    Apparently there is no edit button for my post?

    I wanted to add an example of the messaging aspect. Try writing a message in landscape while using a chat app like eBuddy, Meebo, Nimbuzz etc... When in landscape you can't read the conversation. That is annoying if using any instant messaging application since your basically blind every time you start typing. This reason alone is enough to use the physical keyboard sometimes, even if your not particularly fast/good with it.

    So let me get this straight, on the MotoSPLiT I have to slide 50% of the keyboard from one side of the phone, and pull the other 50% of the keyboard on the opposite side of the phone?

    You have got to be joking, right? Do I really need to explain how horrible that idea is? What if a key I usually reach with my right hand is located on the left part of the keyboard? I don't even want to think about that.

    That phone just sucks, sorry...but it does...

    Wow. Seriously? Are they kidding? What kind of idea is that? That would be awesome if it was a gaming pad but they wouldnt do anyone that favor, so instead its a piece of junk keyboard? Ive lost interest.

    Ya its definitely awkward looking but I remember people saying the same about the Sidekick phones when those were first introduced. But i think it'll be interesting to see what motorola is able to do with it. If and when it ever gets released, cause to be honest it looks like nothing more than a concept phone to me.
