It looks like Motorola (NYSE: MOT) won't be satisfied until it drives Research In Motion (Nasdaq: RIMM) out of every businessperson's pocket with an army of Androids.

If the Motorola Charm was a direct attack on RIM's BlackBerry Curve, the upcoming Droid Pro is an assassin, targeting the BlackBerry Torch. As the name implies, the Motorola-designed Droid Pro will ship to Verizon (NYSE: VZ) Wireless stores later this fall, providing an instant business-class option for Android fans. This is not a top-shelf model by any means -- that job still falls to the Droid X, Droid 2, or Samsung Fascinate in Verizon's pantheon. The screen is relatively small, the camera merely adequate for a smartphone of this day and age, and nothing about this device should scream "Buy me!" to your average consumer.

But the phone comes packed with business-grade features such as remote lock and wipe capabilities, high-grade encryption, support for global networks in case you're traveling abroad, and more. Above all, the full QWERTY keyboard below a full three-inch touchscreen provides an interface that's instantly recognizable and comfortable for BlackBerry users.

The business features don't stop there: The Droid Pro can synchronize with email accounts on both Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Exchange and Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) Gmail backends, along with calendars from both of those data providers. This is how Motorola helps Google usurp the age-old Microsoft Office hegemony: by presenting Google's alternatives in a fully supported and clearly business-oriented product.

The mobile battle for corporate accounts is surely heating up, not only because Motorola is designing devices specifically for that space, but also because many of these enterprise-ready extras are becoming commonplace in smartphones of every stripe. Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) added Exchange syncing to its iPhones two years ago, and it's a standard feature in the latest basic version of Android.

If I were Research In Motion, I'd be looking for either a miracle or an exit strategy these days. The company's core market is succumbing to commodity-itis.

Does RIM have a snowball's chance in Death Valley to turn the tide before succumbing to the Android and iPhone invasion? Discuss in the comments below.
