    Hablas, Muchachos!

    Well... I was thinking that the Moto V3 was a big sucessfull format, and cold be a EXCELENT Web OS Smartphone, with some little details:

    => Put a Qwerty keyboard, like the Morotora Rambler

    => Open 360, like the Motorola Backflip; to use like a PDA without keyboard:

    => Use the SAME dimensions; or less, of Motorola Rarz V3 (98 x 53 x 13.9 mm, 65 cc, 95gr.)

    => So, we have this idea, in the end:

    I'm terrible editing imagens, but I believe that this is the idea, but putting a screen bigger inside (because there is wast space in Moto V3), some small touch outside and one qwerty keyboard there...

    So... beautifull, small, light, with the woman appeal (flip)... and Web OS!

    What do you think about?



    Best Regards...

    Would love a landscape slider, but Palm would never do it. They've always had a portrait keyboard.

    Now an interesting design would be to implement the accidental 'Oreo Effect' into the new phone. As in,the phone slides open like the Pre, then a small button at the bottom releases the screen to rotate landscape. That would open up some major possibilities,although I would think the build quality would suffer with all the different joints and levers.

    The Kyocera 7135 PalmOS flip phone did what you're describing pretty well ... except the being really thin part.

    Yep! This reminded me of my old Kyocera 7135 - My second smart phone! My first was a Kyo 6135. Now- There was a brick! I loved it! Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

    My Kyocera was an incredible workhorse. My 755P was nice but I still preferred the flip form factor for durability.

    As long as Palm learns from this "durability" nightmare should they revisit the flip form factor it should be ok. The Treo300 was notorious for it's faulty hinge and it's cracking problems.

    That's for sure. The Treo 300 helped establish Palm's reputation for clever innovation on poorly designed/built hardware.

    If they make a Backflip-esque device, I'll kill myself.
