    Hey all,
    You might have read this already, but for those who haven't, this is the latest hammer from Verizon Wireless. The Motorola Devour has been confirmed, Boxed and appears to be ready to hit store shelves. According to the support documents the device will feature WiFi and will have a car kit available upon release.

    New to the features list is the use of Qualcomm's MSM7627 processor. This chip is also found in the new Palm Pixie and will probably become very popular in lower end devices over the next year.

    Good news, aye?

    Now...would you buy one of those?

    Personally I'd pass, I don't care for the look. But it does look like a good 'sister' device for the Droid (i.e. maybe for the ladies or the other fellas that don't like the masculine look of the real Droid:motdroidvert:). But to each their own.

    I think the phone is ugly compared to the Droid, what I wish they would bring over is some of the features from MotoBlur to the Droid.

    This might be a good phone for my wife. She's coming off of contact (at&t) in two weeks and is looking for a phone with a slider keyboard. She doesn't like the droid tho... too masculine. Maybe this will work. We'll see.

    It looks like it's missing the things I am glad the droid has.

    • Not a Google Experience phone.(updates will take much longer)
    • No D-Pad.
    • Screen size is smaller.

    he means, Blur is baked into the OS, so it is very difficult for Motorola to quickly implement updates that are released by Google
