Verizon officially announces Motorola Devour!



Motorola Devour

Verizon Wireless has announced the Motorola Devour just today. It will be hitting the network next month, and it will be the first VZW phone to feature “Motoblur”. It has a 3.1-inch capacitive touchscreen, a trackpad, a pre-installed 8GB microSD card, and it does include Bluetooth support.

There isn’t any mention regarding multi-touch on this phone, but be aware that Google is rolling out an update for its Nexus One which will include multitouch, so there might be a chance we can see multitouch on this phone, as well as other Android multitouch capable devices.


Official Features from VZW, and Service plans cost:

Key features:

  • Touch-sensitive navigation pad
  • 3.1” capacitive touch screen
  • Pre-loaded applications such as Gmail, Google Talk™, YouTube™, Google Search™ and Google Maps™ with Google Maps Navigation.
  • Android Market™ gives users access to more than 20,000 applications.
  • Happenings Widget – MOTOBLUR automatically pushes status updates, wall posts and photo updates from popular social networking sites to the Happenings Widget on the home screen. Customers can flick through the latest updates and fire back responses using the slide-out full QWERTY keyboard.
  • Universal Inbox – MOTOBLUR gathers texts, social network messages and e-mails into one home screen widget for quick response.
  • Back-Up and Security – Contacts, log-in information, home screen customizations, e-mail and social network messages are backed up automatically on the secure MOTOBLUR portal. The portal also allows customers to use the phone’s fully integrated aGPS to help locate the phone if misplaced. Remote wipe easily clears information from a lost device.
