Motorola Droid Pro announced: a full QWERTY Android 2.2 candybar

Motorola Droid Pro announced

The Motorola Droid Pro was eventually going to be officially announced by Motorola and Verizon at some time. And after a period of rumors and leaks (intentional or not), the Motorola Droid Pro has been finally put on the joint Motorola and Verizon table.

Sported as a more business-oriented phone (Blackberry rival anyone?), the Motorola Droid Pro features a full QWERTY keyboard under the 3.1 touchscreen. Obviously enough, since the Droid Pro’s physical QWERTY keyboard is not a slide-out, there was no room anymore for a 3.7” touchscreen (as featured on the Motorola Droid 2).

The camera on the Motorola Droid Pro is the same 5 megapixel camera (with auto-focus and dual LED flash) that you can find on the Droid 2, as is the case with the 1GHz processor and the 512 MB of memory. Come to think of it, other than the physical appearance (candybar vs slide-out), it doesn’t seem like there are any other notable difference.
