This is a mis-understanding, I'm not doing any marketing in here. The fact is even if each active community member bought 2 or even 3 of this device, it's still way too small to make it break even.

I just want to share the excitement and challenges before anywhere else. As I believe we share the same interest and passion for this product.

But project wise, it isn't a good idea to share a lot of internal plans publicly, unless crowdfunding is needed. This is the reason I want to keep limited publicity at this stage, until I hit a good stage to reveal more details. I want to let community know I haven't abandoned this project but trying to make it as good as I can.

a device in customer hands might blow my mind. Please no prototypes or other cool images or made up demos. But hey, it’s just me.

Hit me with a release date any random day and I will be really impressed if something is available.

As it happens, there is news today that the Moto Mods program is still alive:

I don't have any info about the QWERTY device though.

It's under R&D process integrating the new features into design. (Such as boarder-less screen but in slider form.)

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.

Spec will be larger than life. No need to hurry.

That sounds great. Reading the word "prototype" in the same sentence as "next quarter" helps starting to feel the thing is real and will hopefully happen and hit the market before I die of old age (or anything else). I am eagerly looking forward and you are the only person on Earth who could claim being even more impatient to see it. All other maemians come after. Yes, you come after lads, don't even argue. I know it for sure, because reasons.

Anyway. What do you mean exactly by "borderless screen but in slider form"?

My guess is like the recently announced Oppo Find X, where the camera slides out behind the screen, the screen itself is of the "bezel-less" variety, except in our case it slides out long ways for the keyboard. Although I wouldn't expect this qwerty phone to have that same screen where the bezels are very slight, he is only human after all.
