While it’s still unknown when we’ll see a 2.1 update on the Devour, it looks like Verizon has dropped a minor update that should keep you busy in the meantime.

It’s the usual bug fixes and minor application enhancements that we’ve seen carriers drop from time to time, so nothing to write home about, but it’s always nice to know that carriers and manufacturers are paying attention to your device. I haven’t had the opportunity to play with a Devour just yet (I’ll be happy to provide you with my address, Moto!), so I’m not able to give any first hand thoughts on the update but I’m sure the changes are welcome.


You may recall that Motorola doesn’t exactly have the best track record when it comes to their updates for Blur skinned phones, so hopefully this will be a much smoother affair. If anyone has flashed this already, drop us a line in the comments.

The change log is a PDF so I went ahead and took a screenshot and typed it up for those of you that despise Adobe Reader as much as I do:


Device Performance

  • Improved response time when Menu, Home, and Back keys are pressed
  • Adjustments to improve the accuracy of signal strength indicators on the display
  • Stability improvements made to browser, contacts, and V CAST Music with Rhapsody applications

  • Volume keys will now function within the Mobile IM application
  • Improvements made to ensure pictures are uploaded in the correct orientation

Email and Calendar

  • Changed display when setting up new email accounts, prompting users to use a back slash instead of a forward slash
  • Enhanced Exchange ActiveSync Calendar agenda view to display meeting titles
  • Verizon.net email accounts will now auto-configure


  • Overall improvements to ringer, voice dialing application, and multimedia audio when using a headset
