The Motorola Devour for Verizon Wireless makes its official retail debut today in an unusual soft launch that starts at 3rd party retailers and culminates with the full launch at Verizon Wireless on... March 15th. Best Buy currently has the Devour which can be had for a mere $99 after an instant discount and two year agreement. The offer includes free shipping and is available for both new and curre...

Yeah, yeah, I know.  A lot of videos from me lately.  The latest is a 9 minute demo of the new Connected Media Player that Motorola is putting into the new CLIQ XT (QUENCH) smartphone. It fetches... album art and lyrics from the internet, plays Shoutcast internet radio stations, and can search YouTube and other services for related content.  It event lets you post a message to Twitter or Facebo...

This video is far more interesting than my last post’s.  Here we have Todd Haselton of our sister site MobileBurn.com checking out the new Motorola DEVOUR that Verizon sent him yesterday.

The... DEVOUR is an Android 1.6 device that is very much like the Motorola CLIQ for T-Mobile in terms of basic specs and functionality.

Don’t get too excited.  For one, this video is just showing the actual firmware update processes – for those that are curious.  Secondly, the update itself is not that interesting, either.... A new app for moving contacts to or from a SIM card is available now, and imeem is gone, but otherwise there’s not much to see.  Home screen might be a bit snappier, too.

So anyway, hereR...

OTA update for the CLIQ

It appears that a new update for the Motorola CLIQ, 1.3.18, is starting the process of being distributed to T-Mobile’s Motorola CLIQ users... now.

The update promises further improvements to the phone’s battery life, better Bluetooth support, and better touchscreen accuracy – all things I’m personally in need of.  T...

DROID accessory sale

This isn’t exactly hard hitting news, but it seems that Verizon is trying to temp people into buying a Motorola DROID by offering some discounts... on its accessories.  If you buy a new DROID for the $199.99 price with contract, you can get $10 off of the desk charger ($19.99) or the car mount ($19.99), or $20 off of the price of the car charger ($9...

Google Earth for Android

Google just announced that its Google Earth application is now available for the Nexus One.  Google makes mention of the need for a fast processor... and 3D graphics, but does say that other Android 2.1 devices will be able to run it – and even specifically mentions the Motorola DROID for Verizon, which is waiting on its Android 2.1 update.  The...

Rick Osterloh, VP of Android Software & MOTOBLUR services has been caught seemingly in his own cubicle, showing off the Motorola Devour in a nice 7 minute long video.  The video shows the attractive... form factor and well spaced keyboard along with features of MOTOBLUR and Motorola’s new Moto Phone Portal.  The portal allows you to view media files from your phone directly on your computer all ov...

Despite literally being pulled from the fires of failure by Android, Motorola have opted to speak out about their desires to push their own new OS as CEO Sanjay Jha clearly puts it; “If I had more... money for R&D, I’d be developing an operating platform.” Indeed, Jha states that Motorola require diversity in their portfolio, something I think anyone could agree with. When discussing the p...

AT&T are looking to release five Android based handsets in the first couple of quarters this year. However, things are starting to hot up right now as we’re expecting to see the Motorola Backflip... land on Sunday 7th March and will cost $100 along with a contract.

For your money you get Motorola’s social UI called Motoblur along with a 3.1-inch touch screen and 5MP camera. The Backflip aqu...
