Don't really care about Moto Blur... just interested in the phone and Android.

yea i think i could do without my friends facebook and myspace and tweet all over my phone. Its insane how connected some people wanted to be with those social networks.

well if you have 600 friends it's kinda fun to use facebook on the phone. :-)

600 friends really aren't your friends... I would guess 20-50 tops, the others are fluff b/c you are a facebook/myspace friend whore. But that would be annoying... it would show that you have 800 unread messages every second as morons update their status every 5 minutes... it is a little rediculous. I think motoblur is cool, but who's to say that a ROM update won't have motoblur later. Or leave it to XDA to cook one up for you.

600 people are not your friends, they are just people you know. Friends would take a bullet for you.

MotoBlur was targeted for a younger audience. The Tao or MotoDroid is suppose to be an "adult" phone.

I am gald it won't have motoblur! and the new name actually suits the phone since its the first Android phone on Verizon... it makes sense... I just hope the phone doesn't look like in the recently posted photos. I really like it on the older photos from motofan.ru

I don't know if that info is completely accurate. I spoke with a VZW MOTO rep today, who told me that it will have MOTO blur, he had just come back from a MOTO conference in Chicago and everyone was given a gag order, so he couldn't show me the phone, but he did say MOTOBlur will be on this device. So it will be interesting to see who is right on this latest rumor.

I don't want MOTOBLUR, the review for the moto cliq said that blur was a fail. It totally cluttered up the home page. Its cool to have some connection with facebook/twitter but there's an app for that. Disclaimer: not apple related.
