Concept: Scope Sliding Cell Phone Design
We’ve seen many phones out there that sport a sliding form factor, and now the Scope concept design from the folks at FORMBOTEN uses a similar design, but only the keys are hidden in a “drawer” that can be closed, or popped open with a press of a button.

Motorola Cliq Review
After a long walk in the desert, Motorola surprised everyone (or at least me) with the Motorola Cliq, an Android smartphone with a QWERTY sliding keyboard and most importantly MotoBlur, a combination of software and web services designed to unify all your communications in a single medium that is “people-oriented” instead of “service-oriented”.
