Motorola DROID Pro Gingerbread “Soak Test” under way

Motorola and Verizon are all set to start the Android 2.3 Gingerbread software OTA soak test for the Motorola DROID Pro. Yes the Droid Pro for those that remember was the Blackberry-type Android device launched late last year over on Verizon Wireless. You can see our sister sites full review over at SlashGear. The old days of what we all sadly remember as "Moto Blur" are soon to be over and the DROID Pro will be updated to the latest version of Motorola's Gingerbread build. Better late than never right Pro owners?

Motorola XPRT Hands-On [Videos]

What you're about to look at is a hands-on look at a device that's existed in a slightly different form-factor for several months, dating all the way back to 2010, in fact, having then been released as the DROID Pro on a carrier you'll certainly be able to guess from that name. This new version has an ever-so-slightly improved user interface, an ever-so-slightly improved set of hardware, and just a LITTLE tweak to the battery. Actually quite a significant tweak to the battery. Let's have a look, shall we?

Samsung Droid Charge eyes Droid lineup

Samsung looks to add to Verizon's line of Droid handsets with the Droid Charge that sports a clever new red eye icon. As the exclusive licensee of the Droid name from Lucasfilm, Verizon has been adding to the Droid brand with phones from Motorola and HTC. The Droid Charge, originally code named the Samsung Stealth V, has identical specs to the Galaxy S but brings a larger, 4.3 inch Super AMOLED Plus screen and 4G LTE speed to the mix. The Charge has a single core 1Ghz processor and the same 8mp camera used in the Samsung Fuse 4g, and capable of shooting full 1080p HD video. The Droid Line originally launched under Verizon with the Motorola Droid. Motorola has since expanded it's robot reach with the Motorola Droid X, Motorola Droid 2, and Motorola Droid Pro. HTC wasn't about to be left out and camera along in between with the HTC Droid Eris and Droid Incredible. Now, the Droid family grows against with Samsung's Droid Charge. But what's really interesting is how Samsung is pushing their own, more ornate version of the iconic Droid Red Eye that Motorola launched. HTC wasn't privy to adding the red eye to their marketing, but Samsung has managed to use it with flair. Did Samsung just change it enough to get away with it or are they being allowed to under the terms of their deal with Verizon? Kinda much ado about nothing since it's the phone that really matters, but it's just one of those things that make you go "hmmmmmm." [via PocketNow]

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?

Wait, what? That doesn't make any sense. But why else would this commercial be using a parodied version of the song "Don't Cha" by the Pussycat Dolls? This BRAND NEW commercial posted by ShareMoto on YouTube just this past Friday (in the year 2010) touts the new DROID PRO by Motorola as a work phone you can take home, too. Sassy and sexy! 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.
