AT&T may be getting a smartphone with an unusual design featuring a split keyboard that slides out from either side of the touchscreen.
The Motorola Split will supposedly be one of the five smartphones running Google's Android OS this carrier is prepping for release this year.
This is the first report on this smartphone to come to light, so details are very sketchy.
The majority of available information comes from a single image showing this device from the front and back (at left). This is of a device with a built-in keyboard that slides out of either side of the display.
In addition, the source of the leaked image says this model will run Android on a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor.
All other specifications remain a mystery.
Coming this Summer?
According to an informed source, the Motorola Split will be released by AT&T at some point in the July-September quarter.
Earlier this month, this carrier promised to release five Android-powered smartphones this year, even though it has not yet introduced any of these. The first is expected to be Motorola Backflip, and another could be a version of the HTC Hero.
