Both the Motorola Droid 2 world edition and the Motorola Droid Pro have appeared in Verizon’s internal systems not long ago, the first with the model number A956 and the second with the model number A957.
Even so, it looks like these aren’t two distinct devices, because the Droid Pro may actually be the Droid 2 world edition – Engadget says so, claiming to have received this piece of info from someone “close to the situation.”
Apparently, the Droid Pro is just like the already available Droid 2, with the sole difference that it’s got GSM/HSPA capabilities in addition to the CDMA/EV-DO ones, thus allowing global roaming. So that rumored 1.3 GHz CPU will likely not power the new Droid.
The Droid Pro should be available “within weeks”, possibly for slightly over $200 (Droid 2’s price) on contract. Android 2.2 Froyo will definitely be on-board.
In other Verizondroid news: the LG enV Touch will reportedly get a successor before the end of the year, called LG enV Touch 2. This will run either Android 2.1 or 2.2 (the latter makes more sense), featuring external and internal touchscreen displays and a full QWERTY keyboard.
Like the Droid Pro, the LG enV Touch 2 seems to be a global smartphone. No word yet on its price.
