They look almost identical. Which one is the better buy?
You want performance Droid
You want economy (read cheap) Devour
Well, I would go with the droid. Yes, I own a droid but that's not why. The devour looks like a "sidekick" which for me is a negative but here is the big ?
The devour will come with android 1.6 not 2.0+ which makes me wonder what kind of "old school" processor they are putting in this. I think it will be a "poor man's droid" that they are dressing up with motoblur.
The droid works well, will have more support than the devour (I'm guessing), but I haven't done a lot of research on it.
anyone play with one yet? might be a good phone for the misses and i can get either a droid or the nexus one...
I already have the nexus one.. paid full price, but I am not liking tmobile.. I may go back to verizon and ebay the nexus
I'm looking on Motorola's site and I can't find any processor info...not a good sign
i heard it used the sam proc as the pixi... like 650mhz or somethign like that? Fact check?
Looks like a different processor but both running @ 600MHz. Why the 1.6 Android software??? It looks like it will be $99 w/ contract
I just found this and thought it might help. Just a little more condensed than the info on the Moto site.
The full specs, according to a document received by Android Central:
3.1-inch touchscreen at 320x480.
Dimensions: 4.55x2.4x0.61 inches
Android 1.6 with MOTOBLUR
Weight: 6.35 ounces
Talk time: Up to 340 minutes
Standby time: Up to 440 hours
Horizontal slider keyboard.
EVDO Rev. A., WiFi b/g, aGPS
Bluetooth with A2DP
8GB MicroSD card, expandable up to 16GB.
VCAST music with Rhapsody.
Devour looks cool, but its pretty limp compared to the DROID
$99 is pretty cheap.. may be a good one for the misses
Well, if the Devour comes with Megan Fox, I'm switching immediately.
But it probably does not, so I'll stick with my Droid. Plus I don't want MotoBlur.
No details on the processor probably means it's not something you'd want to publicly announce, and at that price point I'd assume it to be Eris speed or worse. Plus, from the rendering (or was it an actual picture) that I saw a little while back, the thing was sort of ugly.
Also, MotoBlur is terrible and intrusive, IMO.
The only Devour I want is the one with Megan Fox's picture in the tub from the commercial. I cant live without my droid
I think it looks kinda sharp.
Click HERE for a pic.
haha point taken
Same, but 1.6 + no megan fox is a deal breaker.... That or the fact im happy with my droid...
It should come with that pic of her on there. That would be a awesome sales tool!
Looks like a sidekick that drank stupid juice.
I never bought a sidekick but I was with T-Mobile so I read up on a thing or two. You remember how the screen always 'flipped' out on the sidekicks? Most sidekicks were made by Sharp (if memory serves).
T-Mobile released a 'slide' version that was made by Motorola...very similar looking IMO.
Yeah, that was the model I was referring too.
Judges? Looks like a 'now' and 'then' to me.
The Devour has one advantage over the Droid. That advantage is flash. I wish we had that.
