  • Big F%&#*@G Deal

    Verizon, we the people DO NOT care about this phone. Give the people what we want. We the people want the Desire or even the Incredible. Make it happen. NOW.

  • Akshun

    here here. Nobody cares

  • tristan

    yeah, nice try AGAIN motorola.

  • Terrell

    Hahaha that was the greatest set of comments i’ve ever seen. If I had verizon I would definitely pick the Droid over the Devour hands down

  • Victor

    I don’t see what all of the complaining is about. No one has released any of these new android 2.1 feature phones and they won’t come until Aquiles. With that said this looks to be a better phone than the Eris and it will have the same price tag to match.

  • Matt

    this looks better, sure. in reality, it’s not. It’s in essence a refresh.

    Don’t get me wrong, good android starter phone for new folks, but not for existing or android-familiar folks

  • Ross

    @Big, Who is this “we”? I care. I suspect many others will also. Unless you’re royalty, or speaking for your many personalities, perhaps you should speak to you own opinions instead of speaking for everyone, though I suspect that fewer people will care about the rantings on one crude individual than will about this device. The last time I saw someone rant like that I gave him a juice box and sent him up for a nap.

    Is this a killer “to of its class” phone? No. Not every phone will be, or should be. Will it have a market? Sure. How large a market? That remains to be seen. The best thing is that there are phones emerging for every taste and budget. This is a good thing for Android. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. The more phones there are, the larger the base, the more we all benefit (unless we’re Apple).

  • Biggles

    Phew. So glad they’re releasing this. If there’s one thing Verizon doesn’t have enough of, it’s low end smartphones or feature phones. Wait…a…minute…

  • The Omega Man

    I have to agree with Ross on this one. The more Android base phones the better, for right now.. Phones like this should help to encourage developers to build more Android based apps. And in the end, he with the most functional (and high quality) apps, wins!!

    100+ Android based devices in the wild by Q4 2010!

  • LTbaby

    Um how about a more competitive data price? That would make me excited. I love the network but my voice and data plan on Verizon is more expensive than everyone except AT&T and this is after a company discount! Sorry for the rant but am I alone?
