MWC 2011: Motorola to update Motoblur, acquires 3LM, expected to announce Droid X2 and Droid 3

It seems that the oft-shunned Motoblur UI that “graces” Moto’s Android devices is getting an overhaul with heavy focus on social connectivity and multimedia. A three pronged attack, Connected Music is a Ping-like social music platform, Connected Gallery aims to streamline all your photos with online services such as Facebook, Flickr, and more, and Aloqa is a location based technology that will farm your friends list, location, interests, and more in order to allow advertisers to better send you updates regarding deals and bargains in your area, should you be insane enough to opt in. Also added is MotoConnect, a suite consisting of MediaLink 1.5 and ZumoCast which focuses on syncing all your online identities in one place and allows for cloud-based media and file sharing.

Motorola also snagged up Three Wolf Moon Laws Mobile (3LM) in late December and is now working on implementing the newly acquired security firm’s technology to make its Android products more secure and appealing to enterprise users.

Lastly Moto is expected to unveil the Droid X2 and Droid 3 at MWC, but spyshots of the Droid X2 have already been leaked from it being seen out in the open at MWC and unofficial specs have also been posted. Expect the X2 to rock an NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, a qHD display, the new Motoblur, an 8 megapixel rear camera no front-facing camera, 3G only, and Froyo. Less is known about the Droid 3 but a Tegra 2 processor and an improved keyboard are rumored. Spy shots of the Droid X2 after the break.
