Well will you look at that. We unveil the specs on the Verizon's Motorola Devour, and then Verizon decides to go ahead and announce the thing. And things are pretty much as we've already told you. 3.1-inch capacitive touchscreen at 320x480, optical trackpad, Android 1.6 with MotoBLUR, 1400 mAh battery, an 8GB microSD card already installed.
Weight is now listed at 5.89 ounces, so that brings it in under the Droid's 6 ounces, for those of you who were worried about that.
The Devour will be available in March for an as-yet undisclosed price. Full presser and one more pic after the break.
