A pair of interesting stories have popped up this fine Sunday afternoon regarding one recent device and one up-until-now unheard of device from Motorola. Engadget’s come across a device called the Motorola Charm, which looks like it’s running a new version of MOTOBLUR.
The device has a form factor that might hit home with some Blackberry users. It has an exposed, portrait mode four-row QWERTY keyboard with capacitive control buttons sitting right above it. It features the new scalable widgets we’ve seen on other MOTOBLUR (or BLUR-like) devices as of late, as well as other new enhancements to the social networking integration you get with MOTOBLUR.
It’s running Android 2.1, and it’s interesting to note that the slide this was found on states the enhancements that come with this version of MOTOBLUR will be headed to the Motorola CLIQ and CLIQ XT as well – something I’m sure a lot of you Android 1.5 MOTOBLUR users on T-Mobile will be extremely pleased to hear.
For those of you with AT&T, you might be intrigued by another MOTOBLUR device that could be headed to the nation’s second largest carrier: the recently announced Motorola FLIPOUT. The device would be running Android 2.1 (presumably with the same MOTOBLUR upgrades found on the Charm) and is currently going through its rounds of testing that’s required of AT&T devices.
All of this isn’t official, but I can’t imagine that any of this would turn out to be untrue. Take it with a grain of salt, as you always should.
