On Wednesday, Verizon Wireless introduced the newest addition to its Android family, the Motorola Devour. Previously known as the Motorola Calgary , the Devour is a bit like the Motorola Droid's little brother and features a sideways slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 3.1-inch HVGA capacitive touch screen, and touch-sensitive navigation pad. Similar to the Motorola Cliq, the smartphone also uses Motoblur software, which lets you merge contact information from various accounts and social networking sites and stream content from sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace, through a Happenings widget on your home screen.

The Devour will ship with Android 1.6 and offers a universal in-box for all your messages. Other features include a 3-megapixel camera, full wireless options, HTML Web browser with Flash Lite support, and a preinstalled 8GB microSD card. The Motorola Devour will be available sometime in March, but a specific date and pricing were not revealed at this time.
