I’m going to call this one the Motorola Droid MiniDroid Pre Thingy (at least until we can get more official details and a codename of some sort). HiAPK’s gotten more blurrycam shots of another rumored device. This time, it’s a phone by Motorola which has the Verizon-branded Droid eye shining on the display and looks to adopt the slide-up QWERTY keypad design that Palm’s made famous with the Pre.


We can see four capacitive buttons used to navigate the Android operating system, but that’s all we can pick out at this time. Judging by the form factor and size, it could end up being a mid-ranged device headed for Verizon for those who need more than just a “messaging phone” but doesn’t need all of the bells and whistles of a high-end smartphone.

I quite like the look of this device, actually. Motorola’s been targeting every consumer they possibly can with the devices they’re bringing out lately, and this continues that train right into the latter parts of 2010. After announcing they’d be bringing 20 Android handsets before the new year rings in, we won’t be surprised to see something totally different as soon as tomorrow.
