Motorola to nix BLUR?

…Kinda. You see, Motorola has had the hardest time promoting MotoBLUR to the general public. It’s as Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha has said, “With MOTOBLUR, we have found that being able to convey the value proposition around MOTOBLUR is not an easy thing to do in a 30-second ad spot. We have decided that we will focus on the value proposition of products… Read more

Moto Cliq; 2.1 in the wild

Well what do we have here? The last time we heard about the Motorola Cliq finally getting an update to Eclair 2.1, was in a leaked road-map for T-Mobile that covered from July, until November. According to that road-map, the Cliq and Cliq XT should see BLUR 2.1 by early August, or about a week from now. Now this doesn’t mean you should expect the… Read more

Bell Canada launches Motorola DEXT

Bell Canada recently announced the release of the Motorola DEXT.  This Android 1.5 packing device is the same as the CLIQ here in the States.  It has a 5 MP AF camera and slide out QWERTY keyboard.  $79.95 CAD isn’t a bad price for an Android smartphone these days. Bell launches the exclusive Android-powered Motorola DEXT™ featuring MOTOBLUR™:… Read more

Square Motowhat = Motorola Flipout

Hey… Don’t I know you from somewhere? I know I’ve never actually met you, you just seem really familiar. I think the last time I saw you, you were doing math. What’s your name? The Flipout? Interesting. Alright, alright, alright. Enough of that. I’m sure all you faithful DroidDog fans know what I was talking about. Let’s forget that just happened… Read more

Devour now available

Motorola’s Devour is now available at Verizon stores and at their website for $149.99 with the activation of a new two year contract. The phone, which ships with Android 1.6, features a 3.1″, 320 x 480, HVGA screen; slide-out QWERTY; 3.0MP cam with video capture; optical trackpad; and MotoBlur. What do you think? Is $149 a good price for these budget specs?… Read more

Motorola i1

You might recognize this Blur / Android 1.5 device as the Opus One, and you’d be right. There isn’t much to be told quite yet about this Motorola branded iDEN Android device, but with CTIA right around the corner, that will change. Normally I wouldn’t dedicate an entire article to something like this, I just think it’s exciting to see yet another… Read more

Backflip unboxing from PhoneDog

I can’t say I’m super excited about this one but Moto’s follow-up to the Cliq is AT&T’s first Android and employs a nifty method for navigating the screen called backtrack (not to mention that kooky out-facing folding QWERTY). This one hits stores on March 7th for $99.99 on contract. I got to play with the Backflip a bit at CES and it was a nice looking… Read more

AT&T announces the Motorola Backflip

I got to check this one out in Las Vegas last month, and I walked away from the even wishing that the phone had some better specs (it is a budget device) and wondering if that keyboard, which is on the back of the phone when not in use, would be damaged in my pocket. The backtrack feature is pretty neat – allowing you no navigate the screen without… Read more

Hands on with the Cliq XT (Quench)

Check out PhoneDog’s European man on the scene reporting from Barcelona on the Cliq XT, otherwise known as Quench. It ships with Swype and is without a physical QWERTY. It’s got MotoBlur on top of Android 1.5> Has pinch-to-zoom and a nice looking virtual kb, but the screen is 3.1 inches at 320 x 480. Look for it on T-Mobile next month. Via… Read more

Get tub-side with Motorola

Taking a page out of T-Mobile’s book (see: Catherine Zeta-Jones), Motorola has started a new ad campaign using Megan Fox as their MOTOBLUR spokesperson. Can anyone out there think of a better way to start the campaign than to put Ms. Fox in a bathtub sending out pictures via BLUR? No? Then we are on the same page. The Superbowl ad most of you have seen… Read more
