New patent reveals Google design for slide-out, QWERTY style phone
Google’s designs for their prized Nexus line (Nexus One, Nexus S, Galaxy Nexus) have all followed the standard candybar-style. However, the latest from the rumor mill (or patent mill, as it were) is layouts for a slide out, QWERTY style device.
We here at AndroidGuys are reminded of the HTC Dream, the original Android handset, in these pictures. There are several different slide out mechanism plans, including a scissor-hinge, sprint & stabilizing link, as well as a serpentine style.
The patents were filed in January 2012, and just ran through the patent office this month.
