Boy Genius Report received a tip and some revealing documents that indicate the Motorola Devour might be available some time between February 25 and March 15 (the February date is for indirect channel distribution, while the March date is the official full launch date).

The Devour, you might recall, would be Verizon's first Motorola Android phone with MotoBlur, the unique user interface that pushes out all your social network updates to you right on the home screen. It's decidedly Sidekick-like with the slide-out QWERTY keyboard, plus it has a 3.1-inch HVGA capacitive touch screen, and GPS navigation. It won't be quite as robust as the Droid, since it will ship with Android 1.6. It also has a 3-megapixel camera, an HTML browser, and a preinstalled 8GB microSD card.

Apparently Verizon is still keeping mum on the subject, but sources have pointed out to the Boy Genius Report, indicating it might be aiming for a $99 retail price, which would be a very competitive price by our standards.
