Well, it is finally official. Motorola and Verizon Wireless have announced today that the Motorola DEVOUR is available starting in March. This is the first Verizon phone to use MOTOBLUR that makes the phone much more personalized. This will allow you to be able to use addresses and contacts from work and play emails. You can use Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and Gmail to have content automatically delivered to the screen. Hopefully the unlocked cell phone version will be available soon just like the Motorola Unlocked Milestone.
Some other key features and exciting uses include:
3.1 inch Screen, 320 x 480 Resolution
Slide Out QWERTY keyboard
Security and Back Up Features
8 GB microSD card
3 megapixel camera
Talk Time, 340 minutes
What all of this means is that this newest Android based phone has access to all of the preload Google Talk, YouTube, Google Search, Google Maps and Navigation. You will be able to go to the Android Market for use of the more than 20,000 exciting applications. The MOTOBLUR will put all of your postings your wall posts, pictures and updates from your social network sites right on the home screen. You will also have the back up feature through the secure portal so you will not lose your important information, and for those of you that lose your phone, the GPS feature can help find it.
The phone weights in at 5.89 ounces which is less than the 6 ounces that the Droid weighs in at. It looks like is will be available in silver as well. It is a sleek looking phone with the great pull out keyboard. The screen size is certainly large enough to keep track of all of the postings and updates you receive each day from your friends. The phone has not been priced yet, but speculation says that it will cost around $39.99, with a contract with Verizon. It should be slightly cheaper than the Droid phones. We can wait and see come March, when the phone should be available. With all of the power and applications, it should give a boost to Verizon. Don't forget those all important Motorola accessories to go with it.
