Hands-on the Motorola Droid Pro coming soon to Verizon for $299

If you are looking to pick up the BlackBerry-inspired Droid Pro on Verizon, circle November 11th on your calendar and expect to fork over at least $300, according to a leak from our friends at Droid Life. This high-end Android phone is one of the first to be specifically targeted at the business crowd, so it makes sense that Verizon is pricing this as one of their most expensive smartphones.

Motorola Co-CEO Sanjay Jha thinks it will be a hit with the business crowd and says that 34% of BlackBerry users are ready to switch to Android. We recently go some hands-on time with the device at CTIA earlier this month and I was really impressed with the overall build quality, but the style just isn’t for me.

If you were waiting on Verizon to ship the Droid Pro, does the high price change your mind about buying it? Or are you ready to pay whatever it takes to have a BlackBerry styled Android phone for business use?
