According to Motorola, the new device features touch-sensitive navigation pad; 3.1-inch capacitive touch screen; slide-out full QWERTY keyboard, pre-loaded applications such as Gmail, Google Talk, YouTube, Google Search and Google Maps with Google Maps navigation; access to various apps through Android Market; Happenings Widget that automatically pushes status updates, wall posts and photo updates from popular social networking sites.

In addition, contacts, log-in information, home screen customisations, e-mail and social network messages are backed up automatically on the Motoblur portal. The portal also allows customers to use the phone’s integrated aGPS to help locate the phone if misplaced.

The Motorola Devour also comes with features such as universal inbox; 8GB microSD card pre-installed; and support for bluetooth profiles A2DP, HID, HSP, HFP, AVRCP and GAP.
