10 weird and unusual Motorola phone designs
posted by Florin T. / Jun 08, 2014, 8:58 PM
Of course, today Motorola isn’t what it used to be. Its Mobility division (which separated from Motorola Solutions in 2011) was acquired by Google in 2012, and is now in the process of being bought by Lenovo - which certainly has the needed resources not just to keep the Moto flame burning, but also to allow the company to fight with the major smartphone makers out there.
Anyway, talking about Motorola’s future is something we should do another time. Right now, we’ll just present you older Motorola phones that have weird or unusual designs. You can let us know in the comments if you owned any of them, or if you think there are other devices that should’ve made it to our list.
1-9 look better than that one plastic phone that everyone hates…..

It is Sunday, so I ll appreciate them trying to offer us something to read. On another note, imo the Aura is the best designed phone ever

I had the Moto ming, awesome phone. I had a passion for linux in those days. Linux in those days was awesome. With the likes of Google screwing the open source philosophy, having a Linux phone is no longer cool. Linux on phones lost it cool after Jolla. waiting for it to release world wide. The Moto ming was one awesome design. Every module inside talks to another module over the PPP protocol sheer simplicity. :)

A friend who had the Flipout in high school earned the title of box-phone guy. And since it was a flashy orange color people would frown when he would take it out. also where i'm from at the time, the Milestone was actually one of the top ten favorite smartphones of all geeks. i always wanted one but was too young to get a phone.

Number 8 is quite nice, rotating style phone. Number 9 is awesome, kinda like what the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom is, a point and shoot merged with a phone. Nice Motorola, I would've expect so more crazy design but these I can cope with.

The Ming series had a cousin in the US known as the Krave, which launched on Verizon. I thought the touchscreen/flip combo was very cool back in the day, even if the execution was...uneven. That was the year Motorola came out with its last basic phones that really had effort put into them, like the VU30, which was very similar to the jewel phone above, except the jewel part was limited to its button design while the rest was just a smooth oval. It wasn't long after that that Motorola launched full bore into the Cliq and the Droid instead.
