I donít think the QWERTY slider is THE factor that exclude it from the masses

Itís the name. Or lack of name. I remember someone calling in it chenPhone. Iím more interested in what name Chen going for. The phone i years away from the masses.

USB-C is the way to go for a 2018 device, and I believe Chen already mentioned it would be USB-C.

However, I personnaly don't really care what USB type it comes with (I still prefer USB-C) as long as it features OTG. Carrying a small adapter attached to my mouse or keyboard or thumb drive is not the issue, being able to connect them is the most important for me.

Both USB-C and OTG are planned if I remember correctly.

still wondering which would be a better choice: moto z1/z2 with keyboard mod or this new qwerty device.

obviously once the specs are published it would be much easier to decide. still wondering in terms of pricing (it's possible to buy z1/z2 for approx. $100 now and the mod itself is approx $100 too. so it's $200 in sum), any idea what pricing range would fit this new device?
also the time is a good question, `cause it took really long to build the keyboard mod and I'm not sure it would be available to anyone outside IGG campaign. then how long would it take to build a whole device from scratch, even if it's obviously the case part would come from keyboard mod and it's about 90% done.

p.s. I know I should be patient but the news about unavailability of keyboard mod really makes me nervous, good oldie N900 won't last forever either.

The Moto Mods and this new project are developed separately by different teams members. They are more like in parallel.

The problem for the Mod is it adds too much thickness in the middle, and makes the top too heavy and overall too thick. Obviously an all in one device is much better.

Also some minor part like the springs, I have to kept the spring open in order to reduce middle part thickness for above reasons but this problem won't exist in the upcoming device.

My experience from Mod project is never rely on anyone else, regardless big or small, but being independent and control everything in my own hands.

I'm just curious would be there available info about new project _before_ it would be too late to buy the keyboard mod. just in case I'd like to choose the mod instead of new device.

I hope there's no marketing reasons to avoid telling new project's specs to make people buy both lol

I know the development is well underway but will the device make use of the newly certified WPA3?

Good question

But why do you need that now?

I guess we donít have a device currently but more of a scetch or blueprint of the design of the slider. Nothing more.

My answer is currently: no but it might be ready for WPA4.

If Chen going for skunk work, without crowed scamming I think there is no need to advertise the features unless there is a working device with a working OS ready for shipment.

But that just me.

WPA3 is a software update that will be released for the various operating systems after it is finalized and released to the general public.

You will also need a wireless access point that has WPA3.

BTW, it won't be the specs in this thread posted last year, it is actually much higher.

Plan to show some working proto next quarter.
Well, it's the next quarter now, let the countdown commence.
