Motorola seeks Motorola DROID Pro owners for soak test

Motorola seeks Motorola DROID Pro owners for soak test
Once again Motorola is seeking owners of one of its Android powered models to test out an update for the phone before the manufacturer unleashes it on the world. This so-called "soak test" has become a staple of Motorola's update process and actually allows the company to see if there are any "side effects" to the update. By keeping the sample size small, if there is a problem, Motorola will be able to keep it under control without ticking off all of the owners of a certain device.

As with all of the soak tests, you must be a member in good standing of the Motorola Owners Forum and you must keep your mouth shut about the test. You don't get paid, but hey, you get to have a handset with the update installed before most of the public. And we would be amiss if we didn't reveal that the device getting tested this time is the BlackBerry-esque Motorola DROID Pro.

We are pretty sure that the Motorola DROID Pro isn't on anyone's list to receive Android 4.0, so we would assume that this update will take care of some minor issues and kill some bugs here and there.

They need to test the quality, or lack of, in their phones and software first.

Are they testing to see who wants a bootloader-locked phone that they will obsolete in 3 months that has a load of motblur crapware and a poor screen?

Or are they trying to catch up to BlackBerry?
