Many of the upgraded features include enhanced photo-sharing and media syncing and location based social interaction.

    Guess I'll be the first to ask. Will this apply to phones like the X, D2, etc.? Or does anyone really know right now?

    I'm fairly certain it will be on the x and 2 in fact I'm pretty sure its the same version of blur that was on the 3.0 leak for the Droid 2.

    I'm pretty sure It will. Like I said it looks on the surface like the3.0 leak but i dont know how much was there feature wise. Hookbil tried it out, he's been stock lately, and iirc he liked it but had some battery issue that may have been attributed to a widget.

    The best update they could do to blur is make it optional.

    I'm not a big blur fan. I think I might be going back to stock soon. I guess I will have to in order to get the blur update.

    I don't mind blur. I bought the devour when it came out. Of course I realized in 48 hours the verizon rep had salestalked me into a peice of **** and switched for the OG droid. I missed blur for a bit since facebook and txt were my primary addictions. I don't know if I could go back to blur, but it wouldn't bother me that much if my phone had it when I upgraded.

    I tried the Connected Music Player when it leaked and its basically just a ripoff of TuneWiki that isn't even as good. And still nothing compared to apps like PowerAmp.

    And I still don't know why the insist only having Dialer and Contacts shortcuts in the dock bar...come on they take you to the same place just a different tab.

    Blur is not bad if it is used at the minimum that is why I run Apex with a few things removed.

    Alot of people probably like Blur, I just wish we were given the option to uninstall it and run Android naked.

    I have the OD that's running Liquid Gingerbread very well. I haven't seen a phone yet that's compelling me to upgrade. Even to get the Thunderbolt I'd have to go back to 2.2 and who knows when I'd get an upgrade?

    Used to have a Moto Dx. Now I have a Vzw iPhone 4. Motoblur made me do it, couldn't stand it anymore. Still use the x for navigation in my car and a few other things. I really think the manufacturers have cripplied Android with these UI overlays.

    With Launcher Pro Plus and ADW why are people complaining about Motoblur?
    It is suppose to be less blur-less. But with these two home switchers why not just change your Home Launcher to what you like... I did it with the DX. It has an HTC Sense Home Launcher with Beautiful Widgets.

    The problem is that Blur is integrated into the entire OS...the homescreen/UI is just one part of it. Third party launchers have sit on top of it. I actually don't mind a lot of the features of Blur, but from a software stand point its terrible. Buggy, laggy, and causes a lot of hangs up/crashes. HTC's Sense is an example of this kind of thing done right. Its similar to Blur feature wise, but the software its running on is much better...you don't get the frequent lag or crashes.

    I must be the only person that doesn't even notice a lag and hasn't had a crash or FC on my phone. Hmmm maybe I'm getting Old.

    This is exactly what I need to know about. I currently have an original Droid running ADW and the Pure Messenger and Calendar widgets. I am ready for a bigger screen, but I understand if I get either a Droid X or a Bionic I will have to deal with this Motoblur which everyone hates. Can I evade the Motoblur nanny-state by running ADW and the widgets I have had the audacity to actually choose for myself, or does that just introduce more lag on top of an already bad foundation?
