Motorola, having just released a hugely successful Android smartphone, just decided they’re not quite done. Released on the 25th of March, the Motorola Devour is another home run for the million dollar corporation, acting like a little brother to the much-loved Droid. Being a budgeted down version of the Droid, it is a bit featured-down as well, having a 3-megapixel camera instead of a 5-megapixel, and running the 1.6 version of Android instead of the 2.0. Also, the keyboard is a little bit different and the material being an industrial silver instead of the classy black on the Droid. Although the Devour is different from the Droid, it’s definitely not stripped down of features as not everybody uses the uncountable components on the Droid, thus having a cheaper variation to Motorola’s smartphone lineup.

The Motorola Devour was built as a durable and reliable smartphone for those who have a rounded down range of needed features, but as a general note, we’d want something more than Android 1.6, considering so many other smartphones are already operating on better software, plus, a bigger screen would be greatly appreciated.

iPhone 3Gs – The iPhone 3Gs is Apple’s re-entry into the cellular market, a year after their large release of the iPhone 3G. The ‘S’ in 3Gs stand for speed, which comes in a couple ways; firstly, the processor is twice as fast as the previous one found in the 3G model, and provides smoother browsing and a faster general loading time. The third generation of the iPhone also expects better networking speeds, with carriers changing over to a HSDPA connection, capable of up to 7.2 mbps. In all aspects, the iPhone 3GS is a strong renewal of a great phone with noticeable improvements in speed.

Motorola Droid – The Droid is Motorola’s entry into the Android smartphone market, and it was their best release of any gadget since the Razr in 2004. This multimedia smartphone definitely puts Motorola to a head start in the fast developing smartphone race, with a great keyboard, an easy-to-use, very sensitive large touch screen and a beautiful design, both internally and externally. With a bigger screen than the iPhone’s, a better pixel-per-inch number and an astonishing 16:9 HD aspect ratio, videos look amazing and browsing is crystal clear. Overall, the Motorola Droid is a fully featured, multimedia, gorgeous smartphone, which can do more than you need, in both style and ease.

Blackberry Bold 9700 – The Blackberry Bold 9700 or simply Bold 2 is RIM’s remake of the very successful (at the time) Blackberry Bold. It basically addresses all of the issues that have developed over the past year including the problematic trackball, the bulky size and the not too impressive camera. The 9700 is being sold with Blackberry’s new 5.0 operating system which has improved many aspects, and also the trackpad is quick to being favoured over the previous trackball. This smartphone is finally a perfect mix of multimedia with formal enterprise business, making it the best revision of a phone so far.
