Motorola STBs to feature MOTOBLUR
February 23, 2010
After announcing that it will split into two separate entities, Motorola’s co-CEO, Sanjay Jha, has said Motorola is looking for ways to combine the features of TV set-top boxes and mobile phones. Consumers will be able to more efficiently share photos, video, and other multimedia with their STB.
According to WSJ, Motorola is planning to add its social networking MOTOBLUR application to its TV boxes, which could be hitting the market as soon as next year. In the US MOTOBLUR currently runs on Motorola’s Android handsets like the Motorola CLIQ on T-Mobile and the DROID on Verizon Wireless, and it provides quick-access to social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
