Exclusive: Motorola bringing a "webOS" to Android? Called Blur?

August 7th, 2009 at 11:49 AM

Where would we be without our trusty Motorola ninjas? We’ve just got the drop on some exciting information about Motorola’s Android plans and how they hope plan to make a splash. Here’s what we’ve been told:

Motorola’s Android offering is definitely a customization of the Android user interface much like HTC has done. It will combine all personal contacts and social networking sites into a clean and easy to use interface. While it’s nice to know Moto is going to be throwing a skin on top of Android, what’s more interesting is the next part.

The skin/OS is named “Blur” by Motorola and will be heavily web-connected. All Android devices will be able to upgrade different sections of the OS and interface all over the air. There’s been something mentioned about a device key that’s attached to your email and passwords for your social networking accounts. What this presumably does is let all the content be pushed right to the device from the web which includes updates and actual upgrades.

That’s all we’ve got for now, but you can bet we’re digging for more information faster than Ed Zander.

UPDATE: Oh well. It seems Fortune reported some of this a couple days ago.
