Ah yes, the good ol’ “About Phone” screen that we’ve all come to know and love. The reason we treat these rumors without much excitement is because we all know how easy it is to edit files in Android’s firmware to change what the “About Phone” screen says. It’s easy to fake an Android 2.1 screen, and it’s happened way too many times in the past.
Still, we feel the need to report on this latest finding that shows a version of MOTOBLUR (some believe it to be from the Motorola CLIQ, specifically) running on top of Android 2.1. The screenshot was reported by Android Community who received it through a tipster. I’d really like for this to be true so our MOTOBLUR brethren can get up to speed with where most other handsets are today (besides the obvious Froyo candidate – the Google Nexus One – that should be receiving the update sometime very soon).
