New Motorola Devour Android phone coming to Verizon

Verizon has announced it will be adding Motorola's latest Android smartphone known as the Devour to its handset line sometime this March.

Featuring a 3.1-inch, 320 x 480 capacitive touchscreen, 8GB microSD card, Bluetooth, 3-megapixel camera, and a slide out QWERTY keyboard, the phone is mainly noteworthy as being the first device on Verizon to use Motorola's custom MOTOBLUR Android-powered content delivery system.  

MOTOBLUR stands out from standard Android operating interfaces thanks, largely, to its home screen centric "stream" based content delivery widgets. Built to handle users ever fragmented communication outlets,  MOTOBLUR provides the convenience of consolidating an individuals contact information and communications from email, texts, and popular social networks, all into one so called "Universal Inbox".

Positioned as a mid range alternative to Motorola's higher end Droid Android handset, already on the Verizon network, the Devour is stated to only currently run Android 1.6.

Also, while pricing has not been released, most analysts do expect the device to sell below the Droid's $199 US Verizon subsidised price tag.
