Somehow we think we've heard this tune before. Motorola confirmed to Engadget in regards to the new Sprint Photon 4G that the "Motoblur" name is being phased out. But it's in name only -- the skin and services remain the same as they ever were.
This isn't exactly a new idea, folks. It was nearly a year ago that Motorola told us exactly the same thing at the Droid X launch event in New York City, and they made big enough deal of it. But Blur remained (and all of its packages were still named Blur on the device), the Blur services remained, and we desperately sought out a new name for it.
And, thus, Philblur was born.
