    Rob over at phandroid has just reviewed the Motorola Devour.

    For those who may not been following this release it will be running Android 1.6 w/MOTOBLUR.

    Living up to Motorolas great build quality the Devour will not disappoint.

    He described the Devour as ...." heavy. It was sturdy. It screamed “tough” and wanted to be its own man phone. The aluminum body with black, ruggedized rubber contributed to the look and feel and honestly it seems like the most solid Android phone out there."

    Enjoy

    Ah... Motorola at their finest... Yet another great example of how they went from being one of the top cell phone manufacturers to being on their way out... Don't get me wrong I love my Droid but there's a reason it's my first Moto device in over 6 yrs and likely my last.:mad:

    Edit:
    Though it would be nice if the chefs and pull the Flash lite from the ROM and implement it in their ROMs.

    I actually think the device will make for a good consumer device.

    It will be a hit with the LG crowd and people looking for a good "social" device. There is a definite market for this phone. I'm going to predict that it will be a VERY good seller for VZW.

    I played with one at work when we got them for sale. I liked the feel of the phone and the keyboard very much. Still like the droid system much better as I don't do much with the social side of the phone.

    That was my thought as well, but then given the size, weight and feel of the device I doubt most women will like it... (again, hats off to Moto for their schizophrenic desgin(s)...).

    Only market I could see this being a hit with is teens/college students. The social aspect will be right for that group and the extra size/weight of the build might make it stand up to the abuse a bit better. (and yes, I consider teens and fresh/soph college students the same 'group':icon_ devil:)

    Why the emphasis of the commenters on the social aspect? This phone doesn't do social networks any better (or worse) than any smart phone.

    Moto's UI is geared towards (ease of) social networking (interface ect.)

    Motorola has seemed to stop caring about asthetics...Function is in my opinion most important but that doesnt mean you can get away with making an ugly phone.

    I actually kind of like the design of this phone. I admit that when I first saw it, I thought it looked kinda of cheap, and I still don't understand why they left so much real estate unused on the phone. With that said, the silver with black accents is once again another sharp looking phone. Similar to how the droid has its own distinct sense of style, this phone sticks out in its own way. Just my opinion.

    the MotoBlur software runs really well on the device... looks very nice.

    but that trackpad is terrible!!! unusable from watching the video...

    also the physical keyboard is way too small, and isn't full qwerty really... fail!

    weighs more than the Droid? really?

    It was funny, but her (Megan Fox) 'thumb double' is as hot (or hotter) than she is... besides, she doesn't live with a rich douche that doesn't bother to pay his mortgage:icon_ devil:

    Is it me or am i just ignorant about the fact the "new" phones are coming out with the 1.6 android os is just as backwards as the design of it?? I mean, umm does it not make more scents to up grade as you go ? for example the nexus comes out after droid and it has 2.1... (another sore spot considering i have a moto droid) and they take away the flash and the auto focus?? Umm wow. Maybe they are stuck in another dimension where time goes backwards. LOL next you know they will come out w/ a droid logo shaped can with a string attached to it and say this is the best yet, analog encrypted security with direct access to the receiver over a VoS system (voice over string) And does not even need a log in to access or an open access point. LOL :icon_eek:

    Hate the look. Hate the way the hardware is set up... the notification on the bottom instead of the normal 4 haptic keys? The battery door looks like a total design flaw to me - it will break. No flash fixed focus? The keyboard is not qwerty... the software is 1.6 and most people don't use all of the social networks anymore - just a few. It's like they went backwards a year or two and made a phone for then.

    The choice between this and the Droid isn't even a choice. In fact I'd sooner buy an HTC or the Nexus.

    ...And, the black theme of the Droid is far more manly than this aluminum beer can look. And we all know "manly" is the name of the game. Uh, sorry girls... :heart:
