Take the Motorola BackFlip and change its flipping keyboard with a normal, sliding one – what would you get? Probably something similar to the Motorola Sage MB508.
The Sage MB508 is not officially announced, but we’ve found a photo of it chillin’ at the Bluetooth SIG, alongside some details on its features.
Motorola Sage MB508 is presented as a “simple QWERTY device with an approachable appearance that helps you save time by merging both your personal and professional lives with an integrated calendar and integrated in-box for email/messages/Social Network updates.”
Like the BackFlip, the Sage has a 3.1 inch touchscreen display (probably with 320 x 480 pixels). There’s no image of the smartphone with its keyboard out, but we know for sure that it’s a sliding one. And it seems to run Android 2.1. The phone, not the keyboard.
Earlier this week, Engadget has discovered that a Motorola Sage is likely coming to AT&T, featuring Wi-Fi, A-GPS, digital compass and Bluetooth. Is this our MB508? Yes, it most probably is – because, although the Bluetooth SIG doesn’t specifically say the MB508 is called Sage, the photo they’re providing is named Sage.jpg.
So, dear AT&T and Motorola, have you got anything to jointly announce in the near future?
