    What? Already?

    You know, it annoys me that this version is so cool looking. Its sleek and streamlined, almost makes the Droid look like a brick. Good thing the Droid is far better, technologically.

    I posted about the Devour(in the Devour area) as being a good phone to replace my wifes Voyager but it has shortcomings. It does not have Android 2.0 and unless Motorola revamps blur to work with it then this phone will always be behind the times, only a 3MP camera and NO FLASH...and the biggest downfall will be the $149 price Best Buy has leaked. The Droid Eris is a better phone and sells for $99 or less so Verizon better rethink the pricing and fast.

    My Dare did pretty decent with a 3MP camera, Im beyond tired of the one on the Droid. And can the Droid use Blur, whatever that is?

    This video showing the physicality of the phone.. Honestly i like the design of my droid.. much better than this phone. Its a nice black finish, and i enjoy that.. however.. one thing i might be jealous of is the keyboard and trackpad... It look a lot easier to use than the one on the droid..

    Headphone jack looks awkward... and the alluminum i feel if you put in in a pocket with keys would get scratched up quite a bit.

    It's also got a 3.2 MP camera, as opposed to th 5 mp. It's alo running motoblur, which in my opinion is the kids meal version of 2.1.

    Another thing i'd like o through out there, i heard a phone was supposed to be getting hdmi output. For some reason i heard it was supposed to be this phone.. clearly it isn't any feedback on that?

    I like the way Blur works especially the synching with your computer, hopefully Motorola offers it for the Droid soon. If the Devour sells for $ 99 or less I'll be picking one up for my wife next month.

    Maybe the physical keyboard will be better the Droid. I like the looks of this phone quite a lot, but I just broke down and got my Droid, which is wonderful - great - aside from the keyboard I'm not that crazy about, and I use a physical keyboard.

    Still - this looks like a great device.

    Try using Swype for your Droid, I used my keyboard on my Voyager but could not get use to my Droids.

    Ill take an arguably less great physical keyboard with better hardware inside than a less powerful one with a better keyboard. Devour is aimed at a much younger age obviously.
