Moto Droid Calgary/Devour seen in silver, trades D-pad for optical sensor

Well hows about that. There's the Motorola Calgary/Droid Devour, all dressed up in silver. And while the keyboard doesn't quite look as sexy (and usable) as you might find on the HTC Touch Pro 2, it's definitely bigger than that's on the current Droid. And by now you've noticed the lack of a D-pad, which looks like it's given way for an optical trackpad like the BlackBerry Bold 9700 (which we've found easy to use). That's an improvement, in our humble opinion. But after the extremely disappointing keyboard on the original Droid, we're going to want to take this one for a ride before even beginning to pass judgment.

Other new rumored specs: a 1420mAh battery, WiFi and GPS (natch), and it won't be a world phone.

Whatcha think, folks? An improvement?
