Motorola Will BLUR the Line Between Phones and Cable Boxes
Feb 19, 2010, 5:30 PM by Philip Berne
Motorola co-CEO Sanjay Jha, speaking to the Wall Street Journal, said today that Motorola's cable set-top boxes will get more social networking features in the future, including the company's MOTOBLUR interface, currently in use on Motorola's Android-based handsets, like the Motorola Cliq on T-Mobile. Motorola plans to split in two soon, spinning off its set-top box and cell phone divisions into one of two new companies. To that end, Jha commented that the two disparate products could soon share a common operating platform, though he stopped short of saying that would be Google's Android OS, and even mentioned that he would prefer Motorola develop its own operating platform. The company is currently testing BLUR on set-top boxes, and new models with the social networking features could appear as early as this year, or could slip to 2011.
