Will Motorola use push technology to differentiate its Android phones?

Motorola confirmed today that two major U.S. carriers will launch its Android phones later this year. Such carrier support will buoy Motorola's prospects but, according to a Forbes report, the handset maker has a trick up its sleeve. Analysts told Forbes they believe Motorola will use push technology to differentiate its Android phones from others in the market, sending updates from social networking sites directly to users' phones. The software, called "Blur," takes Palm's Synergy approach one step further by gathering updates from multiple email addresses and social networking sites and sending them to the phone via a network operations center. This, in theory, could allow the phones to get the updates without hogging bandwidth or draining the battery. Article
