The Motorola Droid Pro is going to launch later this month, but those who are eager to get their hands on this high-end business-oriented Android OS smartphone will be able to put in a pre-order on Tuesday.
The Droid Pro is going to be Motorola’s best attempt so far to lure away current BlackBerry users, as it will have a design reminiscent of RIM’s line of business-oriented devices but with additional features.
It was announced in early October, but Verizon hasn’t reveal the price or release day… until now.
This smartphone is going to sell for $180 with a two-year wireless service contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate. This is i$20 less than high-end smartphones generally sell for.
The Droid Pro is going to hit store shelves on Thursday, November 18.
Motorola Droid Pro Overview
The Droid Pro has clearly been designed to catch the eye of those who are used to a BlackBerry, but want the greater power and flexibility of the Android OS.
It will have a tablet shape, with a small portrait-oriented keyboard fixed below its 3.1 inch, WVGA touchscreen.
The Droid Pro will work on Verizon’s network in the U.S. as well as GSM networks when roaming in other countries. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS will also be included.
