The Keyboard Droid Pro
Looking at the pictures and reading the text the keyboard is not a slide but stationary. Yesterday I was in at a VZW store and the rep said that it was a slide. This can make a difference to me, since I prefer the virtual keyboard. Anyone have some info on this?

The rep may be going off the rumors it was a white Droid 2. Remember, the reps only know what they're trained on and they're only trained just before launch. They frequently don't know as much about the rumors as we do.
Thats what I figured. Now we get a phone that is World and a stationary keyboard that is cumbersome (based on the torch when it is extended) that will be 4G. Something wrong with this picture.
I wanted to move to the Droid, now I am not so sure. Will have to wait till it appears I quess. Other wise, have to think my choices.
Thanks for the input everyone.

There's no one phone for everyone, it's too bad this is the only game in town for a World Phone which is the one feature I'm buying it for. If it was the Droid 2 form factor or a slider like the Torch I'd probably be much happier, but it's a secondary line anyway and will primarily provide tethering services to my X and laptop
As you said, I'll hold off judgement until I see it in person.

I didn't realize the Merge was global, but I don't think I want to get a Sense phone - far too invasive for my tastes. I was thinking the Droid 2 World may be dead, just false rumors about the Pro. If it's still alive I'd probably go that route. We'll just see what, if any, phone is out in the beginning of November.

"The company emphasized that Sense was no mere skin for the OS, but a complete online and off-line software stack."
There are quite a few programs out there that don't run under Sense, and I imagine there are many more that only run thanks to the diligent efforts for the coders to support the proprietary parts of the stack. I may explore an HTC phone to replace my X when the time comes, but the locked down nature of the Motorola phones lends itself well to a corporate environment which I'm seeking to replace now.

I have been thinking about switching to the Blackberry, but I don't want to deal with RIM. After being with Android, I think RIM is a major step down. Honestly, if the call quality for the Droid Pro is on par with my Droid X's, I will make the switch immediately.

This is basically the phone I have been waiting for. I went to the Verizon store for a quick second to look at the phone and the screen is really not that small. It is large that I was expecting.
