Motorola preparing WebOS-like Blur Android UI?

We all know that Motorola is readying several Android smartphones, but it looks like the company wants to do more than just providing the hardware for the handsets.

According to Boy Genius Report, Motorola is working on a customized User Interface that should run on top of Android – this reminding us of what HTC has done with the Sense UI, or what Sony Ericsson wants to do with Rachael’s UI.

Motorola’s customized interface will apparently be called Blur. It will be upgradeable over-the-air and “heavily web-connected”, combining “personal contacts and social networking sites into a clean and easy to use interface.” Somewhat similar to Palm’s WebOS platform, which has proven to be quite successful until now.

Further details about Motot’s Blur Android UI are missing. Let’s hope that we’ll see this working on a smartphone before the end of 2009.
