Droid Pro: An Android Business Smartphone

Motorola has an answer for all those Blackberry enthusiasts out there. The just recently unveiled the Droid Pro, which is their answer to business smartphones (Blackberry). The Droid Pro features a touchscreen keyboard and a full vertical qwerty keyboard. Blackberry users will feel at home with this similar design scheme. Some of the other features include a 5mp camera with autofocus and led flash, a 1 GHz processor, and a micro SD slot expandable up to 34GB of memory.

The phone supports dual-mode functionality, meaning that the phone supports both CDMA and GSM technologies for world-roaming capabilities. This allows users to still be able to use foreign networks while traveling abroad. This phone also has several enhanced security features including the ability to remotely wipe all your data if the phone is lost as well as complex password support and a VPN client. One other business friendly feature is complete support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync.

The device also has the capability to become a mobile hotspot for up to 5 devices. The browser comes preinstalled with Adobe Flash Player 10, so users can get a full web browsing experience. This being an Android phone of course means that you get the Android market and a multitude of Google services including Google Maps Navigator & Google Talk. Among other included applications are Quickoffice®, Skype mobile™, YouTube, AuthenTec VPN client, Mediashare, and File Manager.

All in all, this looks like a pretty decent phone for those business users who won’t let go of their Blackberry. If they decided to add an 8MP camera instead of the 5MP, this would look like the perfect phone in my eyes. Sound off on the comments section with your opinions.
