Hands-on with the Samsung Continuum and Motorola DROID Pro
The Motorola DROID Pro is mainly design for the international traveler, as it can operate on CDMA (in the US) and GSM (overseas) networks with the included SIM card, but Verizon says it will not work with other SIM cards, making it locked-down. The design of the DROID Pro looks similar to a BlackBerry, with a 3.1" 480x320 resolution TFT display on the top, and a small QWERTY keyboard on the bottom. The user interface is also the same that we saw with the Motorola DROID 2, DROID 2 Global, and the DROID X, so there's nothing unexpected here. We placed a few tests calls and the voice quality on the DROID Pro was good and equivalent to the other DROID phones. The buttons on the QWERTY keyboard are a bit small, compared to the larger keyboards on the DROID 2 and DROID 2 Global, so large hands may have a problem with that. The DROID Pro runs on a 1GHz OMAP processor and is using Android 2.2 with the Motorola UI.

if you're ready to return it after that then you just must not like the phone.

You're obviously not used to android and if that's the only reason you are returning it, i laugh at your retardation...
Li-Ion batteries need conditioning, don't expect them to be 100% out of the box.... noob

Yes, at the very end of the video we accidentally grabbed the Fascinate instead of the Continuum. Sorry. But I think most people knew which one we meant.
