Android Central has copped a picture of what is probably a promotional box for the Motorola Devour, aka Calgary.
Word is, the device will be a competitively priced, entry-level phone equipped with Android 2.1 & Motoblur UI, and the Palm Pixi's MSM 7627 processor. It will feature an optical sensor instead of a trackball or D-pad, a 3.5mm headset jack, and a 3.2MP camera.
Here we go, another day another leaked picture of an upcoming Android phone. This is almost becoming a daily occurrence around these parts. This time it comes in the form of the follow up to the Samsung Galaxy, the Galaxy 2 enters the area.
This is one of the most rumored Motorola phones to date. The initial rumors stated that it will have a 3.7" WVGA display, 5 megapixel camera, 720p HD video, and 550 MHz processor. Which turned out not to be completely true but that’s how some rumors turn out right? Since then reports have been circulating that Motorola has indeed verified that this phone is coming and here is the real picture of it.
Among all of the new awesome additions of Android 2.1 is the genie widgets and the 3D gallery. Now you can enjoy both on you 2.0 phones and you can even run the Genie widgets on your 1.6 donut device. All you have to do is scan the QR Code and enjoy. More after the break.

Dear Nexus One Trackball,
You're white. All the time. Not only that, you don't even blink very often. You don't tell me what's going on with you, and I'm losing interest. I thought things would be different; I thought you would be vibrant and varied, willing to alert me instantly of texts, emails, and incoming calls in a rainbow of colors. There's so much to like about you, but this is really becoming a problem.
All you early adopters of the Euro HTC Hero, the one with the chin, now have something to smile about. A representative of Irish mobile operator Meteor has tipped of the guys at EURODROID that they received a notice from HTC that they should expect and update to Android 2.1 sometime in March.
Rooted Nexus One owners have a reason to rejoice: eminent Android hacker Cyanogen has cooked up a treat. Currently an experimental beta release, CyanogenMod 5.0 packs several enhancements that veteran root users already know and love.
Notable features include built-in USB tethering and Spare Parts with a compressed caching option, as well as a semi-transparent notification slider and reboot as an option from the power button. No doubt, other tweaks lie under the hood. As has become standard with CM releases, the Google apps are applied separately to avoid any legal kerfuffles.
Users should be able to expect a stable release in the very near future, but for now it's safe to say that this is a promising addition to the N1, and the future combination of Android and Cyanogen is looking bright.
