We brought you the promotional packaging for the Motorola Devour. But how would you like some specs? Here we go with the phone formerly known as the Calgary, which we're expecting on Verizon anytime now. (Yes, that's a Droid in the picture above. We're told that's just a placeholder.)
The biggies: Android 1.6 (Donut) with MotoBLUR. A 3.1-inch touchscreen (320x480). 3MP camera. Verizon is requiring a data plan, and the $350 early termination fee is in effect. It comes with an 8GB microSD card.
Still no word on price or when it will go on sale, but we're told it could be anytime now. There's a better breakdown and more screenies after the break.
- 3.1-inch touchscreen at 320x480.
- Dimensions: 4.55x2.4x0.61 inches.
- Weight: 6.35 ounces
- Talk time: Up to 340 minutes
- Standby time: Up to 440 hours
- Horizontal slider keyboard.
- 3-megapixel camera.
- EVDO Rev. A.
- WiFi b/g
- Audio formats: AAC, AAC+, eAAC+, WMA, MP3
- Video formats: MPEG-4, h.263,
- Bluetooth with A2DP
- HTML 5-compatible Webkit browser.
- MicroSD card up to 16GB.
- VCAST music with Rhapsody.
The lack of Android 2+ is troubling as is the addition of that abomination MotoBlur.
Not having Android 2.0 is the least of the problems if it only has "at 320x480" What the heck!?
The strange thing about this calgary model is why should the specs be fluctuated down by moto developers? This moto-devour had 3MP cam, BLUR only, and its keyboard was degraded from RAZR to 'iDontKnow'. Details: http://pinoytutorial.com/techtorial/motorola-calgary-droid-devour-specs-...
not really interested... give me the n1 with the multi touch!
It's expected an update of android 2.1. And why is everyone dissing on MotoBlur? Also, is there a way to disable the UI like on windows mobile phones?
6.35 ounces? Isn't the Droid only 6? And it's already a heavy phone. I'm sure .35 oz wont make that big of a difference, but you'd think Motorola would look into weight shaving, especially for a something that usually sits in peoples' pockets.
5.96 ounces is the weight of the Droid. So, Yeah, I am on the same page as you! A cut down version of the droid.........that weighs more!? What makes it weigh more?
Here's another one for ya, its also LARGER than the Droid. Droid: Dimensions: 4.56" (H) x 2.36" (W) x 0.54" (D) Devour: Dimensions: 4.55x (H) 2.4x (W) 0.61 inches (D)
odd not 2.+ you would think that would be standard now. Perhaps Motoblur and 2.+ not play well together...
Uh, did anyone notice the flash lite support!???
2 questions for people: 1) Is a 65k screen a lot of colors, or a little? 2) It says the color is "gray", does that mean the black devour is gone? Cause I personally thought the black looked much nicer.
All phones have Flash Lite support. Flash Player 10 is what your thinking.
On the bottom of the specs why does it say Google Chrome Web Browser????
The phone manufacturer famed for its ultra thin RAZR handsets of years ago seems to have turned a corner with Google firmly on its side, with this latest handset running the Android operating system.
Did any1else notice the 3g smartphone thing in the specs. That means the $30 data plan is required for the devour. U might as well get the droid
You're correct on the 1.6, MotoBlur is not ready for 2.xx at this time. The color is aluminium, as in extruded aluminium case. Even though it's running 1.6, it will still have Google voice prompt nav. Blur, one off the biggest reasons people will buy this phone, can be controlled and the widgets deleted from the desktop, at least on the Cliq. The customers that buy this phone probably won't though as it's an excellent way to deliver information to the desktop while saving battery life.
