Motorola Devour to be Droid’s Little Brother

motorola_devourPhoneArena is reporting today that the Motorola A555 Calgary will now be named the Devour.  We did a quick check in the US Trademark Database and found that Motorola filed for a trademark on ‘Devour’ back in May.

We’d previously reported that this would be the little brother to Verizon’s Droid handset. It appears that this will still be the case. Expect Android 2.1-based MotoBlur on the Devour when it arrives. As of now, the launch has yet to be announced or even rumored.

    Unlike HTC Sense, MotoBlur is actually a pretty good motivator AGAINST getting a phone for me.

    I don't understand I thought Motorola was on the brink of death… so their new game plan was to not flood the market with phones (similar to what nokia does). Why are there so many new motos coming out? the droid it pretty fantastic…

    I say flood the market with Android. The more phone styles there are the more niche markets Android will saturate, the wider the user base = the better the apps! I’m very happy with the Droid hardware wise. There’s always room for improvement with any piece of technology, but overall very pleased. Now I’m just getting excited watching the Market grow, the apps getting more solid, and the app options becoming more high calibur.

    Seeing Moto Devour landing on sub-100 will be sweet. Details: http://bit.ly/motorola-devour-detailed-preview
