No Blur on Motorola XOOM confirmed

No Blur on Motorola XOOM confirmed
A Motorola spokesman has confirmed to IntoMobile that the upcoming Motorola XOOM will be launched without MotoBlur. While many prospective buyers of the tablet were a little concerned about reports that the manufacturer was going to include the Blur UI as an update for the tablet in the future, the spokesman for the Schaumburg based company rejected that notion.

The Motorola spokesman said that with the XOOM being the first Android 3.0 device, the company worked very closely with Google to develop the tablet, which is a Google Experience device. With this in mind, Motorola decided not to include MotoBlur on the XOOM. If this all sounds familiar, it is. These were the same exact reasons Motorola gave for not "blurring" the original DROID smart phone which was the first to market with Android 2.0.

The good news is that now XOOM users will be able to experience Honeycomb just the way nature Google intended. And it won't be too long until the tablet is in the hands of those patiently waiting for its release; as we reported, Best Buy is planning to launch the Motorola XOOM on February 17th for a non-contract price of $699.99.
