Motorola DROID Pro Gingerbread “Soak Test” under way

Vince Reviews Droid Pro on SlashGear

Behold! The ... business side of fun? As Vince says, there are few exceptions to the idea that an Android phone has to be a candybar with a big touchscreen and either a flip-out keyboard or none at all - Droid Pro is a misfit! Droid Pro appears to take more of a BlackBerry approach with a keyboard set below the screen portrait style, how close can Android get without directly competing? Or is this direct competition? This is a Droid phone with a small 3.1-inches of screen, another 1/3rds worth of the phone taken up by keyboard, and keys that look like they and the BlackBerry Torch had the same baby mamma.

DROID Pro Commercial from 2004?

They say it features Corporate Email, it's Built for Google Apps, and has a 1GHz processor, Global Connectivity (In Over 200 Countries), Personal Hotspot, Adobe Flash Player, and access to Android Market.
