Sneak Peek on the Motorola Droid Pro

The new Motorola Droids Pro will bring the functions of a “Full front facing QWERTY keyboard.” Some people might compare it with the Rim’s Blackberry, but it is all Droid.
With the new QWERTY keyboard, many might question is it a hybrid of both touch screen and keyboard or is just use the QWERTY keyboard? 

Phil Nickinson from Android Center said this after playing with the new Motorola Droid Pro 

“The Motorola Droid Pro is your standard “candybar” form factor in that it’s a big black slab. It’s comparable in size to most other smartphones -- a tad taller than the Droid 2, a bit shorter than the Droid X. Exact dimensions are 61mm wide, 119mm tall and 11.7mm thin -- not much different than the ol’ Q9h, actually, just 6mm narrower and 1mm shorter.

The phone itself feels pretty good in the hand, if just a tad tall. Hold it in your left hand and your thumb rests perfectly on the volume rocker, and your index finger hits a button that by default opens the calendar. (Here’s another good sign this phone is being marketed at business-types, eh?) That button can be changed to open any other app you want. 

The power button’s up top, along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. The standard microUSB port is on the bottom left bezel, and it lights up when plugged in.

The front of the Droid Pro is dominated by a 3.1-inch TFT LCD touchscreen. No, it’s not that newfangled AMOLED technology, nor is it at 320 pixels by 480 pixels a particularly high resolution -- most new high-end phones are 480x800. On paper, that lower resolution worried us. In actuality, the Droid Pro is very much usable. You’ll definitely notice the smaller screen and slightly lower resolution -- individual pixels are apparent but not necessarily pronounced -- but it’s not a deal-breaker. It’s just a trade-off for having a full QWERTY keyboard on the front of the device”
The new Motorola Droid Pro is powered with a 1GHz TI OMAP processor, also with a 2GB of ROM (space on the phone) and about 477MB of memory free to run apps. It comes with a 2GB microSD card, which can be swapped out for up to a 32GB card. 

The Motorola Droid Pro is ships with Android 2.2 aka Froyo. It have the same screen customization as the Droid X, you’ve got the usual three buttons at the bottom for the phone dialer, app launcher and contacts.
