The Motorola Devour
is one of those smartphones which have those crisp professional aesthetics with a "WOW" factor too. So on the whole, anyone with even a 1% tech-geekiness in them, will be impressed by this device. A 3.1" capacitive touchscreen is sported. A full QWERTY keyboard lies hidden under the display, which can be used on sliding the device open. There's also a touch-sensitive navigation pad.
This Motorola mobile phone is said to feature the Android v1.6 - the only thorn in the bed of roses. Hopefully, an upgrade to v2.1 will happen at the time of its release. Nonetheless, all the Google tools like Gmail, Google Search, Gtalk, Google maps, Google navigation, YouTube and the Android Market with its huge collection of apps are all available at the user's disposal.
Plus Motorola's coolest utility, the MOTOBLUR
, is available with this handheld too. This feature works with widgets like "Happenings" and "Universal Inbox" on the home screen. The Happenings widget gives the latest happenings in your social circle. All kinds of updates from social networks like photos, wall posts etc, will land into this widget. You can even shoot responses back from this widget. The Universal Inbox gives you one interface to access emails, texts and other messages, and even reply to them quickly.
The MOTOBLUR Portal automatically backs-up important data and even allows tracing and remote wipe-off of sensitive data, in case the mobile handset gets stolen.
Bluetooth is supported for wireless communication with other gadgets. There's a pre-installed 8GB microSD card as well.
The Motorola Devour mobile phone
is set for a March release on the Verizon Wireless network in the US. The name of the wireless carrier is also stamped on the front. It is supposed to be VZW's first MOTOBLUR capable mobile handset. Will this smartphone cross the north Atlantic ocean to make it to the eastern shores? No clue right now :(
