    Motorola Droid Pro will be available for preorder starting tomorrow, Verizon Wireless announced today.

    According to the carrier, customers will be able to preorder the smartphone at Verizon Wireless stores or on the company's Web site. Those who want to wait can buy the Droid Pro on November 18 when it officially goes on sale. It will retail for $179.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate with a two-year contract, Verizon said.

    The Android 2.2-based Droid Pro, which sports a 1GHz processor and 5-megapixel camera, is a world phone. Customers should be able to access voice service in over 220 countries around the globe, and data can be used in more than 200 countries. According to Verizon, 120 of those countries offers 3G connectivity.

    The device is designed with business customers in mind. It comes with Quickoffice Mobile Suite, which allows customers to create and edit Office files, among other features. It also offers 3G Mobile HotSpot functionality, allowing up to five devices to connect to the Internet through the smartphone's 3G connection.

    Verizon's announcement of the Droid Pro's launch date doesn't come as much of a surprise. Since the device was first unveiled in October, rumors have been swirling that the carrier would make preorders available on November 9 and launch the device on November 18.
