Motorola Droid Pro for Verizon Training and Promotional Documents Landing in Stores

By now, there's no shadow of doubt that the Motorola Droid Pro is coming. And, it's heading to Verizon. We know all of that, but there's no reason to stop taking in the leaked documents, information, and promotional materials about the device, now is there? Because, there's more, and we're sure there's going to be even more soon enough, before Verizon finally decides to make the device official.

Motorola Droid Pro to Cost $179.99, According to Leak

The leaks about the upcoming Motorola Droid Pro just keep on coming, and we're eager to see more. (Though, we're even more eager to see something official about the device.) What we've really wanted to see, though, was something other than a $300 price tag. And, we've finally got something that may confirm that the device won't actually cost $300, but something quite less.

Global Smartphone Lineup for Verizon’s Fourth Quarter

A leaked photo of Verizon's Current 3G Global Smartphones also includes their fourth quarter 2010 3G Global Smartphones, and it's chock full of Android. Four Android smartphones, including the HTC Merge, DROID 2 Global, Motorola DROID Pro, and LG enV Pro seem as though they will be available and working in the United States as well as networks over the ocean soon. Soon, yes, soon the droids, which I love are always very visibly trademarked by Lucasfilm, will be encircling a Verizon near you.

Android the Up-coming Enterprise

Android-based handsets and tablets are here to stay. With Verizon's large-scale launch of its data-oriented high-speed LTE 4G network, in 38 mobile markets across the U.S, it's easy to see why Android is trying to take the wireless world by storm. Android OS and the handsets it runs on make it more appealing to both consumers and to enterprise managers. On the enterprise front, Verizon's Motorola Droid Pro is among the first Android devices to offer Cisco IPsec VPN connectivity.

Motorola split seems eminent

The Android OS has been doing so well over the past six months, its CEO, Sanjay Jha is starting to speak up about the eminent split. Not surprising to us, as Motorola has been wanting to turn its handset device into an independent company for some time now-first quarter 2011 seems to be their timeframe. The split seems most likely to occur in January or early February, leaving CES and Mobile World Congress trade shows behind them.
