When we first saw the Motorola portrait slider in all its blurrycam glory, we were interested. It's high time a portrait slider rolls out for Android, and the red Droid eye means it's pretty much a given that this one will hit Verizon eventually. To make things even more interesting, if the XT300 name is correct, it would indicate that there's a GSM version of this one out there as well. Or the name could be wrong. Or Motorola no longer uses the XT name only for GSM phones. That's how things go when you deal with rumors and make your best guess from pictures.
A few things we can tell for sure from the pictures and video though -- this one comes with no flash for the camera, has an excellent looking keyboard, a rear mounted trackpad, and some form of Blur, at least for the launcher. We'll keep an eye out, as the form factor looks like something worth trying. Be sure to hit the source link for a mess of pictures and video, and we have one of the vid's after the break.
