Verizon is offering it through various plans such as Nationwide Talk plans for $39.99 monthly access, Nationwide Talk & Text plans at $59.99 monthly access and an unlimited data package access that will cost you $29.99 monthly.
Verizon Wireless has a second handset from Motorola Inc. that uses Google Inc.’s Android software: The Devour.
The Devour has a 3.1-inch, 320-by-480 pixel touchscreen. The resolution is comparable to the iPhone but lower than the Droid, which boasts a 3.7-inch, 480-by-854 pixel display. While specifics about the Devour’s processor have yet to be revealed, the phone is expected to be more of a midrange Android option compared to Droid’s higher-end status. It’s rumored to run on the Qualcomm 600-MHz MSM7627.
The Devour also features Motoblur, a software package from Motorola that displays e-mails and content from such sites as Twitter and Facebook on one screen. Motorola’s Cliq, which launched through T-Mobile USA last year, also used Motoblur, but the Droid did not.
Motorola, for its part, sees Android-powered smart phones as the way out of a deep multiyear sales slump. It has said it plans to launch about 20 models this year, of which the Devour would be the first.
