    If you want a keyboard the D4 is coming it soon.
    Business is a broad term. What specifically are you wondering?

    I don't know how many users feel about this, but I've heard many former BB owners comparing the Droid Pro to their former BBs. Heck it even looks like a BB to me with the setup and everything. That's the most "business-like" phone to me imo, how it performs I don't know.

    Just like a BB then, right?:D

    Really though BB is a great business phone. Android and iOS will soon catch up to it eventually as everyone seems to be making the switch. For now I would say the D3 would make a great business phone. Has a nice keyboard for typing those lengthy or multiple emails, nice speed thanks to the dual-core processor, and great build quality imo. If you want to wait the D4 looks to improve in all those areas and with 4g LTE, so you'll be blazing through your work e-mails in no time.

    The Pro is a good phone. Guts are pretty much like the D2 (not D2G). Only difference is the 3.1" HVGA res. screen. Which can be a PITA cause of the size.

    One plus is if the OP does have an OG DROID. The battery in both the Pro and OG are the same. So out of the box you have two batteries.

    Outside of that. I believe any business features the pro has is in all current Moto phones on verizon.

    The admiral isn't much of an upgrade. Outside of looks the only difference is they ditched the OMAP for a SnapDragon.
