Review: Motorola Droid Pro
Even though Motorola is not pushing the Motoblur experience on the Droid Pro, the phone comes with all of the same social networking features as the Motorola Droid 2 and other Motoblur phones. When you set up the phone, you can also set up various accounts, for Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, as well as LinkedIn and Skype. As you add more apps to your phone, more accounts might appear in the Setup Accounts menu. This sometimes leads to confusing duplicates. If you add the official Facebook app - a good idea since it adds significant functionality for Facebook enthusiasts - you get two separate Facebook account options in the Setup menu, with no explanation.
There are no official apps preloaded for social networks. Instead, Motorola integrates these networks into the phone's widgets and address book. There is a widget to view all status updates at once, and another to post updates yourself to any or all of your social sites at once. There is also a widget to read only incoming private messages, whether they are text messages, Twitter DMs or Facebook mail messages. These widgets are a good way to keep up with your social feeds, but for more features, like Facebook Places or Twitter searches, you'll need to download the official apps, which are available free from the App Market.
