Motorola CEO blames open Android Market for device woes; MOTOBLUR adding greedy app alerts

Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha has blamed poorly tested third-party Android apps for underwhelming performance on Android phones and tablets, claiming that 70-percent of all of the returned devices the company sees are rejected because applications have affected usability. "For power consumption and CPU use, those apps are not tested," Jha said during a webcast of the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Technology conference. "We're beginning to understand the impact that has."

T-Mobile Motorola CHARM outed: QWERTY MOTOBLUR candybar

T-Mobile Motorola CHARM outed: QWERTY MOTOBLUR candybar

Having been spotted in various leaks before now, it comes as little surprise to see Motorola officially announce their latest Android smartphone, the Motorola CHARM.  Due to arrive on T-Mobile USA this summer, the CHARM has a 2.8-inch touchscreen with a full QWERTY keyboard underneath; it runs Android 2.1 with the latest iteration of Motorola's MOTOBLUR social networking aggregation.

Other hardware includes a fixed-focus 3-megapixel camera paired with Kodak image processing technology and - like we saw on the Motorola BACKFLIP - a trackpad on the back of the phone which can be used to navigate on-screen without blocking the display with your chubby fingers.

Motorola QUENCH/CLIQ XT with MOTOBLUR lands at MWC

Motorola has become a very prolific maker of Android phones, which is a good thing considering before Android the company was making some very boring handsets and hadn’t had a popular device since the Razr years ago. The company now has some of the hottest Android devices around like the DROID and others.

Motorola MB300 Backflip/Enzo leaks: MOTOBLUR, odd form-factor and AT&T

Motorola MB300 Backflip/Enzo leaks: MOTOBLUR, odd form-factor and AT&T

More detail - and some far better photography - has emerged regarding one of Motorola's next Android devices, the Motorola MB300 variously known as the Motorola Backflip, the Motorola Enzo and the Motorola Motus.  As was speculated, the smartphone has an unusual form-factor in that the QWERTY keyboard folds back against the screen section, leaving both exposed; the 5-megapixel camera with LED flash is embedded into the left-hand side of the keyboard, and there's a trackpad on the back of the display.

Motorola CLIQ and MOTOBLUR review

Motorola CLIQ and MOTOBLUR review

As Motorola have found over the past couple of years, it's taking an increasing amount to get geeks and gadget lovers to stand up and pay attention to a new cellphone. Right now, one sure-fire way of doing that is by launching an Android device, and so that's what the ailing mobile giant has done in the shape of the Motorola CLIQ (aka the DEXT outside of the US). Not only does the CLIQ promise to make a splash among Android handsets, it also marks the debut of Motorola's attempt to corral social networking into a mobile device. In our review we'll not only be looking at the CLIQ hardware, as Motorola's first-generation Android smartphone, but at MOTOBLUR and its potential beyond the CLIQ. Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Moto X Review

Moto X Review

Motorola needed to reinvent itself, and the Moto X is the result of that forced evolution. Guided - albeit at a remove - by new owner Google, the Moto X attempts to do what, arguably, no other Android phone before it has: step off the "biggest, fastest, brightest" treadmill and focus instead on the sort of real-world functionality that Motorola claims will make a significant difference for users. In doing so, though, Motorola pits itself against handsets that on paper at least are much more powerful than the Moto X, despite being the same price. Crazy strategy, or does X mark the spot for the future of Android? Read on for the full SlashGear review.
