We were pretty accurate when we said that “any day now” we’ll get something official about the Devour.Â Motorola has just announced the first Verizon handset to feature MOTOBLURÂ Based on Android 1.6, the Devour is expected in the first quarter of this year.Â
Assuming you might be new to Android or what MOTOBLUR is, we’ll recap the features and benefits.Â The custom user experience from Motorola syncs contacts from all your favorite services including Gmail,Â Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. Keep up to date with posts, status updates, and pictures all in one place!
MOTOBLUR also makes it possible to remotely wipe your Devour should it be stolen.Â This way, your information doesn’t fall into the hands ofÂ unsavory characters.Â The built-in GPS allows for users to locate their phone on a map should they simply misplace it.
Looking through the full list of specs, they do match up to what were previously leaked.Â Again, the Devour is not a powerful device worthy of Nexus One or Droid comparisons.Â However, with MOTOBLUR, the touch sensitive navigation pad, and slideout QWERTY, it offers something new to Verizon customers.
