Why does everyone keep talking about a flash UI, yes it is being worked on, but i doubt that it will come to the KRZR. Motorola would have to write a whole new software interface and thats not really easy to do, what they have now works for them. All they will do as they did with the Razr, is take the regular motorola firmware setup and run a interface on top of it, that why the Verizon razr lagged really bad with the first initial firmware and still does a little bit.

So when you say flash based UI think about all the work that goes into making that UI. The manufacturer makes a standard Interface for all the carriers with a few modifications and everything works great. But verizon comes in and wants there own well this is where the problems and bugs start.

Another thing to mention is that LG made the initial UI for the 7000 thats why they were able to successfully make one for the 8300.

Take the samsung 990 for example, it came out same time as the 8300 and costs alot more wouldnt they put a flash based UI if it was easy to do? yes, but its not easy to do and make the phone work without bugs
