Droid Pro and Droid 2 Global expected by mid-November

Recent leaks indicate Verizon is on the eve of announcing their first two Android-based world phones.

A handful of leaked Verizon documents are providing clues as to when customers can expect to see the carrier's first two Android-based world phones.

First up, we have the Motorola Droid Pro, which looks to be carrying an attractive $179.99 (after $100 mail-in rebate) price tag. Although Verizon hasn't committed to a specific launch date, Android Central is reporting that the phone will be available for preorder starting November 9. According to their source, the handset will be widely available on November 18.

As a refresher, the Blackberry-esque Droid Pro runs Android 2.2 and features a 1GHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera, and a 3.1-inch HVGA touch screen.

The last time we checked in on the Droid 2 Global, we had everything but a release date. However, leaked documents obtained by Engadget says we should mark our calendars for November 11.

Their latest document matches up with the dates that were previously thrown around. The CDMA/GSM handset will surely sell well considering its rumored $199.99 price point and 1.2GHz processor.

Verizon isn't shy about advertising its Droid lineup, so I expect it to hit it hard this holiday buying season.
