New Motoblur Handset Prototype Pictures

A few blogs have been reporting on what they claim to be the next generation Motorola handset – this one’s a Motoblur though it appears pretty squarer than the original Motoblur and appears to work on portrait mode.

But let me remind you that this story needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. The rumors about how the picture was obtained do not appear entirely convincing. The DroidDog blog writes,

“My source says his buddy’s dad works for Motorola and let his son take the phone to school, who, in turn, lent the phone to my source to be used as a calculator on a math test.”

The article has since then be removed though the author insists,

“Post removed at request of the leaker. It’s all over the place now so see it…all over the place. Looks like the square Moto is definitely real. I’ve seen more pictures, though I won’t post them unless I’m given permission”

So, here is the image of the leaked handset. What do you think of its authenticity? Soundbytes in the comments.
