    IMO the phone has a serious design flaw.

    I think this device will help capture some Blackberry enthusiasts still on the fence.

    Why does it seem like all the phone manufacturers are putting out the ugliest, experimental looks on Android? Are they intentionally trying to kill it? Compared the hardware coming out on all these windows phone 7 devices which look fantastic the Android ones coming out all look like a heap of crap. It is really disappointing that I have been sitting on an upgrade for a month with nothing to look forward to. They know what people want so why don't they listen?

    I'm actually a fan of the big QWERTY keyboard and the fact that they are going to take a LOT of business contracts away from Blackberry with it.

    Not a fan of it BUT I will say that it is a smart move by Moto. They are saturating the market with different devices.

    More choices, broader customer base.

    Good business move.

    This is not a phone for me but yea, I am impressed. This is the first device that actually utilizes all the steps that android has been making into the business realm of smart phones. Alot of people will say that this is not what Android is about but I'd say that this was a great move that will only broaden the brand.

    Its funny...... yep.... its driven on the basis of getting the BB users out their to come to android.... My buddy was a BB user for some time now, and he refused to switch for the last year now. We went camping and he didn't have any service with sprint, so he used my droid for the weekend. When we got home he switched to the EVO and thanks me every since..... he just said if the BB lovers would just try out the phones that are already available they would never want to go back to that crap.

    IMO i think it sucks. I can't believe that Motorola are releasing these phones! Maybe its to reach more demographics but they don't seem any better than devices released over a year ago. Android 2.1, really? I hate the verical keyboard and the screen; i think the whole design is flawed.

    So far north in NY I smell maple syrup when the wi
    Ours is not to question why, ours is but to say "yay Android!"

    Everyone has different needs and wants when it comes to phones. I refused to consider the Incredible because of the lack of hardware keyboard even though I was moving from a TracFone flip phone to a Droid 1 on a contract for the first time. Price was a big selling point, too, as $20 was a lot easier to swallow than $149.

    This phone, ugly as it may seem to we "purist" Android users, makes more sense than the LG Ally or the Devour does, really. It's aimed at hardcore Blackberry users, and as such I think it'll hit the mark. Have you seen/held/played with the Torch? It's terrible. It's a hybrid Storm/Bold, oversized, and clunky. The OS is still RIM and therefore limited. This? If they slap on extra Exchange/VPN/etc. support and make it so you don't have to root the bugger to get TUN et. al. support they'll have a surefire winner among business users.

    Ugly? Yes. Impressed? Not with the phone, but yes with the thought behind it and the possibilities it entails for Android as a whole.

    Yes. This is the Droid that I believe will start getting the Blakberry crowd over to Android. The device is perfect for a business user, BB convert. It is also appropriately named knowing the target market. The Droid Pro(fessional) kind of gives it a more business sound rather than the INCREDIBLE!! EVO!!! EPIC!!!

    Being a current Blackberry user I am impressed by the Pro & am strongly considering upgrading to the Pro next month!
