Some additional details on the rather interesting Motorola MOTOSPLIT have surfaced, though it’s hard to tell whether the renders are the real deal or not. Aside from its wacky keyboard design, it’s now said that this phone sports the same specifications as the Motorola Backflip. There are a couple of other vague details released, though you can make what you may out of it, as this is turning out to be one weird phone. Do you think the following leaked information is accurate?
- The keyboard keys are inset and probably have no tactile feedback, however, they should be quite easy to use. It looks like the cutouts are pretty finger-friendly, as they contour to the shape of a standard finger. Under those cutouts is a low-resolution monochrome touch screen, one for each side of the keyboard. This is where the finger presses. The contact area is small, but the plastic grid that surrounds it contours to the fingers. The label and function of each key can be changed to suit certain layouts and applications.
- The keyboard has multiple orientations. The keyboard can be pulled from side to side for typing on a surface. A small kickstand angles the phone when typing in this manner. The keyboard can also be pulled to the left for a standard landscape layout. There is also a dial-pad layout.
