    Motorola launches first Android-powered device


    Motorola today unveiled the Android-enabled DEXT with MOTOBLUR.
    Developed by Motorola, MOTOBLUR is the claimed to be first and only solution to synch contacts, posts, feeds, messages, e-mails, photos and more-from sources such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Gmail, Yahoo, your work e-mail and LastFM – and automatically deliver it all to the home screen. 
    Also announced today was the Motorola DEXT with MOTOBLUR, the first device in the company's Android-enabled product portfolio.
    "MOTOBLUR, which will be available on multiple Motorola Android-powered devices in our upcoming portfolio, helps us to create phones that are instinctive, social and connected," said Ralf Gerbershagen, Vice President and General Manager of Motorola Western Europe.
    "Today's mobile phone needs to be more than just ‘smart'. It needs to be social. The DEXT is such a phone, offering the ability to funnel your entire social life into a single stream."
    MOTOBLUR is said to leverage Motorola's experience in mobile Linux and open platforms and benefits from the global MOTODEV program that supports developers creating a new generation of rich user experiences for Motorola handsets featuring the Android operating system.
    DEXT will be available exclusively launching with Orange in the UK and France, Telefonica in Spain and America Movil in Latin America. Known as CLIQ in North America, the device will be available exclusively with T-Mobile USA.
