    I feel like phones don't usually lose their hype as fast as this.. I was thinking this before you even posted that.

    You do know the Devour is a step down from the Droid, right?

    Devour isn't as powerful as Droid. It's more of a replacement for the Cliq. Don't feel slighted :)

    did you even bother to read the tech specs on the phone? first of all, it is running 1.6 with Blur... not 2.x... 1.6
    second off, the screen is 3.1" and the resolution is 320x480

    not sure how the processor compares to be honest (Qualcomm MSM7627 vs TI OMAP3430)

    The CPUs don't compare. The OMAP is much better.

    The Devour is a Motoblur phone running 1.6 with a different keyboard and smaller screen.

    It is lighter than the DROID, but since its running Motoblur it becomes a totally different phone. It is geared towards the "social network" oriented crowd because of the ties to Twitter, Myspace and Facebook.

    It does look like a nice keyboard though.

    Definitely not making the Droid "outdated" or "old" though. Just another alternative.

    I look at that keyboard and wonder if we would have liked our Droid better if it had that type of keyboard. I've actually gotten pretty good with the current kb. I guess Motorola knew we would acclimate to it .

    Would not trade this phone for any other current phone at this time. Whenever someone says they are going back to their old phone I just think they don't understand how to operate the Droid. It's simply the BEST!

    It's a shame you look at things this way, no offense...

    Talk about not getting maximum utility out of what you spend money on? This is definitely a step down, and the Droid is a GREAT phone that has the potential to grow with you. I payed a good bit of money to get this phone, and I will be enjoying it for at least another year.

    Enjoy what you have, the Droid is the same great phone it was last November and will get better over time with updates. We fall into a marketing trap when we feel like we always have to have the latest gadget. Instead I look forward to enhancements/updates to the Droid that will make it even better: night mode on navigation, perhaps multi-touch, more and more cool apps. It still has a killer screen and a great processor and should hold it's own til the next upgrade time comes.

    Droid is for big girls and boys, devour is for kiddies.

    With it's shortcomings, I still wouldnt trade the Droid for any phone out right now, not even the nexus one.

    ETA: plus, motoblur will just mean updates take even longer to get pushed to the phone.

    Everyone has an opinion - yours just happens to be wrong!! Just kidding, get whatever makes you happy. As you are not asking any of us to pay for your new Devour, feel free to get the one you like!! IT IS JUST A PHONE AFTER ALL!! :icon_ banana: Well, since I don't have a life, my Droid is actually a way of life.

    Sorry, multiple personalities - must take meds.
