Motorola’s looking to get their feet wet with web applications for Android-based phones (or phones with webkit-based browsers, more accurately) by purchasing 280 North – the team behind the easy-to-learn web framework Cappuccino. The sale went down for $20-million and it said to help put Motorola in a better position to create better Android experiences for the many people who buy their phones.

No other details about the purchase or types of web applications were given, but it’s now clear as day that Motorola’s just as serious about stepping the software side of their Android game up as any other high-end manufacturer.
