Looks like the Motorola Droid Devour(Calgary, A555) that will be released on Verizon Wireless soon will be the first Android phone rocking the Qualcomm MSM7627 processor.


This is a new processor for Qualcomm and can also be found in the Palm Pixi and RIM BlackBerry Curve 8530. The processor is similar to the ARM 11 found in many current Android devices but also boasts:

  • Two ARM cores integrated into a single chip – a dedicated CPU core and a dedicated modem processor – for an unparalleled level of integration:
    • 1. 600MHz applications processor with floating point unit and L2 cache
    • 2. 400MHz modem processor
  • Supports both CDMA2000® 1xEV-DO Rev. A and UMTS HSDPA 7.2Mbps/HSUPA 5.76Mbps, and GSM
  • In addition to the two ARM cores, features 320MHz application DSP for multimedia supporting full 30 fps WVGA encode/decode, 200MHz hardware-accelerated 3D graphics core supporting OPEN GL 2.0, high-resolution camera, integrated GPS
  • 12mm x 12mm footprint
  • Optimized power consumption

The Motorola Devour is rumored to launch with Android 2.1, something that only the Nexus One officially has. Hopefully a launch of this nifty new Android powered device from Motorola will be released soon, anyone excited yet?
