Devastators can select a Drop Pod as a dedicated transport, as described in the Codex.

although the only real use would be if you equipped them with heavy flamers as drop-podding counts as moving, and as you know you cannot fire heavy weapons after moving.

However, Devastators cannot take heavy flamers. I actually can see buying them a drop pod, though. It's inexpensive, and if you don't mind not getting a turn of shooting as you disembark from the thing, you can deploy them in an optimal position to do their thing. Another option would be not to give them heavy weapons at all. Seriously. Just use 'em as another Tactical Squad sans the special weapon. I suppose that's only useful when you've filled your six Troops choices-- but it's an option all the same.

Really. Oh yea, well, there goes that idea .

I can see the benefits of the drop pod, but overall, I wouldn't. It really depends on what you want them to do, and how badly you need that first turn of shooting. Remember, they may not always land where you want, so IMHO not a great idea to put devs in a drop pod. However, TSoH's idea, is a good one if you want that extra squad on the ground, harrassing enemy troops.
