    Bits of information seem to be leaking from all over the web on Motorola's next super phone and here is one more piece to add to the collection. We have heard rumors of the Motorola Droid 2 and Motorola Shadow, but Engadget is now reporting the Motorola Xtreme is born!
    I know that's not much to go by, but in Engadget we trust! We are digging for more information, so stay tuned...

    Thanks for the tip Wuyanks!

    keyboard layout on that looks like it'd be hard to use... they moved a lot of keys from where you'd normally expect to see them.

    I thought gamers wanted the d pad on the left? If so why have they not moved it?

    That is a very old render that most likely bears almost no resemblance to the phones we are talking about. According to some very connected ppl on Howard Forums the Shadow will be the Droid Extreme and is keyboardless. The 'Droid 2' will sport an updated but similar look to the current Droid and will retain a physical keyboard. Both are rumored to be on track for July launch.

    this isn't the time and place, but i don't see the point of a 4 way directional pad anyways...

    i rather use QWE
    ASD
    ShiftZX

    for movement in emulated games anyways

    Ill give a few examples.
    One: going back in a text message and editing before sending it (its hard to use your finger to get it in the exact spot)
    Two: in recovery mode, you can navigate the menus...

    Those are all I can think of right now.

    I only use the keyboard for games. WADZ works well as a d-pad. The d-pad on motor droid is a little uncomfortable to use, mainly the center button. I use the d-pad and wadz together for first person shooters and it works well. But I wish they would make a keyboard with gamers in mind. 2 d-pads would be nice or a little flat analog stick. Android needs more good games first.
