We’ve only had a screenshot and some leaked specs for the Motorola Kobe before, and now we’re finally seeing images of the device emerge, which should straddle the mid-range to high-end smartphone lineup for the carrier. The Kobe, also known as the Diablo internally, will definitely be a step up from the mid-range Backflip, also available on AT&T with its unique backflipping keyboard.
From the images, it seems that unlike the Droid X, which Motorola had used an updated UI and called it just a widgets-based UI on top of Android rather than MOTO BLUR, the Kobe looks to be using a similar MOTO BLUR UI like that on the Backflip. The difference can be seen on the built-in shortcuts to the phone and contact icon on the bottom of the home screen flanking the App Drawer where those icons are encapsulated inside tiles–the new widgets-based UI on the Droid X and Droid 2 do not have tiles surrounding those shortcut icons.
