Motorola releases official demo videos of its Android 4.0 skin

Motorola is getting ready to update some of devices to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. In preparation, they have released a series of videos showing off their latest version of their custom UI formely known as MotoBlur. The series of videos shows off the new Webtop 3.0, the new lock screen, screenshots, the browser, notifications, and much more.

Of course, if you’re one of the people running a leaked build of ICS for your Motorola device, then you’ve probably seen some of these features already.

Although Motorola has kept their custom UI in their ICS update, it looks like they’ve added some useful features and have gotten rid of some useless features. Overall, things aren’t skinned so badly that you don’t even recognize that you’re running Android 4.0 ICS.

The new lock screen features for shortcuts that let you access messaging, the dialer, the camera, or simply unlock the screen. On the top of the lock screen, there’s a new toggle that allows you to quickly silence your device. When it comes to social networking, Motorola has gotten rid of its all-in-one social networking app and is encouraging users to download Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn apps instead.

Based on these videos, it looks like Motorola is trying to do good things with its custom UI. There’s still no word on what will happen now that it has finally been acquired by Google. Either way, things are looking good.

Those of you with upgrade-able Motorola devices, are you looking forward to the new custom UI? Let us know in the comments below.
