Motorola Devour

Exciting news for Motorola Devour users, as Verizon is now pushing out OTA (over the air) updates for the Android-powered device. Though this isn’t the much-anticipated 2.1 update that everyone is waiting for, it is a release that improves on the previous version and fixes quite a few bugs.  The software version update, CALAND_X_01.15.08P, offers the following changes:

Enhancements:

  • 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.
  • Multiple enhancements to incoming call performance.
  • Volume keys will now function within the Mobile IM application.
  • Improvements made to ensure pictures are uploaded in the correct orientation.

Email and Calendar

  • Improved functionality to allow users to more easily delete POP3 email accounts.
  • 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.

Audio

  • Overall improvements to ringer, voice dialing application, and multimedia audio when using a headset.
  • DEVOUR 1.15.83 includes updated versions of Google applications.

The painstaking wait for 2.1 can only last so much longer.  With most Android devices already having 2.1 or scheduled to get it in the near future, the Devour is bound to receive it around the same time.  Regardless, we'll take what we can get.  Devour owners, does the update quench your Android thirst, or are you holding out for 2.1?
