MOTOBLUR has just been introduced in Australia along with two new smartphones called DEXT and BACKFLIP. Developed by Motorola and built on Android, MOTOBLUR features customisable widgets that serve one purpose: to help you socialise online.
Widgets are MOTOBLUR's defining feature, and it's love at first touch for social networkers. The "Happenings" widget live streams all your one-to-many communications, such as Twitter and Facebook updates, while the "Messaging" widget live streams all your one-to-one communications, like emails, missed calls and text messages.
There's a widget that lets you add RSS feeds for your favourite sites, and another gives you the option of updating your status on all sites in one go (or not). Most importantly, you don't pay to send and receive content from widgets. Not a cent, not a kilobyte.
MOTOBLUR is available now on DEXT and BACKFLIP. See Optus' website for full details.
