    It's not for me but it's a pretty cool little device.

    People on Moto's Facebook page LOVE the Cliq so I'm sure they will be digging this one.

    I like it a lot. Too bad its not for me since it has a small 3.1in screen with lower resolution. Love the camera placement though.

    Yep...it's a little different all right. Who knows, it may turn out to be very functional AND popular?!

    I actually kinda like this phone lol, I don't know why people are criticizing it's features lol. Its different but in a good way I feel lol. I love the idea that it has it's own stand which switches to clock mode.

    Not a device for me... but it looks pretty well done. And it's not like anything we've seen. With the love the Cliq has this device will probably do pretty well.

    i think it "looks" cool. however i think it makes two things worse.

    - the idea of a flip is to protect the screen or not touch anything accidentally. screen and keyboards are outside!!!
    - since it's outward, when closed, it actually makes things thicker because it doesn't slope inward (curvature) so make it seem slim (ala..iphone).

    Besides the weird location, the keyboard looks fairly nice to me:

    If I was an AT&T fan, this phone would be at the top of my list. Too bad it has Blur on it....
