Right on schedule, Verizon and Motorola have announced details of the Droid Pro, the first Droid device to have connectivity availability in areas outside of North America. Verizon hopes to entice business customers with the new global handset.
When a leaked photo surfaced showing an internal Verizon document announcing a November 9 release date date for an "Iconic Device," the scoop-hungry blogosphere did what any reasonable media whirlwind would do: assumed it was the iPhone. But nope. Sorry. It's not.
In what can only be seen as a very real and direct threat to dethroning Blackberry as the top dog in providing enterprise mobile services, Motorola has introduced a new phone targeted specifically at business customers.
The new version of the Droid 2, which will be able to make calls to and from places outside North America, is real, and these pictures prove it.
Just one month after the Droid 2 was released, there are reports that Verizon will axe the unit and replace it with a new model that can make calls to countries outside the US.
As the collection of phones with the "Droid" name continues to run amok, there are new details that a rumored phone called the Droid Pro may just actually be the name of the Droid 2 when it gets a GSM antenna.
