    Motorola's Droid Pro, which took the smartphone family in a very BlackBerry-like direction, looks like it will soon find itself on the receiving end of a new software update. As should be painfully obvious, the Droid Pro isn't getting Ice Cream Sandwich (Motorola doesn't even mention the handset, or its Sprint version, the XPRT, on its update info page), at least not through official channels. But, as you can see, that doesn't mean that support is dead for the phone, and users should expect to keep seeing a few more maintenance updates like the one teased today. Release notes for the ...

    Motorola is on a roll when it comes to Android updates this week, getting the long-overdue Gingerbread update out to the Droid Pro, and delivering a maintenance update to the Photon 4G. Now it continues that trend with an update for the XPRT on Sprint, but it may be not quite what you were hoping for. After all, the XPRT is essentially just a Droid Pro with Sprint's name on it, so you might (quite reasonably) be expecting this model to be getting the Gingerbread treatment as well. No such luck this time; the XPRT is staying on Froyo for the moment, and the update that Sprint has announced ...

    Motorola revealed back in May that it would be providing Gingerbread updates for a large portion of its Droid family of smartphones, including the Droid Pro. Just a week or so later, we heard that the Droid Pro's Gingerbread update was already heading out to users. That turned out to be a false start, and marked the beginning of a summer plagued by such troubled software releases for Motorola phones. Now that fall's upon us, Motorola and Verizon are trying their hands at this again, and it looks like Gingerbread for the Droid Pro is finally ready to arrive. Verizon has updated its support ...

    While the US has had the Motorola Droid Pro, a smartphone perhaps more at home with BlackBerrys than other Droid handsets, since last fall, the phone's global rollout is still continuing. Parts of Europe are still waiting for their chance to get their hands on the phone, but it may already be too late for the original Pro; today Motorola announced the Pro+, a slightly-tweaked version due to arrive in October. The new Pro+ maintains much of the look of the Pro, but smooths out the device's curves for a gentler, less boxy appearance. Whether or not that's an improvement is up to you, but the ...

    It's been a long time since we heard about plans to bring Motorola's Droid Pro to Europe, dropping the Droid moniker, as the Motorola Pro. The Droid Pro's been out in the US since fall of last year, and over winter we learned of plans for its global launch. Since then, though, things have been pretty quiet. We had heard of its French launch last month, but the UK has been kept waiting. Now it finally looks like the Pro is about to arrive, in about a month's time. Retailer Clove has updated its page for the Pro to reflect "mid-late September" availability. Until then, you can get in your ...

    Having the business user in mind, Motorola announced the Droid Pro for Verizon back in November last year and today the manufacturer introduces the phone as the Motorola Pro in France. Aside from the Verizon branding, or lack of it, the Motorola Pro sports an AZERTY keyboard instead of a QWERTY one. The rest of the specs seem familiar as the phone sports a 3.1-inch touch screen with HVGA resolution, 1GHz CPU, 4GB of memory, five-megapixel camera with auto focus and dual LED flash, powered unfortunately by Google's Android 2.2 Froyo mobile platform. The Motorola Droid will be available on ...

    Motorola confirmed the coming of Android 2.3 Gingerbread updates for Verizon Droid smartphones, Droid Pro, Droid 2, Droid 2 Global, and Droid X. From all of these only the Droid X saw an actual Gingerbread roll-out with a couple of other smartphone test builds being only leaked or pushed back and forth. Rumor has it that Verizon is rejecting all Motorola-made Android 2.3 Gingerbread updates for all Droid smartphones. According to Droid-life, Verizon has sent the builds back to Motorola in order to fix all the bugs which were affecting the Droid X, now running Gingerbread -- and as you ...

    Motorola recently confirmed upcoming Gingerbread updates for many of its Droid family of smartphones, noting that the Droid X's would be coming right up, and the Droid Pro, 2, and 2 Global would see theirs before the end of Q3 2011. Last week we saw the company contact some Droid X owners through its forums, and begin the process of sending them the Gingerbread update. Motorola gave itself so much time to get around doing the same for those last three Droids, that we weren't expecting to see progress for at least another month. Surprise, surprise, because some Droid Pro owners have ...

    We just saw Motorola reach out to Droid X owners in what we could only assume was part of a test-run for the smartphone's Gingerbread update. We've known that a Droid X update has been in the works for some time, along with other Androids from Motorola's Droid lineup. Today representatives from the company confirmed (and re-confirmed) some of these upcoming releases, including one we hadn't heard about before. Last fall, Motorola launched the Droid Pro and the Droid 2 Global. We've been hearing plenty about Gingerbread development for the Droid X and Droid 2, but haven't received any news ...

    All's been quiet on the Motorola Droid Pro front for the past couple months, but the QWERTY Android is back on our radar as Verizon has begun sending out a new update to the smartphone, with a whole bunch of fixes and tweaks, but without the Gingerbread its users have likely been hoping for. Droid Pro software 3.8.7.XT610 mostly focuses on email, with better Exchange ActiveSync performance. That includes fixing some delays that would crop up when transferring emails, properly handling calendar event sync, and letting you store local copies of emails in a secure, encrypted state. The litany ...

    Samsung looks to be bringing back the Blackjack form factor with an upcoming Android-powered QWERTY candybar for Sprint, if the images here are authentic (and representative of shipping hardware). Actually, the tall screen on this unnamed model makes it appear more similar to Verizon's Motorola Droid Pro, and we suspect that's exactly the handset Sammy is targeting with what has usually been considered a business-oriented body style. Even though the photos are pretty blurry, the screen closeup below looks to be in the neighborhood of HVGA resolution -- which would be the same as the Droid ...

    If you're a fan of Verizon's DROID Pro, but you're in Europe, Motorola's got some good news for you! The Android-powered "Motorola Pro" features a QWERTY keyboard beneath the 3.1-inch HGVA touchscreen display. It will only be running Android 2.2 on a 1GHz processor, but seeing an Android in the candybar formfactor is quite refreshing. If you're looking for storage, the Motorola Pro sports 2 GB internal memory and can support up to another 32 GB via it's microsdhc slot. It will feature a 3G mobile hotspot support that will allow simultaneous connections from up to five other Wi-Fi enabled ...

    Just in time for Christmas, Motorola released an update for their DROID Pro. The update is primarily just a bug-fix release, but it does some improvements, too.

    While today is the day to buy your first Samsung Nexus S Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread powered smartphone, Best Buy appears to be freezing the sales on the Verizon Droid 2 Global and Droid Pro handsets. According to a screenshot (above), Verizon is restricting activations for the Droid 2 Global and the Droid Pro -- both released on November 9 -- and directs stores to pull the mocks as well as quarantine the units existing on stock till further notice. We're not sure why Verizon is pulling this move -- maybe there's an issue with the devices that might make them explode or they might be ...
