Enter the Droid Pro; Reminiscent of the Motorola Q it has RIM users double taking. This baby is Android 2.2 powerhouse featuring a 1GHz processor, 5MP Camera, Capacitive Touchscreen, and a super sexy full QWERTY keyboard. Unless the screen is illuminated you’d never be able to tell this wasn’t a Blackberry. The screen is a bit larger than your standard RIM device but that’s so is the Torch’s screen. Potentially this will be the standard size screen on devices of this type.

A few weeks ago when I got back from CES I went out and met up with my usual group of friends. Being the “tech guy” in the group two of my friends had to show me their new phones. Both were smartphones to my surprise, most of my friends are not tech people at all and have no need for all of the functions of a smartphone. The 2 phones were the Samsung Moment and the HTC myTouch. My two friends were really excited to show me how they customized the Android home screen and all of the applications they had. I’m an iPhone guy and I’ve had my iPhone for quite a while. It felt good having one of the only phones that could have apps on it, but now almost anyone can get an Android phone! This begs the question, is Android taking over the mobile OS market?
