I'm very close to buying the Droid Pro but I have several concerns. I've been a blackberry user for several years and the things I like about Blackberry are 1) Push e-mail and 2)the ease of messaging. I'm tired of the lousy web browser and the poor interface. I'm also tired of waiting for a new OS. Here are my questions that I would appreciate someone answering if possible:
1) My corporation (an academic hospital) uses Outlook2003 SP2, but only supports Blackberry. There's even a vague threat at some point in the future to disallow forwarding of e-mail(I doubt it given all the Iphone users). I really like the push e-mail and I've been reading in the forums how many users are having problems with the Droid Pro. I can't go to my IP people for fear of them "shutting me out". My question: Does "corporate sync" on the Droid Pro refer to those servers that support Droids? Or even if my institution won't allow them will I be able to use it? I've read about Touchdown- will that be necessary.
2) I'm concerned about battery life never having had a Droid. If I buy the extended battery (will that be necessary), will I be able to make it through a 16-18 hour day without recharging (I don't mind doing it every night)?
3) I've read about battery management and turning off Skype, Wifi etc to conserve power. Will I need to turn these off each morning after having turned off the phone the night before for recharging?
I suppose I could buy the phone and see how it goes for the 30 day Verizon trial period, but I'm trying to do my due diligence first. Thanks.
