Making headlines again, 3G network service provider Verizon Wireless has teamed with Motorola and announced the release of the Droid Pro. This new device is one of the first Android-based professional smartphones suitable for both work and play.

The phone comes with the QWERTY keyboard, Adobe Flash Player 10, and a 1 GHz processor. With push mail features and corporate level security options, this device enables users to access their work e-mail and calendars and even their corporate directories on a secure platform. It also comes packed with the Quickoffice Mobile Suite, and 3G Mobile HotSpot capabilities.

The device provides users with wireless voice services in 220 countries, plus data coverage in over 200 countries of which around 120 receive 3G speed services. And Verizon is offering this device on pre-sale orders starting November 9 online as well as at select Verizon Wireless Communication stores.

Interested buyers can place their orders on Verizonwireless.com to get their devices even before they are available in the open market on November 18.

The Droid Pro is being offered at $179.99 after a mail-in rebate of $100 and a 2-year customer agreement. The mail-in rebate will be available to buyers in the form of a debit card, which can be used in place of cash anywhere where debit cards are accepted.

Verizon hopes to add to its customer base as it is clubbing purchase of the phone with pre-defined talk plans. The buyers of the Droid Pro will need to subscribe to a Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk plan, which comes at a monthly subscription of $39.99 along with a 3G smart phone plan.
