Motorola EX225 Has Facebook Integration, But Is It An Android?

Any smartphone can run a Facebook app, Sony Ericsson has custom software for deeper integration into the OS, and manufacturers like INQ and HTC have models with dedicated Facebook hardware. Now Motorola looks like it will be joining that last group, with the revelation of the EX225.

Even with these low-res pics, you should be able to clearly make out the Facebook buttons at the bottom-left of the phone’s face. The keyboard-centric design is certainly reminiscent of other Facebook phones like the HTC ChaCha/Status, putting a premium on messaging ability.

We know from Bluetooth SIG records that the EX225 will have a petite 2.4-inch display, but most of the hardware specs are unknown.

The big question right now is just what OS the phone is running. You might jump to Android, with this very Blur-looking interface, but where are the Android buttons? Some speculation points to it running Brew instead of a more mainstream OS, but could there be another possibility? We’re still not sure what the fate of Android buttons will be once Ice Cream Sandwich arrives, so there’s the slim possibility that we really are looking at an Android phone, but one both running a custom UI as well as Android ICS; we’ll just have to wait to find out for sure.
