Motorola Devour or Droid II?

My dad went to Verizon last week for an Android phone and they sold him a Motorola Devour (it's really solid, they told him. A great phone. No problems.). I advised him to go back and take at the Droid II; it will be running the latest software and should get updates the next year or two. The Devour, however is end-of-life, sold running very outdated software. I'm not steering my dad wrong am I? If the Devour is in fact some amazing 1.6 phone that's easier to use and better than the current Droid X / II / Incredible I'll let him know to stay with it.

You're completely correct. Perhaps they're trying to clear their dead stock of Devour's. Droid 2 is definitely a better choice if he wants a keyboard, but the Incredible is a better phone if it doesn't matter. If size isn't an issue, get the Droid X. I'd go for the Droid X myself -- after having the Evo, the Incredible looked tiny to me.

Wow, I just looked at the specs of the Devour (the only thing I knew about the phone was that it went from debut to EOL in a shockingly scant 5 months). It sucks! The screen is just teeny tiny, but on the whole it doesn't look any smaller than the Droid 2 because there's so much phone/bezel surrounding it. It's running 1.6 with slim chance of any upgrades while the Droid 2 ships with 2.2. This is really a no brainer. I feel bad for the people who got suckered in to purchasing the Devour.
