Out with the old, and in with the new. With the Motorola Droid X and HTC Incredible filling up Verizon’s upper-tier smartphone lineup, the eight-month-old Droid and five-month-old Devour are hitting the dusty trail. Verizon’s still selling both handsets, but they won’t be recieving any more shipments from Motorola, so be sure to get ’em before they’re gone. There are a few other handsets that are tapering off as well, like the BlackBerry 9630 Tour, which has been replaced with the Bold 9650, and the Nokia Twist, currently on a BOGO sale. A handful of Samsung feature phones are being phased out too, like the Knack, Smooth, Intensity, and Saga, but the Motorola handsets are the big ones to be headed out the door.
The Droid kicked off Verizon’s foray into Android handsets, and has since spawned a rather successful ad campaign and slew of phones not only from Motorola, but HTC as well. Though the Devour occupied more of a mid-range spot and failed to really impress anyone, it did offer a slightly more affordable alternative to the Droid. The Droid 2 is just around the corner though, and should fulfill Motorola’s quota for a landscape-slider Android handset.
