Well, what do we have here? It seems like Motorola wants to keep pushing hard on the mid-range Android market with this portrait slider, which looks like it will get Verizon's "Droid" branding (or at least the red eye). This could point to some serious hardware, as Verizon has only given it's high-end Android devices the Droid name, while leaving the mid-range phones to fend for themselves (see: Moto Devour, LG Ally).
The device remains unnamed and unannounced, and has a form factor similar to the Palm Pre. It also looks like it will come with a full QWERTY keyboard, which should provide physical keyboard fans with an alternative to the Droid 2 or Sprint's Epic 4G. It would be no surprise if Moto was gunning for Verizon's legions of BlackBerry users who might be looking for a change from their Bold or Curve.
