Motorola open to Windows Phone 7 and MOTOBLUR on other devices

Motorola has been struggling more than some phone makers with the poor economy. The fact that before Android Motorola hadn't had a popular device since the RAZR didn't help things. When Android became popular Motorola pretty much abandoned WinMo and clung to Android the way a drowning man clings to a bit of driftwood.

IntoMobile reports that Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha has said that Motorola is considering offering Windows Phone 7 devices. There are no hard details, but you can bet Motorola is keen to try any mobile OS that will help it increase market share.

Jha also said that Motorola is looking to bring MOTOBLUR to devices other than smartphones. Specifically Motorola is looking to put MOTOBLUR onto set top boxes. That would mean the boxes will run Android. This could be a big deal since many cable companies around the country use Motorola boxes. How cool would it be to get an Android-powered cable box from your local cable company.
