Website Reviews: 

"Make no bones about it, the Droid Pro doesn't have the largest touchscreen out there. Nor is it at the highest resolution available today. But at 320x480 it's the same as the Palm Pre, and the iPhone 3GS. So we're not talking bottom of the barrel here. What you do have is an Android phone with all the Google trimmings for anyone who wants a BlackBerry-style device, with all the Google services available and without the BlackBerry enterprise headaches (or cost, for that matter). And you can be sure that the Droid Pro is being targeted toward business professionals."

Android Central, November 2010

"Motorola had placed a lot of thought into the Droid Pro in creating an Android BlackBerry killer. An attractive design, usable keyboard, and the multimedia-friendliness of Android help the Droid Pro stand out in the sea of smartphones. As a challenger to RIM, the Droid Pro could improve on battery life, which is the device’s biggest drawback in a corporate environment. Those who prefer a solid one-piece candy-bar design in a smartphone will find a lot to love about the Droid Pro, especially those who favor a keyboard, and more specifically a front-facing keyboard."

GottaBeMobile, February 2011

"The enhanced security features and touch-screen-keyboard combo make the Motorola Droid Pro a nice BlackBerry alternative, but it still has some shortcomings."
