Verizon Wireless and Motorola today announced the availability of Motorola Devour which will be the first Verizon Wireless phone to feature MotoBlur, Motorola's unique Android-powered content delivery service created to make wireless phones more personal and customizable. Unlike Motorola's first Android smartphone for Verizon Wireless, the Motorola Droid, the Motorola Devour only comes with Android 1.6/Donut. However, like the Droid or T-Mobile's Cliq (which is also running Android 1.6 only as well as MotoBlur), the Devour also features a slide-out keyboard and and a 3.1" touchscreen. It also comes with a 3 megapixel camera, WiFi b/g WiFi, a 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack and GPS.
The Motorola Devour comes pre-loaded with Google Mobile applications such as Gmail, Google Talk, YouTube, Google Search and Google Maps with Google Maps Navigation while Motorola's MotoBlur is the first solution to sync contacts from work and personal E-Mail services, including Gmail, with posts, messages, photos and more from popular sites such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. With MotoBlur, content is automatically delivered to the home screen and fed into easy-to-manage streams.
The Motorola Devour is expected to become available from Verizon Wireless in March 2010. A price wasn't announced today.
