    Droid X IS running MotoBlur

    I've seen some debate about whether or not the Droid X has Motoblur or Ninjablur or whatever.

    Android Central reported that it does not have Motoblur, but simply a custom skin for the Droid X...

    Tomatoes, To-mah-toes. Just because they aren't calling it MotoBlur, doesn't mean that Blur isn't lurking in the Droid X. Here is a screen shot of the system dump with plenty of Blur apps. Just FYI so that we have some concrete evidence of what the X has in store for us.

    I personally have no experience with MotoBlur other than playing with it at cell phone stores. I mostly put this up to to help keep people informed since there seem to be so many rumors about it flying around.

    It is a fact that Sense and Blur delay timely updates since the vendor has to do a lot of extra coding. That said, we didn't exactly get 2.1 in a timely manner even with stock Android on the Droid.

    Obviously, from the files it does have some connection with Blur. I think your post might confuse people that are looking for info, Tanknspank.

    Here's a quote from unwiredview.com about the Droid X Launch event:

    "Another interesting takeway from Droid X launch, was the total absence of Motorola Blur custom user interface from the event. When asked about it, Sanjay Jha, Motorola CEO, confirmed that MotoBlur is running on Droid X, but it has been hidden from the user."

    This also belongs in the droid X general discussion not the Droid discussion. We should try to keep the threads as organized as possible so people can find it where its relevant.

    Yes, it does have apps from motoblur, but it isn't the motoblur we all remember. Still, motoblur isn't the worst thing since the iPhone 4, so why does it matter if its on there or not? If your worried about upgrade time, buy a stock phone or root it when that access is gained.

    Droid X launch bits pt2: Motoblur (as we knew it), is dead. Beginning of the end for custom UIs? Unwired View
    Also from the article:

    Motorola must be the first to see the writing on the wall, and let Google take over the overall user experience. Motoblur is now just another Android app, that comes pre-installed on the handset. It does what it does pretty well, some Droid X users may love it. And, if they keep investing and developing it, Blur service can be a good point of differentiation for Motorola. But, by relegating the Blur to an Android app status, Motorola can move much faster both with OS, and Blur app upgrades.
    I take that as they can be updated seperately from each other. That would be totally differet from the old Blur.

    Now maybe u need to root or use ADB to remove the Blur apps. I dont know. But thats not the same as the old Blur.
    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
