Mystery Motorola Android model appears
A picture made its way into the in hopper at Pocket Now, showing a blurry snapshot of what appears to be a mystery Motorola Android device. With no visible buttons on the front of the hardware, we could be looking at capacitive buttons that are dark with the power off. Or maybe the device has no buttons-which could be a sign that the unit is running Ice Cream Sandwich. The ribbon protruding from the model means that the mystery phone is being tested and Pocket Now noticed a "horizontal seam at the bottom" which probably means that a sliding physical QWERTY keyboard will be on board when the model is finished.

Does this mystery device have a DROID-esque appearance to it, and is it just the angle of the photo that makes the screen look so big? Don't keep us in suspense too long, Motorola, give us some details on this mystery model; inquiring minds want to know.

It can be, I hope they make it really high end this ime, everything was nice on the first defy but that it has a lower processor, It would be nice to have a super phone that's water proof

This device might just be having a quad-core CPU which we are about to see in early 2012.

Needs more of the corners tone cut off to be the photon...

the Photon also has a dark chrome colored bezel, this phone keeps a consistent shade of black all the way around.

In another article you was mentioning trolling...I posted there is a difference between posting/debating and trolling....

This is an example of trolling.

I dont really like Samsung phones. Take a guess at how many times I posted what you just did in some Samsung article?

Yea thats right....none.

Learn the difference between posting/debating and trolling....before you accuse others of trolling. A troll complaining about trolls is a complete fail.

Looks like it could be the Motorola Targa. Also, I see what looks like a power/lock button and volume rocker on the top right of the device.

this could very well be a slider. there is a (small) horizontal seam toward the bottom but thats not really a giveaway, any phone could have that. the thing that makes me think its a slider is the tag thats sticking out of the side. i understand that its for testing reasons but its clearly being supported on a level above the table (indicated by the shadow), it clearly isnt supported by or attached to the top screen, and theres no way they attached it to any of the ports (dumb idea), so im puting my money on the idea that its stuck somewhere on the keyboard or the back of the sliding screen.



if anyone had the D1, they'll remember how the little plastic tab stuck out from the sliding screen when it was brand new in the box. this looks pretty close to the same thing. i could be wrong, but thats what it looks like to me.
