SAN FRANCISCO -- In addition to the trio of new Android handsets for AT&T, Motorola also announced two new Android phones for Verizon Wireless. They are the Motorola Droid Pro and the Motorola Citrus.

The Droid Pro is different from both the Droid X and the Droid 2 in that it is a candy-bar-style device with a QWERTY keyboard on the front in addition to a rather large touch screen. More notably, it is also the first global Android phone from Verizon Wireless, meaning it can work with both CDMA and GSM networks.

The Motorola Citrus is the slightly lower-end model with "entry-level" features. It does ship with Android 2.1, and Verizon claims it is built with eco-friendly materials.

Pricing and availability aren't known at this time, but we'll update you as soon as we find out.

UPDATE: We've just learned a bit more information about the Droid Pro. It is billed as an enterprise-level device, and it's clearly meant as a shot against RIM. To show it's a serious business phone, it boasts Exchange security features, complex password support, and the ability to remote wipe the phone, which is a very unique feature in Android. It has a 1Ghz processor, a 5-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, a 3.1-inch touch screen, Android 2.2, and Adobe's Flash Player Mobile 10.1. It will be available the first week of November. We'll have a more in-depth look at the Droid Pro shortly.
