Motorola MB511 "Ruth" Outed - Will it Resemble the "Q" Form Factor?

The chaps at CellphoneSignal have unearthed another Motorola handset in the works.  The model number this time is MB511 and a codename of “Ruth” is attached to it.  As with all newly leaked devices, the list of known specs is rather short.  Here’s what CellPhoneSignal was able to dig up so far…

  • Moto Blur (Android 1.5)
  • 240 x 320
  • Qwerty Keyboard
  • Qualcomm MSM7200A 528MHz
  • Bluetooth 2.o with EDR, WiFi, b/g, and aGPS

We recently learned from Motorola that all of their current handsets will be updated to Android 2.1 so we half expect this to roll out the door with it preloaded by the time it’s ready.  In case you curious as to what kind of handset would have a QWERTY keyboard and a 240×320 screen, take a look at the Motorola Q below.

HTC is slated to offer a similar form factor later this year with their “Salsa” handset.  What are your thoughts on an Android phone with this design?  Are you a fan?
