Motorola’s unveils Devour, the shape of Google’s Nexus Two?

I wonder if the next Google phone — the Nexus Two — will use the same industrial design as the Android-based “Devour” phone that Motorola unveiled this morning.

Motorola’s said it’s going to build a Nexus and Google has hinted that it will sell one with a keyboard, so how about Devour hardware with a faster processor and better camera? I’ve asked both companies if this is the case (ha ha) and will update if they clarify.

Update: A Google spokeswoman said: “All I can say publicly is that the Nexus One is the first in what we expect to be a series of products, which we will bring to market with our operator and hardware partners.” Moto’s rep said “We can’t comment on rumor, speculation or future plans.”

The Devour announced today is a slider with a keyboard plus a 3.1-inch touchscreen, full HTML browser, 3 megapixel camera and 8 gig memory card.

Verizon is going to start selling the phone in March, but announcing it today gets ahead of the herd of new phones that will be announced this month around the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona.
