Motorola’s Droid Pro will launch come this November 18th but will be available for pre-sale starting November 9th for $180 on a two-year agreement after a $100 mail-in rebate will be targeted directly at Research in Motion and its enterprise grasp with its BlackBerry smartphones. The Android-powered Droid Pro will come with profiles, a pretty unique addition to an Android device, that will manage your work, play, and weekend life. Under each profile, users can set their own homescreens, apps, and widgets so that each profile can be uniquely created to meet their lifestyle–play can have a fun homescreen with adorable ringtones while users can play up their corporate-centric facade with a professional theme and classic ringer for the work profile.
Fast profile switching has been a popular feature on Nokia’s E-Series smartphone running the Symbian operating system and has shown up on the E71 and E72 devices, both of which offer a front-facing QWERTY keyboard, like the Droid Pro and the BlackBerry devices. Easy profile switching and management not only offers a way to customize a phone from the user’s perspective, but also offers added value.
