Motorola Square Android phone

Far be it from us to scoff at that hideously square Motorola Android phone -- possibly called the Twist -- that made the rounds over the weekend, but, well, it was pretty bad. But just because it's bad doesn't mean it might not exist, and Android France snagged what appears to be specs of the blockish Motoblur device. Size is listed at 67x67mm, and just less than 16mm thick, with a 2.8-inch screen at 320x240 pixels. Quad-band EDGE and dual-band HSPA is listed (with North American 3G freqs, to boot). There's also a 3MP camera, 512MB ROM/256MB RAM, WiFi b/g, aGPS, a TI OMAP 3410 processor at 700MHz ... and a mere 940 mAh battery.

Real or not, that's a tiny phone, and a tiny battery. And it's square. (And it has Motoblur.) Really, people, is this something you'd want in your pocket? []

Maybe that square Moto Android phone is real after all (and called the Twist)


This phone is disgusting. So is the backflip. So is motoblur in general; please stop putting it on every gimmicky phone and continue to make real phones that aren't a gimmick like the Droid.

I agree with your frustration/angst with gimicky phones and Motoblur (terrible). However, I think some of us have to remember that a lot of people like "cute" stuff and, though it may be clutter to us, many don't mind a lot items on the screen. I think the fact that we're commenting on AndroidCentral reveals that we are not the average consumer.

I haven't ever really used it, but it seems like Motoblur is annoying. From what I've seen I would never want a blur device. I like the Google experience type of phones, and I think I'm going to try to stick with that.

Probably just another unpopular unnecessarily limited phone headed to AT& it can be further limited by removing the ability to download 3rd party apps. Leave it to the home of the iPhone to make even Android lame.
