Motorola has just made the announcement of the Droid Pro handset official. The company’s announcement was made at the CTIA in San Francisco yesterday. Aside from the Droid Pro, Motorola also announced five other handset models running on the Android platform that will soon be available via Verizon.
Motorola Droid Pro gained its popularity from being the first Android-powered phone optimized for business use. The new mobile phone, which resembles RIM’s BlackBerry Torch (without the sliding keyboard), boasts a candy-bar design with full QWERTY keyboard. Since most BlackBerry phones are aimed with the mobile professional in mind, this mobile phone is a new contender for the market that is conscious with security features and data safety.
Droid Pro will be available via Verizon on the first week of November. The unit is expected to be sold at $200 (as part of a bundled Verizon plan).
The Motorola Droid Pro will have the following specifications:
- Li-Ion battery
- Android 2.2 “Froyo” OS
- 3.1-inch capacitive touchscreen LCD.
- 1 GHz processor.
- 2 GB internal memory and 2 GB removable card.
- 5MP camera with auto focus and dual LED flash but only “DVD quality” video.
- 3G and WiFi DLNA compatibility.
- 3G Mobile HotSpot capabilities.
- Dual-mode CDMA/GSM support for worldwide roaming.
- QuickOffice pre-loaded for Office docs.
- Adobe Flash 10.1 player and Global Radios.
- Built-in security features such as Remote wipe of unit and SD card, AuthenTec IPSec multi-headed VPN integration with device and by early 2011, SD card encryption.
