Boy Genius reports that inside sources from Motorola have informed them of some changes the handset manufacturer is making to the Android OS. As you may know, Moto is coming out with several new Android smartphones this year. Apparently, they plan on releasing their own customized version of the OS, much like HTC did with the Hero.
This customized UI will combine information from social media sites like Facebook and Twitter with your contact list into one simple interface. This new Android 'skin' will be called 'Blur', and will be primarily web-based. You'll be able to update different sections of the OS and interface via the web, and a device key attached to your email will let users push content to the device straight from the web.
I think 'Blur' is a fantastic idea. Motorola is angling to become a primarily-Android manufacturer. If they want to ensure success with that, they'll need to bring something to the table that other Android manufacturers can't. A desirable, customized UI could give them a leg up on the competition. That is, if it can beat HTC's 'Sense' UI.
