Motorola's really been branching out with iDEN form factors (and platforms) as of late, a testament to the fact that the aging network still has a niche no other technology can quite fill -- and, as evidenced by Boost Mobile's aggressive moves, customers ready to pay for it. The latest is a dual-keypad landscape slider, featuring your classic numeric keypad upfront teamed to a full QWERTY layout when you slide it open; maybe more interesting, though, is that the UI seems to be a dead ringer for Android -- widgets and all -- except that you don't have a touchscreen... and you most definitely can't run Android apps. All we've got to go on so far is an FCC filing, but we reckon we'll be hearing more soon.
