Motorola Droid Pro (Verizon Wireless)

The Motorola Droid Pro, first announced at CTIA Fall 2010, is available from Verizon Wireless for $179.99 with a two-year contract and after a $100 mail-in rebate.

Business friendly

The Droid Pro is an Android 2.2 device but Motorola added a number of security features, such as remote wipe and a VPN client, to attract business users. The Droid Pro is also Verizon's first Android world phone.

Design

The Droid Pro offers both a touch screen and full QWERTY keyboard in a compact candy bar design. The HVGA display is on the smaller side at 3.1 inches and might not be as sharp as some of the latest screens, but we still found it clear and easy to read.
The keyboard is very similar to those found on BlackBerrys. The rectangular buttons are a good size and have a slight ridge to them so they're easier to press.

Picture quality

Picture quality was a bit fuzzy, and colors could be a bit more vibrant, in our opinion.
