Picture reveals the Motorola MOTOSPLIT?
A blurry picture of an oddly looking handset has surfaced on the Internet and the word has it this is the Android-based Motorola MOTOSPLIT. Allegedly, it will be a high-end cell phone equipped with a fast Snapdragon processor and side-sliding QWERTY keyboard with landscape layout that consists of two separate arms that unfold sideways, to you right and left, in pretty much the same way as the keyboard of the Nokia 6820. The information on the Motorola MOTOSPLIT is still rather sketchy and it´s quite possible that the image is fake. Still, it shows us the handset will come with angular design and shapes, similarly to the famous DROID. The rumor goes the device will hit the shelves via AT&T in the US, although judging by the extremely popular CLIQ and DROID, the manufacturer certainly does not like the confines of a single market, so we will probably see the MOTOSPLIT across Europe as well. Supposedly, the device will roll out in Q3 2010, so we guess we will be reporting about leaked pictures and specifications for quite some time.

i used to love how a lot of the older nokias had crazy designs, features, layouts, and what not. seems like moto is refusing to die again by trying anything. only time will tell how things play out

Spoonb1 and JocularJester know their Nokias...Back in the day I wanted the 6800 really bad...ended up getting the 6200. I was very satisfied. That phone still is one of my favorite phones...oh the memories.

Split keyboard is a terrible idea on a phone that navigates via TOUCHSCREEN! WTF man!
