    According to Engadget...

    We've learned from a source close to the situation that the rumored global version of the Droid 2 with GSM and CDMA radios is actually the same phone as the also-rumored Droid Pro -- although Verizon apparently has a tendency to fiddle with branding right up until the last minute, so the retail name could still change. It's identical to the current Droid 2 in every way except for the fact that it houses a GSM / HSPA radio for global roaming, though we're not able to confirm previous rumors that it'll be available in a white version; presumably, you'll pay a bit more than the Droid 2's $200 on contract for the privilege of being able to take your buddy overseas. Barring any last-minute delays, we should see it launch within weeks.

    Exclusive: Droid Pro is the global version of the Droid 2, LG enV Touch 2 will be Android-powered -- Engadget


    Interesting... I think I might have to pass now :cool:

    Please...say it ain't so Joe..or Andy.

    That would really suck. I thought the Pro was going to be some 2ghz monster. Oh well, pick up the X i guess. Can't stand this s1 any longer.

    I don't really care as long as Moto releases a phone this year with a 4" screen and superfast processor.

    well if it is i will just wait for the fascinate because to me world capabilities arent that important and the galaxy s phones have already been easily rooted so i would be able to get updates as soon as they are out rather then wait for big red

    I'm gonna be very disappointed if this is true. If so, I really hope that either HTC or Motorola steps up and has a global android without a keyboard coming by November.

    Well HTC is supposed to be releasing the merge in november but that has a keyboard. Also if you look at one of the threads where it has screen shots of verizons inventory it has a droid 2 world edition and also a droid pro so we can only hope that this isnt the same phone as the droid 2.

    I remember when the first DROID Pro rumors leaked a long time ago and it was with a keyboard. If Moto releases anything else it will probably be a 4" so it doesn't compete with the DroidX or DROID 2.

    That was close! Just got the Droid X a few weeks ago and already had buyers remorse after hearing all the leaks. Just give me a dual core Droid X2 with higher screen resolution, optical camera zoom with backlit sensor and slide out psp go controls for next year. On second thought I don't think I could wait that long.

    Is this the Droid 2 World Edition / Droid Pro? -- Engadget

    [​IMG]


    "If you look quickly, you might not be able to tell that there's any difference between this thing and the Droid 2 that you can go out and buy today, but this thing is all about subtlety -- after all, the only obvious internal change is that it can be used globally. Droid Life claims that we're looking at the Droid 2 World Edition (or Droid Pro, or whatever the heck it's called), featuring a pearly white back and a lighter chrome bezel up front; current rumors suggest that this might replace the original Droid 2 altogether, but it's anybody's guess until we see some official information. The site is also reporting that the OMAP3630 core seems to be clocked up to 1.2GHz -- the plain ol' Droid 2 settles for a measly 1GHz. All told, this is shaping up to be one of the quickest product revisions in smartphone history, so let's hope Verizon has the decency to put some sort of upgrade program in place for early adopters."

    The Droid 2 WE is not the Droid Pro. There's no such beast as a Droid Pro... yet.
