| Here's what my guy has to say about the
| phone - It is running MOTOBLUR with
| Android 2.1 and has a sliding QWERTY
| keyboard.  The processor is said to be
| 600MHz and there's a 3-megapixel camera on
| it.  Not much, I know but it doesn't sound
| like any other Android phone we've seen so
| far.  Perhaps a new form factor and/or a
| Metro PCS exclusive?

| As per the usual chain of events, spy-
| shots lead to real productsâin this case,
| the Motorola Flipout. Running Android 2.1,
| it comes in a quirky little swivel-design
| similar to the Kin One.

| Motorola Milestone
| The Milestone, otherwise known as the Droid
| in other markets, is a neat package, coming
| in at just 13.7mm thick. Even more
| impressively the Milestone has a slide-out
| full QWERTY keyboard as part of the
| package.
| The 3.7-inch touchscreen is every bit as
| good as the HTC Hero's screen, the most
| common of the Android phones.
| The Milestone runs Android 2.0 and supports
| Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G support. The
| Milestone also supports multi-touch
| support, which the Droid in the US didn't.
| The 5MP camera, WiFi and A-GPS is fairly
| standard, as is the MicroSD slot and 256MB
| of RAM.


Motorola Droid 2 found in Verizon system, keyboard makes an online cameo? (update: specs)

,----[ Quote ]
| While we've got no way to confirm at the
| moment, here's some proverbial food for
| thought. A friendly reader last night
| published in our comment thread for the two
| rumored Verizon-bound Motorola devices with
| the above picture (subtitles added by us),
| claiming the bottom image is the Droid 2's
| upgraded QWERTY keyboard. The story goes
| that his friend had one but no other
| information is currently available -- the
| font on the keys is identical, and the mic
| icon on the bottom left is distinctively
| Android. If it's legit, we gotta say we're
| hopeful; the keys look to have a more
| protruding center à la the CLIQ, which
| should make typing on the little guy much
| easier than before. And if it's not the
| Droid successor, well, it's still something
| we haven't seen. Could this be the updated
| QWERTY-fied Android solution we've been
| waiting for? Time will tell.

Motorola Ming Line May Still Continue

,----[ Quote ]
| Motorola has been making Linux-powered
| smartphones since well before Google Android
| was conceived. The Linux OS was used on
| devices such as the Motorola Ming A1200, a
| powerful device which still has a loyal fan-
| following. Recent leaks show what may finally
| be the successor to the Motorola Ming.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
