Motorola Devour Hands-on impressions


The boys at Pocketnow just porsted their first impressions of the newly released Motorola Devour smartphone on Verizon. Even thought I don’t like the overall design of the handset I have to admit that the unibody aluminium shell (like the HTC Legend) looks really nice. Hopefully most of the future handsets will be build this way.

And although the Devour shares a screen and hardware keyboard with the MOTO CLIQ on T-Mobile and the Backflip for AT&T, the Devour feels a lot more solid than the former and the latter hasn’t been released yet, or at least hasn’t been fondled by our editors. There’s no doubt that the Devour is a solid phone. It’s heavy, it feels beastly, and the keyboard, which has raised buttons, feels better to type than the Droid’s squished and flat keys.

Motorola Devour Hands-on video

The crew at Motorola have just uploaded a 7 minutes long video demo of the Motorola DevourAndroid handset. There’s nothing really new or exciting in there thought, but if you don’t have much to do…

I don’t really like the phones design especially compared to all the other Moto handsets coming out in Asia right now.

Motorola is doing a pretty good job marketing their new handsets lately (the Droid ads were kinda cool..)and it’s actually the first time I see the MOTOBLUR UI in one of their TV ads (correct me if I’m wrong).
