Verizon Wireless is now offering the Motorola Droid Pro, a high-end business-oriented Android OS smartphone
This device is Motorola’s best attempt so far to lure away current BlackBerry users, as it has a design reminiscent of RIM’s line of business-oriented devices but offers the flexibility and third-party software selection of Google’s operating system.
It runs Google Android OS 2.2 and Motorola has added some business-friendly software, such as the Quickoffice suite of Office apps. In addition, this smartphone is going to include extra security software.
The device has a 1 GHz processor, 2 GB of internal storage, plus it will be bundled with a 2 GB microSD memory card.
The Droid Pro is a worldphone, so it works on Verizon’s network in the U.S. as well as GSM networks when roaming in other countries. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, and GPS are also included.
This smartphone has a 5 megapixel auto-focus camera.
Pricing & Availability
The Motorola Droid Pro sells for $180 with a two-year wireless service contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate. This is $20 less than high-end smartphones generally sell for.
It can be purchased now on Verizon’s website.
