RAZR-like Motorola Smartphone Leaked
Jun 27, 2005, 1:45 PM by (staff)
A new Motorola phone was leaked today that appears to combine RAZR styling with Windows Mobile for Pocket PC and a QWERTY thumb keyboard. The leak took the form of a presentation file on an official Microsoft server, apparently created by or for Dangaard Telecom, a major European phone distributor. The device is planned to be 11.5 mm thin. The specs include quad-band GSM with class 6 EDGE, landscape QVGA display, MiniSD card slot, Bluetooth, 1.3 megapixel camera, stereo speakers, and a thumbwheel.
Hands On with the Gemini Keyboard Phone
Planet Computers is on a mission to bring back that very specific type of PDA that tried to put a proper QWERTY keyboard in your pocket. No, not a thumb-board like your phone, more like a shrunken laptop.

T-Mobile Outs Windows 10 VR Phone From Alcatel
T-Mobile today listed the "Alcatel IDOL 4S with Windows 10 VR" on its web site. The unique version of the Idol 4S not only runs Windows 10, but sports many of the upgrades available in the related BlackBerry DTEK60, such as the high-end Snapdragon 820 processor, 21-megapixel camera, and USB Type-C connector, none of which are in the standard Idol 4S.
Microsoft Trots Out Nokia 222 Feature Phone

This reminds me of my 7250 minus the trackwheel.
Too bad nothing Microsoft or Motorola makes even comes close to the quality of a good Blackberry.
