features the latest 'lower end' Qualcomm MSM7627 (same as in the Palm Pixi Plus) - snappy performance compared to older Android phones (600MHz app core + 400MHz modem core + 200MHz h/w accelerated OpenGL 3D core)

quality aluminum enclosure with amazing sliding mechanism

microSD card slot for flash memory expansion

Cons

like with the Pixi / Pre, etc. the Droid is only $50 more for a much better phone - improved processor, display, newer version of Android

3 agree

comes with the older Android 1.6 when 2.1 is out and loaded onto many new phones (will probably be updated sometime in the future)

2 agree

locked into the same data plan there is very little reason to go for a gimped phone such as this over a true 'higher end' smart phone such as the full Droid

2 agree

lower resolution camera than the Droid

2 agree

actually the same size as the Droid, despite looking smaller, having a smaller display

2 agree

smaller, lower resolution display than the Droid

2 agree

recessed headphone jack blocks thicker headphone plugs

2 agree

fat and bulky

The Motorola Droid Devour (development name "Calgary") is a slider smartphone developed by Motorola and released into the Verizon Wireless network in 2010. Unlike the Motorola Droid, the Droid Devour features a lower-resolution screen, but it does maintain its peer’s QWERTY keyboard. It’s based on the Android 1.6 operating system, but it also incorporates Motorola’s MotoBLUR interface, allowing users to sync all their social-networking data without having to login or open separate applications. Unfortunately, the Devour is limited to the slower CDMA/EVDO networks for voice and data transmissions; plus, it doesn’t include a SIM card slot, making it especially unfriendly for global travelers. Additional features include built-in GPS and Wi-Fi connectivity, a 3MP camera, and microSD memory expansion.
