Because all military spec phones need moto blur. When i think construction workers and marines, the first thing that comes to mind is "where my tweets at"

Casio made rugged phones for "construction workers and marines" and lots of everyday people bought them due to the rugged nature. Why not include moto blur?

I'm just not the biggest fan of the moto blur UI. It feels really sluggish and it looks marketed towards the former sidekick generation. Don't get me wrong, i absolutely think that the market could finally use a military spec smartphone, because so far we have only seen entry level and mid range "dumbphones" that have those specs. I just think that for a first entry the stock android experience would be a better feel as it runs a little more smoothly imo.

Was that a typo or did he really mean "2.5 mm" audio jack?

It'll probably look good if anything. Being iDEN, dunno about speed..

Actually, I take that back. I remember seeing a vid of some kid who 'found' the test model of it, and he showed the web, which ran pretty decent. It is good looking if that counts...

Phone Scoop said that Opera Mini will be the default web browser for the phone. Great news!!!

As great as it is to have a phone that is military standardized, it's a little upsetting that they didn't put more effort into it. The phone only has a 2.5mm head jack, why not 3.5mm? It only runs android 1.5, why wouldn't you put at least android 2.0 or higher? If your planning on getting this phone, be sure to buy an extended battery or carry a charger in your pocket cause it only has a 3.5 hr talk time. I feel Motorola could've put a little extra effort into this phone.
