Motorola, in partnership with Optus, has released a new social networking tool for Android-powered smartphones.
From April 9, Motoblur will be available across a range of Motorola 3F Android-powered devices, starting with the upcoming Motorola DEXT and Motorola Backflip releases.
The software syncs a user’s contacts, emails, posts, messages, photos and more from sources such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Gmail, work and personal email, and LastFM. Content is automatically pushed straight to the home screen, in east-to-manage streams.
For its part, Optus has released a number of new mobile plans, called Optus ‘yes’ Social plans, and Optus ‘yes’ Business Complete plans, which provide unlimited access to Motoblur ‘Happenings’, Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and YouTube.
Motorola DEXT is available for $0 upfront on the ‘yes’ Social $49 plan over 24 months, while the Motorola Backflip is available for $0 upfront on the ‘yes’ social $59 plan over 24 months.
