Nexus 5 gets Android 5.1 OTA, might devour your RAM

Google has finally let out the OTA update that will bring the Nexus 5 to Android 5.1 land. This follows the release of factory images and binaries for several of the supported Nexus devices. However, if you are quite excited to get the latest and supposedly greatest Android version, you might want to exercise caution, as some users are reporting a rather dreadful bug in this release that causes Android to eat up RAM like crazy, even if you have more than 1 GB of it.

MOTOROLA DEVOUR now free from Verizon 


The nearing “end-of-life” Motorola Devour is now free from Verizon.com with a new 2-year activation plan. The Motorola Devour runs Motoblur and it’s really the only Verizon device with the software. Some of it's key features include a 3.1" touchscreen, integrated social network features, and 3.0 megapixel camera.

Verizon DROID and DEVOUR now end-of-life?

Verizon's DROID X has only just gone on sale - and is already sold out, with new deliveries not expected until July 23rd - but the carrier is already looking to phase out its predecessor.  According to a leaked screenshot Droid Forums received from the carrier's systems, both the Motorola DROID A855 and the DEVOUR A555 are being classed end-of-life, with "limited or no remaining shipments from the vendor". It's unclear how much time that gives would-be DROID (or indeed DEVOUR) owners to pick up their handset of choice, so we'd advise ringing ahead to check your local Verizon store has them in stock.  Both are currently available for order via the carrier's website.

Motorola Devour for Verizon Unboxing and hands-on

Motorola have just delivered their eighth Android device, the Motorola DEVOUR, and the latest to hit Verizon's network in the US. As we discovered in our brief hands-on at MWC 2010 last week, the DEVOUR's high-quality extruded aluminum body goes a long way to making up for its somewhat blocky style; read on for more first-impressions.

Motorola DEVOUR hands-on; $150 at Best Buy?

We'll admit we weren't entirely convinced when we first saw shots of the Motorola DEVOUR, but having played with the Android handset this week at MWC 2010 the extruded-aluminum chassis has won us over.  What looks blocky and awkward in photos turns out to have a truly premium feel in the hand, and the DEVOUR's sliding keyboard mechanism is solid and reassuring. The unit we were looking at was functional, but hadn't been set up on Verizon's CDMA network yet; that meant we couldn't get to the Android homescreen (since there's no CDMA coverage in Barcelona).  Still, we're expecting performance to be pretty much on a par with Motorola's other recent MOTOBLUR devices.  As for the keyboard, the hard keys are slightly domed and pretty easy to hit, and concerns that the overall shape would leave it tricky to comfortably type on seem to have been unfounded. According to the latest rumors, Best Buy are planning to begin selling the DEVOUR from $149.99 with a two-year agreement, or $549.99 contract-free.  Last we heard the Android smartphone would hit shelves on February 25th.

Verizon Motorola DEVOUR on sale February 25th?

We'd settled ourselves for a March launch of the Motorola DEVOUR, but availability of the latest MOTOBLUR smartphone could be even sooner than that.  According to Phone Arena's tipster, the DEVOUR is actually primed to arrive through Verizon's Indirect Channel first, and will in fact do so from February 25th. General availability on Verizon, meanwhile, will be in place no later than March 25th.  No word on pricing, though.  The DEVOUR has a 3.1-inch capacitive touchscreen, optical trackpad, slide-out QWERTY keybaord and aluminum body, complete with a 3-megapixel camera with autofocus and EVDO Rev.A.
