Moto Android phones to mimic webOS?

Moto Android Blur UI

A new leak Friday afternoon suggests that Motorola's Android phones will ship with a radically different user interface. Nicknamed "Blur," it would borrow conceptually from Palm's webOS and merge both personal contacts and social networking into a unified front end. It would also have a unique device ID system that would streamline pushing data by allowing both social network updates and individual Android components to be updated quickly and over the air.

Motorola has already confirmed that it will launch two Android phones before the year is out. These are widely expected to include the Sholes QWERTY slider for Verizon (also known as the Calgary) and the Morrison, a slightly similar design for T-Mobile. If these use Blur, Motorola will be only the second company known to be customizing Android, as HTC has already done so for the Hero.
