Motorola Droid Pro features a QWERTY keyboard

We first brought you news about Motorola's new QWERTY keyboard-equipped Droid Pro back in early October. Today, Motorola has announced that the Droid Pro will be available for pre-order on Verizon for $179.99 (after $100 mail-in rebate) with a qualifying two-year contract starting tomorrow.

Motorola is aiming the Droid Pro at business users; most likely those that have an affinity for RIM's popular Blackberry smartphones. The Android 2.2-based smartphone supports "corporate level security" for its push email, AuthenTec IPSec multi-headed VPN integration, remote wipe, complex password support, unified calendar, and comes with Quickoffice Mobile Suite preinstalled.

“The DROID PRO is an advanced business-ready solution that provides users with the full smartphone experience, redefined by delivering the power of a DROID,” said Sanjay Jha, CEO of Motorola Mobility.

“DROID PRO combines the feature-packed, high-level user experience that customers look for in an Android smartphone plus the security that enterprises require, all with the reliability of Verizon Wireless’ 3G network,” added Mike Lanman, president of Enterprise and Government Markets for Verizon Wireless.

The Droid Pro features a 3.1" display, 5mp camera with dual LED flash, Wi-Fi/DNLA, and 3G Mobile Hotspot capabilities.

So what does this Droid "Pro" offer, that's unique, over existing Droid2?

Aside from the physical keyboard, you can then include Verizon phones like the Incredible and DroidX to the comparision.

I really don't see any SPECIAL featues that makes this any different than a 2.2 Droid with a keyboard.

I know some/many of you will critise me...fine...just be polite.

One huge feature is that it's a world traveler phone. Very handy if you make lots of trips. I could have used it five years ago but I don't do so much traveling any more.
