The Motorola DEXT comes with an innovative feature called MotoBLUR. This great feature by Motorola basically integrates your social networking profiles, contacts, as well as your e-mails, all in one huge… blur. It aims for ease of access, so that only a click or two will access nearly everything. The DEXT prompts the user for a MotoBlur account registration, the first time it is powered up. You need to add all your social networking accounts (like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter) on it, and then add your e-mail details. The MotoBlur feature will download all your information from the respective websites, and display it in five neat piles; Happenings, Social Status, Messages, Weather and RSS feed reader. Happenings displays your friend's status updates (or tweets) and shows one update (or post) at a time. For getting to the next update, you need to swipe left.
However, the weak point of MotoBLUR is that it really is a blur. It's just a constant stream of information bombarding the 3.1 inch display and it's really hard to use quickly. As time has progressed, MotoBLUR has been changed to be less intrusive, but on the Motorola DEXT, it really comes off as too much information.
Contacts are arranged in a cool way, because when you click on a contact, there are several options to communicate with them (phone, text, e-mail, retweet, poke, etc). Messaging allows you to view direct messages (from Twitter), Facebook messages and all your e-mails, in one go. Social status is there to display your own update/post on your social networking account (most recently used one).
Another feature in MotoBlur is that of device location via GPS. So if your phone is lost, you can find it from up to 7 meters if the GPS is on. You can also delete your data, in case your phone is lost, via MotoBlur. The phone also features 3G, Wi-Fi, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
