My thoughts on the Devour

I can see that the Motorola Devour- appearing in Best Buy tomorrow for $100 on a Verizon contract- would be an instant hit with teens and those of us who love to be connected to social networks and other services 24/7. However, as cool as the MOTOBLUR distrobution of Android seems- it does NOT have the advantages of the Droid's 2.0 or the Nexus One's 2.1 . I like being able to modify my device's software in any direction I want- and having the ABILITY to do so- however MOTOBLUR's Android 1.6 does not have as many of the apps or mods available to it as my Droid's plain install of Android 2.0...... This may very well be my opinion or any of my readers', but one thing is for sure, that new aluminum casing is just groovy. I like how it feels in the hand and how snappy- responsive- the slider works. However, as I have stated before on facebook, I will stick with my Droid as long as I can. We're eventually getting the Android 2.1 OTA update anyway :).

(Edit)- Sorry for the confusion I may have caused, the Motorola  Devour will cost $100 and will require a $30 data plan from Verizon.
