Motorola Devour to use the same processor as Palm Pixi
It appears that the upcoming Motorola Devour A555 (formally known as the Calgary) may feature the same Qualcomm MSM7627 processor that is on the Palm Pixi and BlackBerry Curve 8530, instead of using the OMAP3430 that is on the Motorola DROID. The MSM7627 has two ARM cores that are combined into a single chip: one that is dedicated as a 600MHz CPU core and one that is a 400MHz modem processor. There is also a separate 320MHz application DPS for WVGA at 30fps encoding/decoding, and a 3D hardware graphics core at 200MHz that supports OpenGL 2.0. At this point we know the Motorola Devour will be the first Verizon smartphone to feature MotoBLUR, though it is still unclear if it will be running Android 1.6 or 2.1 by the time it's released. It also comes equipped with a 3MP camera, side-sliding QWERTY keyboard, 3.1" 480x320 display, Wi-Fi, 3.5mm headset hack, and microSDHC memory card slot. The Motorola Devour is expected to be out Q1 and possibly cost less than the Motorola DROID.

People will buy this over the new myTouch Slide... This should of been the sidekick replacement and not the sliding FAIL we (t-mobile) are getting in March. I see alot of sidekick fans migrating to Verizon :(

Really! Is that even a choice, I could see you saying the Droid or the Nexus but this is not even of the same league.

To each his/her own, prettyboy. Personally I'm right there with you, prettyboy. Not even a discussion for me.

BTW, I just did an inventory check for this device and it is already showing in our system. This should be good for peeps who can't afford Droid but want something similar :-)
