Three of Motorola’s Android smartphones that come with MotoBlur, the Quench, Backflip and Dext, have been officially announced for Canada, where they’ll be available starting the first half of this year.
Presented as a “revolutionary social service for Android”, MotoBlur has received mixed reactions since it debuted last year with the Motorola Cliq in the US.
MotoBlur syncs all your friends, emails, feeds and so on with automatic updates from Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Gmail or Yahoo! mail. The service can also backup and restore information (your contacts, home screen customizations, email etc) via a server managed by Motorola.
Motorola says that the Quench, Backflip and Dext will be available via all three major Canadian carriers (Rogers, Bell and Telus), but it didn’t specifically mention which carrier gets which phone. The handsets will be joining the Motorola Milestone, the Android 2.0 device that’s already available in Canada.
