    Right now, at least 31% of the smartphones, in the field are BlackBerry handsets.I've been carrying around a BlackBerry Torch 9800 for a couple of months. It's a good qwerty/touch-screen combo phone. But the new Motorola smartphone - Droid Pro which the first thing I noticed about is its BlackBerry-esque design. The first Droid to sport a vertical physical keyboard, the Pro is made for one-handed texting.

    So Motorola Droid Pro VS BlackBerry? Motorola Droid Pro, a BlackBerry Killer?

    It should be taken into consideration that the choice of brand and model of a smartphone for business users is usually made by the IT department, and RIM has a strong foothold there with more than phones - The whole comprehensive infrastructure and integration with Exchange is a large reason that why RIM still holds >10% of share despite its comparatively poor offering on the software front compared to iPhone and Android.

    Yea, it looks BlackBerry-esque but it needs to function as well as a BlackBerry with emails and the other things that makes BlackBerry a good choice for some ppl.

    When I saw the Droid Pro announcement I immediately thought of a Blackberry! I thought more specifically of the Blackberry Torch. I'm very impressed with the design of the phone. It is not as big as the Droid 2 or Droid X & I like the touch screen & keyboard combo as well as the 1 handed use on the keyboard. Plus the business features look awesome, even though I probably won't ever use the phone for business if I end up getting it lol.

    I think that Android brings a whole new experience to the table and unless everyone else steps their game up that Android will excel over the competition

    Blackberry will remain the corporate choice and Blackberrys are great phones. I have always been a Blackberry user. I left Blackberry and went to the T-mobile G1, and it sold me on Android. I went back to the Blackberry when i went to Verizon and just went to the Droid 2 to get back on the Android platform. The only edge i really think that Blackberry has is the simplicity and functionality of the phone. Almost anyone can pick up a Blackberry and know exactly how to use it. All that being said, I can't wait to get my hands on a Droid Pro and check it out. Looks like an awesome phone.

    My wife will apparently be home tonight with a new Blackberry 8330. I wanted her to hold out for a Droid Pro but she has decided to join her law partner on Alltel.

    I know from painful previous experience that all technical questions about the new phone will be referred to me. So can anyone quickly tell me what the Blackberry equivalent is to droidforums.net?

    Blackberry vs Droid

    It seems to me that the android platform has so much more going for it. Blackberry was a usually reliable email device with a lot of companies using Microsoft Exchange Server for Blackberry. Now, to reduce cost, a lot of people are just using Gmail and the android platforms. My wife is excited to be dropping her Blackberry 8830 and getting the Droid Pro.

    several annoying things in transition from blackberry to droid x:

    inability to sync calendar with i cal, can't even have a 2-way sync from ical to gmail.
    inability to have the voice mail pin automatically register through the pre-installed voicemail app/icon.
    inability to cut and paste copy from emails.
    of course, battery life.
    lack of an aircast app for my favorite radio station.

    but giving it a try.
