Motorola’s Android Effort Influenced by webOS?

For quite some time, we’ve known that Motorola is all in with Android while kicking Windows Mobile to the curb. According to a BGR report, sources say the Motorola Android phones coming this fall will be heavily influenced by Palm’s webOS. Their version of Android will place a heavy emphasis on social networking.

Similar to webOS on the Palm Pre, the Motorola effort dubbed “blur” will integrate contacts from your social networking sites. Sound familiar? If true, it’s certainly not surprising and we’ll likely see more manufacturers borrowing from Palm’s webOS. The Motorola Android phones might find their way to market sometime in the fall. It will be interesting to see what aspects of webOS find their way into their skinned version of Android.
