Best Buy To Stop Selling Droid Pro? What?
So I had a friend looking for an Android device last night at Best Buy, he wanted something along the same form as a Blackberry. I told him to grab the Droid Pro, but the Best Buy rep told him his boss told him to stop selling them and didn't know why. So now he's freaked out there maybe something wrong with them...which would of been said on here already...and hasn't. What up with this?

I think it's a cover for something else. Why would Verizon only shut down Best Buy sales, and not all the other dozens of places they are free or less than vzw corporate stores? It's probably Best Buy trying to renegotiate their rebates from vzw. They lowered the pricing, so vzw lowered the per unit rebate to bb. BB gets tough and pulls from the shelf.
Completely fabricated, but just as plausible as the price floor argument.

its not discontinued. as many have mentioned on here, its only BB that has pulled them, and from articles i have read so far, it was a pull that was instituted by verizon. no one will know the actual reason why unless one of the parties speaks up about it, but tell your BB friends to check out the pro with confidence

I has a blackberry user for a long time but didn't use outlook I used Gmail. Only people who use it more for business use out look. If you look on sites like crackberry who have tons of users only about 2 in 10 are business users so I feel the majority uses don't care about outlook sync. So the droid pro is going in the right direction to make a dent in that market. And I have also found that android Gmail is just as fast as my blackberry Gmail was. So I don't know what the huge issue is with push email, I don't get it any faster or slower.

My exchange sync works without a hitch. The only issue I've had so far was when I installed the 2.2.260 update. Had to delete and re-add my exchange server and reboot. Of course I'm not sure if the deleting or the rebooting did the trick, so maybe all it needed was a reboot.
