security; full push corporate e-mail with corporate level security; unified calendar with additional work features; pre-loaded Quickoffice Mobile Suite, a powerful 1 GHz processor; 4 GB of memory (2 GB internal; and 2 GB removable) and a QWERTY keyboard designed for speed and convenience.

    “DROID PRO combines the feature-packed, high-level user experience that customers look for in an Android smartphone plus the security that enterprises require, all with the reliability of Verizon Wireless’ 3G network,” said Mike Lanman, president – Enterprise and Government Markets for Verizon Wireless. “DROID PRO builds on our commitment to deliver the best Android experience to the marketplace as well as to our enterprise customers.”

    “The DROID PRO is an advanced business-ready solution that provides users with the full smartphone experience, redefined by delivering the power of a DROID,” said Sanjay Jha, chief executive officer of Motorola Mobility. “The DROID PRO consolidates users’ work and personal needs. This is just another reason the DROID PRO is setting a new standard for enterprise, allowing users to enjoy all the benefits of a smartphone with full push delivery of corporate e-mail and corporate level security.”

    • Built-in security features, including AuthenTec IPSec multi-headed VPN integration, remote wipe of device and SD card, and complex password support. Device and SD card encryption will be available in early 2011
    • 3G Mobile HotSpot capabilities – Allows customers to connect up to five other Wi-Fi®-enabled devices and laptops
    • Live widgets that stream e-mail messages to the home screen; customers can filter the widgets to separate work and home e-mail

    I bet no one saw this coming. I thought the Droid Pro was gonna look just like the D2 since the D2 Global had been rumored to be the Droid Pro.

    But yeah it def looks like a BB in many ways, especially that keyboard

    It's a really good business move if you think about it. The Pro actually gives Android a solid corporate phone to put another nail in RIM's coffin

    Yeah, I don't mind the monolith with a physical keyboard, makes sense. It is the tech spec sheet that is a bit of a let down...
