thanks for posting this. i had the BGR link saved for when you started the section
the important thing about this phone is that it IS half a droid.. i'm pretty sure its a dumb phone that is really cool and running android. that means you may be able to get it without a data plan! so for those of you looking at the droid because of the form factor and *some* of the features, but don't want/need the data plan, this might be a good alternative for you...
What makes you think you will be able to get this without a data plan? The Motoblur itself is going to require a dataplan to pull in your Twitter/Facebook etc stuff.
But as with the announced Backflip that has MotoBlur, that also means it will be Android 1.5
