The only Android phone i've used is the Droid, which folks say runs a vanilla os. Now that I'm thinking of upgrading, I hear the Droid Razr has Moto Blur. What is it? What changes does it make to the os?

Moto Blur is a "skin" layed over the OS. It doesn't really change much other than appearance and some added widgets.

Yeah, but don't forget the part were it generally slows down you phone, and how much better stock android is.

I personally think the blur dialer, camera, and Exchange sync are much better than the AOSP versions. That is the main reason I haven't installed CM on my Droid X, I need to have a couple blur apps.

Oh, if only I could. I think the nearest Verizon store is like 1 hour away. So, that's why I'm asking what all is changed in Blur? what's added?
And if there's any pics of these in Blur?

When I google pics of it, I seem to only get pics of the main social widget.
If it weren't for the previous posted, I wouldn't know that it has a blur dialer and camera.

what else does it have/change?

Didn't they ditch the name Blur to Motorola Application Platform or something bland like that?

Ditch that cause you're just going to get outdated stuff.

Just look up videos of Bionic walkthroughts. The interface on that is pretty much what the Razr will have.

Personally I hate android skins. Most manufacturers don't ever do it right(Samsung), I don't think blur looks to bad but I like stock a lot more.

Yeah the newer iterations of philblur look pretty cool IMO. The cool blue scheme, 3d scrolling and shiny widgets is pretty cool. Plus the app droor let's you organize apps according to folders.
