Motorola's next Verizon Android phone pops up in inventory


For the average person, a bunch of seemingly meaningless text on a 2-color screen is by no means the definition of excitement. But you.. you.. you’re no average person. You’re a gadget lover – and tucked away behind the glare spot on that screen is a gem to be held close to the chest until the end of time. Or at least until next week, when we’re all distracted by something else.

The screen you’re looking at is Verizon’s Cellebrite inventory system. Lurking behind that flash is a passing mention of the Motorola Calgary (otherwise known as the DROID Devour) — an Android-powered handset which neither Motorola nor Verizon has officially confirmed yet. You can think of it as the Droid’s younger, ganglier sister; it’s a bit strange looking, a lesser camera (3 megapixels instead of 5), and Motorola’s social-network-centric BLUR user interface.

As mentioned, Verizon’s still keeping mum on this handset, so there’s no word yet on pricing or availability. With it popping up in the inventory systems, however, it’s probably a safe bet that it’s not more than a few weeks away.
