But, the major different in using sliders, BB-type or E6-type devices and This Form-type devices is that the screen doesn't seem small and it is just too much, way too much comfortable to type. Comfortable here as in quick and single-handed too.
Yes E6-like handsets does it too, the single handed and quick typing part, but the screen could be an issue for today's time.
I used E72 for a while but had to let it go for the same reason but I never put down my P1i by Sony Ericsson.
Another words of demand of this type of forms is the Nokia Asha 303. Everyone is loving that design. Again it is the same form-factor. Portrait touchscreen and portrait qwerty.
It does look BB-e72-e6-type but in use, its a huge different.

I'd appreciate it if you did a review of this fine cellphone sometime soon, GSMarena.

Which manufacturer ever care so much about the qwerty Android phone users?

For those who want this phone, you can get one in Hong Kong for around US$311! Unlock without contract! Can your I ? Music phone beat that? (not to mention the voice quality...unless you only use the phone as a tab)
US311 (or Eur233 or GBP 200) for a phone such spec, I think is a bargin!

The ideal users will be those in heavy one-handed texting, chat, emailing, documenting and so on.
Besides this I am not into clapping blindly over the numbers, there are lot more in a device to make it useful. I keep three handsets, one of this form, one full touch and a basic feature one which I want to replace with some entry level of smartphone on lower price.
If this type doesnt wow your types obviously I am not talking about your types, I am talking about my types, which maybe not as large as your types in numbers but they exist. Your types just need to understand that the world is lot more bigger than your ballybutton.
Portrait hardware QWERTY is so old-hat. Landscape sliders are where it's at.
Just get an Xperia Pro - better specs at a cheaper price.
Awesome, this phone is for BB users who do not like BB anymore but still like HW keys :D
Already available in Canada

The only good thing i read in the article was that its Android. But good luck using it on a phone this poor.
[deleted post]Tell me about it. I have no idea what firedragon below us is on about?! Did he create this phone or something. The specs are pants and it reminds me of a cross breed between the Blackberry 9700 Bold and the Blackberry 9800 Torch only withhout the slide. There is nothing new on this phone that stands out to me and says OH MY GOD! This is an outdated bit of kit. Come on motorola.
For those who said boring and copy-paste, this form is actually very very demanding among those who knows what they can do with it.
I waited this guy back when I saw it first. First I like Motorola, and second I want this form, portrait touchscreen and portrait keyboard. I maybe don't like Android much but I am agree to give it a go for a good form.
And will you ever heard S2's copy and paste design of iphone is creative and innovative? People will find hundreds of ways to bad mouth a not so popular company, and hundreds of ways to worship a popular company eventhough it's patterns are getting sued again and again lol. So typical
Wake me up when Motorola comes up with something original, innovative and interesting.
Copy and paste; made in haste engineering!
