Motorola Devour and Nexus One snapped up together
After hearing about MOTOBLUR making its way eventually to the Motorola Devour, the team over at AndroidSPIN was able to get their hands on a prototype for a size comparison with the HTC Nexus One. From their perspective, it has a lot of features that are common with the Sidekick Slide in design, feels very solid, and is completely made up of all metal – sounds very familiar, doesn’t it? One of their sources point out that Motorola may have some tricks up its sleeves such as an infrared port that will allow you to control other gadgets like your TV, DVD player, and Blu-Ray player – basically a remote control in your hand. The same source goes on to say that Motorola may have a new device on the horizon that are “nothing like we’ve ever seen.” Maybe this might be the Nexus Two that we’ve been hearing about of late? If it indeed is something that hasn’t been seen before, we’d expect it to truly be revolutionary – and it seems like Motorola is at the forefront of it all.

The Droid was OK, that's all I'd give it. If you think these phones look good you must be as ugly as they are.

I really don't think Google's whole idea is to keep progressing their whole 'revolutionary' line. I think they're trying to give the consumers choice. So, the Nexus Two might be a bit more revolutionary than One, but I don't think the differences will be that drastic. Don't get me wrong, of course they'll pop moster devices out for us, but I'm not too sure that each new device they put up on their store will be a progression from the one before...if that makes sense.

I like the IrDA port idea... Real estate agents still need them for some types of key boxes on houses and so far, I've only seen old palms provide a port and a program to deal with it.

BEZEL MONSTA DEVOUR ALL SCREENS..YAWG!! I went over the the Moto site to take a better look, and I really think this device will go well w/ the teens-20something crowd. It's thinner than it looks, but of course it's still kinda thick. Overall, the design language is pretty nice, it's just that dam screen size. I think a 3.2" would have looked a wee bit better..

i agree w artz1986, its about filling in the market appeal too. not just the latest. the devour may appeal to someone who doesnt want as big a phone as the droid and wants motoblur like the tmobile droids.

phone is very nice in person, very fast, good looking screen and keyboard has great feel. good job motorola! would have been nice to have bigger screen but can't please everyone. to the better phone in 3-6 months comments....there will always be a "better" phone in 3 to 6 months from whenever you purchase a phone....

I think this phone would fit perfect in the T-mobile line-up..... Well at least as a SK replacement since the line is to be discontinued.

I hope, N2 will be "Global ready", with Wi-Fi, and with Snapdragon 1Gz or better. That's all I need.

This is a really nice, mid-level Android phone at this point. It should be coming with 1.6 but include Google Maps with voice. The OS runs very smooth and quick and has a host of social networking options that will all work together. It feels very solid and the keyboard is centered with the screen unlike the Droid. It has an optical pad on the right side which was easy to use. If I had to guess it is going to come out with a pricepoint just like the Eris since they are nearly identical in software version. It would seem to help thiose people who want to get into Android but do not want to spend $300 on the phone.
