Motorola DEXT review: first look

Can Motorola's first Google Android-based handset, the DEXT, keep up with the rest of the crowd?

Motorola has bitten the bullet and launched its first Google Android-powered device in the form of the DEXT. It's also the first handset to showcase the company's MOTOBLUR technology.

We got up close and personal with the device last night to see if it really is all that.

Android is the golden child of the mobile market at present, enjoying its time in the limelight and getting love from seemingly everyone (except the obvious few) in the industry.

Looking up

Of late, everyone has been a bit worried about Motorola. It's like when you find out that an old friend you don't keep in touch with much is a bit unwell.

But with the arrival of DEXT, things are looking up for the US company.
