Motorola's DROID Pro coming to Verizon; tablet & Droid 2 WE included

BGR's sources over at Verizon have stumbled upon some interesting additions to the company's mobile line up. As reported by BGR, Verizon is set to have a busy fall/early-winter Android season with a flurry of new devices to hit the shelves starting in November.

Although the Verizon insider had let slip that the company would be shipping the Droid Pro (A957) and a possible Motorola slab phone (potentially tablet), there had been no confirming details as to when, or whether or not the source had data to back up his claims.

The Motorola Droid Pro, with its blazing 1.3Ghz processor and four-inch screen is set for launch in November. The screen caps provided by BGR don't stop there, listing multiple new devices. Also spotted were not only black but white versions of Moto's Droid 2 (A956) device, and the aforementioned slab (possibly tablet according to BGR). It looks like Verizon is planning to ship the World Edition (WE) of all the aforementioned devices and if they remain unmolested, this will be a huge plus for customers. This combined with Verizon's goal of 75% LTE coverage by 2012 will make for an exciting few quarters.

why do you need different names for one phone just because it's on a different network/operator (whatever words you use )?

We Americans are on a class system. We judge you by the phone you carry. "You have a Droid, well I have a Droid Incredible". Lol

ain't that true!

The Droid Pro? Seriously? How many Droids does Motorola need to release? How about throwing your marketing and promotional energies behind one or two Droid phones and see how they sell?

If you only knew how successful these Droid products are. I see people on other networks saying they have a Droid. I tell them "No you don't. You have and Evo (or whatever they are carrying) running Android."

A rough analogy to this is how the words "Band-aid" or "Jello" are loosely used when they are indeed trademarks and not the actual product. The word "Droid" is a trademark brand used to describe a specific line of Android phones for Verizon.

On a side note, check this site (http://www.vita.mn/list_detail...=all_resps&list_id=1080) out for things we call by brands.

And that pretty much sums up why I as a European hates to read American phone articles sometimes, why do you need different names for one phone just because it's on a different network/operator (whatever words you use )?

True. It just amazes me that Motorola would dilute their Droid product line so quickly, instead of putting all of their energy behind one flagship phone - the new Droid X, for example. You have customers looking forward to a new Droid phone, they buy it, and within 3 months, you've released another one with better specs. It's got to annoy some of Verizon's customers, but hey, as long as the money's green, VZW and Motorola are happy.

Same place as the Fail Comments Edition.
