Motorola’s BlackBerry? The freshly-announced Moto Droid Pro’s keyboard feels like it, to be sure, and after trying it out, we believed the Motorola rep who told us they tested comparable speeds of 37WPM in several focus groups. But that’s definitely Android under the hood, paired with a nice, responsive capacitive touchscreen and a 1GHz processor that sped through the UI. Check it out in our gallery below while we go find out more!

Update: We just had a nice long chat with a Motorola representative, and found out what’s under the Droid Pro’s hood — it’s a 1GHz OMAP 3620, to be precise, with an MDM6600 chipset, 512MB of memory and 2GB of onboard storage, plus 802.11n 2.4GHz WIFI, Bluetooth 2.1 and tri-band UMTS. There’s a dual LED flash alongside that auto-focus camera, and a programmable key on the side that asks you what you want it to do the first time you press it. There’s 3G mobile hotspot support for up to five devices, and an optional 1860mAh extended battery and case, plus a desktop charger dock like those for the Droid and Droid 2. It also just so happens that the Droid Pro has the push functionality of Blur even though it isn’t weighed down by the full Blur UI, and supports SD card remote wipes, has spellcheck integrated into the OS and a “multi-headed” VPN client. Had enough yet? We’ve got a series of screenshots below pulled directly from the device.

Wow, looks like Motorola may have something REALLY cool here. It sure as hell looks more promising than the Blackberry Torch.
