Motorola Devour smart phone to be rolled out in a silver casing too; to sport Android 2.1 OS

January 3, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran


Motorola’s new upcoming Android based smartphone, christened Devour, has made a sneak peek into the tech crowd with some specs on detail. The latest revelation is that the Android phone will come in a silver casing too, apart from the black hued model that we got to know about a few days ago.

The Devour, which was formerly called the Calgary, is to hop on to Verizon Wireless, making it the carrier’s third phone that runs Google’s Android OS. The Devour is expected to run the Android 2.1 version, which makes it significant owing to the fact that only Google’s Nexus One is tipped now to have this version of the operating system. Motorola’s Devour will also boast of Motoblur, Motorola’s Android user interface that lets the handset connect with social networking, emails and RSS feeds.

It seems like the phone maker has made it only for Verizon, as it sports all that needs to have for a Verizon connection, including Wi-Fi, GPS et al. But then a SIM card slot has been given the miss cementing the fact that it is not a global device. The phone will work on Verizon, having support for Verizon’s own EV-DO mobile broadband network.

The power department will be managed by the 1420mAh battery, while other specs include a slider QWERTY keypad, optical trackpad, a 3.2MP camera, 3.5 mm headset jack, a GPS receiver, and a microSD memory card slot.
