DEVOUR shown off on video by MOTOBLUR VP
If you are a Verizon user and have longed for a Motorola device with the social networking-centric MOTOBLUR UI, then the DEVOUR is for you. The Android flavored device is the first Big Red phone to offer the push capabilities of MOTORBLUR to keep you updated on your social networking sites. Just as BlackBerry phones are known for pushing email to the handset, the Motorola UI does the same with your pals on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc. But the DEVOUR is more than just a phone for the Facebook crowd. Running on Android 1.6, it will be the first to have the 600MHz Qualcomm MSM 7627 processor under the hood. Also, the phone can be connected to your PC using WiFi which allows you to check out the content of your phone from your desktop browser. It is called Moto Phone Portal and you'll see it on the video below. The Motorola DEVOUR will launch next week for $149.99 after a 2 year contract from Verizon. As we reported earlier Friday, it looks like Best Buy will be offering the phone for $50 less than Verizon!

This phone looks cool. I might of bought it if the res and the screen size was better/bigger. The "Phone Portal" is a neat idea. This will be a great new phone for those who really like the social networking stuff. Blur does not look as bad and one advertised.

agree. the QWERTY is very nice.... screen could have been bigger. I looks like a SonyEric phone style.

motoblur doesnt impress me much. I use social networking a lot and i've personally seen motoblur on the cliq and i dont miss out on anything using basic social networking clients/apps and mobile web. The mobile facebook experience is actually quite nice to me and i'd prefer it over homescreen notifications. Personally, I see no reason to choose this over the droid seeing that you'll be missing features and paying the same rates and charges each month.

Wirelessly connecting to the computer is sweet. Other than that I am not very impressed. I am sure it will be a good phone though. It seems the phone appeals to the younger crowd. However, I'm 23 (I think thats still considered young lol) and I'm definitely waiting for something better, like the incredible.

If it has Google Navigation doesn't that mean that it's running 2.1 android?
