The Motorola Droid Pro has now been announced by Verizon, which Alan Ng discussed in a recent article. He also noted how the new smartphone looks like a BlackBerry, which is for good reason. It seems as though this is the first Android that wants in on RIM’s BlackBerry business market.
So what features does this enterprise Google Android handset come with? The first thing that is needed for any such handset is push email, which is then protected with corporate-level security. Another great and important feature is the Wi-Fi hotspot, allowing you to connect to another five devices.
Looking at some of the images over at Mobiledia, you will notice that it is not one huge touchscreen device — most BlackBerry handsets have a physical keyboard, as does the Droid Pro.
We already know that Android has started to close the gap on both RIM and Apple, but trying to compete in the corporate market is certainly a big ask. Can the Motorola Droid Pro take on RIM?
