Motorola, the company which is now owned by Google and is locked in a deadly cat fight with Microsoft in the courts, have been working on a new Android 4.0 skin set to debut on the Motorola RAZR and RAZR Maxx this quarter.
The company went ahead and released several video walkthroughs of its Android 4.0 skin, which in all honesty doesn't look bad at all, and it still keeps some of the vanilla Android flavor. While all the icons are different and a few things have been moved around, it won't pose much of a problem for those who prefer vanilla Android, you will be happy that Motorola chose to show some restraint.
One of the big changes is the lock screen. The new lock screen has four shortcuts, which allows the user to enter a specific section of the phone once the screen is unlocked. Not quite impressive, but it's a neat addition nonetheless. There's also a new camera application. The top feature here is the ability to take stills while recording video. This feature can also be found in the Samsung Galaxy S3. Motorola also went ahead and completely ditched its all-in-one social network application. Now the company is encouraging users to download applications from Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
