Verizon launches Motorola Devour officially
Today Motorola and Verizon Wireless officially announced the Motorola DEVOUR, the first MOTOBLUR device to be launched for Verizon’s CDMA based 3G network.
The DEVOUR features the same sized 3.1-inch HVGA (240 x 320 pixel) capacitive touchscreen display as Motorola’s CLIQ and BACKFLIP smartphones, and will come pre-loaded with Google software like Gmail, Google Talk, YouTube, and, most notably, Google Maps Navigation – thanks to its Android 1.6 OS.
The DEVOUR features a 3 megapixel fixed-focus (really?) camera, support for EV-DO Rev A. 3G data, 802.11b/g WiFi, and geo-tagging support. Its 1400mAh battery is rated for up to 6.5 hours of talk time or 18.5 days of standby time. Email support for corporate Exchange, POP, IMAP, and GMail are included. Both standard voice mail and visual voice mail are supported, as is AIM, Windows Live, and Yahoo! instant messaging.
Other details we have are that it will ship with an included 8GB card, it has a body made from extruded aluminum with a touch-sensitive d-pad and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, and that it supports the following Bluetooth profiles: A2DP, HID, HSP, HFP, AVRCP, and GAP. It sports a 3.5mm headphone jack and GPS, and features dual microphones for noise cancellation during calls. The DEVOUR is also compatible with V CAST Music with Rhapsody, V CAST Video, and VZ Navigator.
Oh, and Flash Lite support in the browser. Thank goodness.
A Motorola website says the DEVOUR sports a “high speed processor”, but gives no specifics. The phone weighs 5.89oz (180g) and measures 61.0 x 115.5 x 15.4mm in size.
No word on when it will be available for purchase, or for how much, but we do know that an unlimited data plan for the device will run $29.99/mo on top of the regular voice plan.
