    From the original source of the info:

    Exclusive: Verizon Wireless 2010/2011 roadmap! Boy Genius Report

    I, for one, want to see this DROID Pro (which may be the rumored DROID 2, but doubt it as it drops Nov not next month), but anything that Motorola includes MOTOBLUR on I am passing on. Period.

    I think that the Droid Pro is going to be the same as the Droid 2 but it will be a world phone

    From reading other reports and rumors it seems that way. Hopefully they have something even better for release next year.

    Nope, the droid 2 has a 3.7" screen, the droid pro will have a 4.0" screen.

    A 4 inch screen, probablly means it wont have a keyboard, which I pretty much have to have now.

    Not necessarily, look at sprints new phone coming out. Epic 4g, or there own version of the Galaxy S, it has a 4 inch screen and a keyboard. Not saying it will be the same, but there is a chance.

    Most Droid processors can't reach 1.3GHz. Not stably, at least. It may be a processor one model # up, for example. Or it may be the same one as the Droid X has. But I doubt it's this one at 1.3GHz!

    As for these phones, I will, as everyone else said, pass on Motoblur crap. I also don't think I can justify an upgrade to the Droid Pro if it's 1.3GHz and 4" screen. After playing with my dad's Droid X, I can say for sure that I want my next phone to be 4.3" or larger, and ideally with a keyboard.

    I don't get why every manufacturer and their grandma is releasing keyboard-less phones. The best-selling Android phone was one of the few that had a keyboard... hmm, is it a coincidence or not?

    Honestly, the Droid X would be the perfect phone if not for lack of a keyboard and the whole locked-down bootloader crap. But I am getting a little off-topic now. :eek:

    I for one dont like the Droid keyboard and almost never use it. The top row of characters are hard to hit because they are so close to the slider. I always use the virtual keyboard.

    There's not a lot of info yet, but Motorola is allegedly working on a device called the Droid Pro. It is rumored to be powered by a 1.3GHz processor, sport a 4 inch screen, and it should have global roaming capabilities. This sounds perfect for business users and is exactly what I've been waiting for!

    This sounds great! Until the week following the release when fuzzy photos start popping up showing a dual core Droid Ultimate with 3D holographic screen and James Bond laser.

    Meh, I'm still holding out for the LTE capable devices. Anything else, at this point, isn't a significant upgrade.

    This is what I'm holding out for! X-like with a keyboard and LTE...I have a few days of waiting still, but am hopeful there will be such a thing some day.

    damn, the PRO sounds sick... glad i decided to wait on the Droid X and Droid 2... i'll just stick with my original droid for now.

    anyway, the droid 2 was kinda disappointing as far as performance upgrades go... the keyboard looks alot better though.

    anyone have any idea if the droid pro will have a physical keyboard like the first 2 droids?

    not so sure about that - I think VZW's plan is to get LTE up in more than just urban areas before making the switch to it....

    I have a question, by having global roaming does that mean that I can buy it and use it in Canada with a Canadian carrier or will it be sim-locked?

    I can't wait to see this phone! A Droid with a keyboard and a screen the same size as the X with a stock processor that's faster than anything out right now! I think this may be my next phone! I can't wait.
