BGR says the QWERTY slider will focus on social networking—presumably in the same vein as the new Sidekick. I have a bit of doubt about that flat not-so-touch-type-y keyboard, but still, color me impressed: Futuretastic-looking hardware running Android on Verizon? As long as they don't lock it the hell down, could be sweet, and not just for Moto, who needs a hit phone, or Verizon, who just needs better phones. [BGR]

I won't be interested until I see an actual photo, rather than something that looks like it was done in Illustratory (and maybe some input from our resident Moto gal)
