Verizon Wireless and Motorola have recently announced that the Motorola DEVOUR is currently available for purchase both online and in Verizon Wireless stores for $149.99 after a $100 mail in rebate and a new two year contract. The DEVOUR is the second Android powered smartphone from Motorola to run on Verizon’s 3G network.
The DEVOUR comes equipped with MOTOBLUR, which is Motorola’s unique content delivery service created to make wireless phones more personal and customizable. While DEVOUR customers will need to subscribe to a Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk or Nationwide Talk & Text plan as well as an Email and Web for Smartphone plan there are several different plans from which to choose. Also, the rebate will come in the form of a debit card and can be used anywhere debit cards are accepted and can be treated as cash.
Here are some of the key features that will almost certainly make the Motorola DEVOUR one of the hottest smartphones on the market.
