Calgary, you look… diferent

Different from early concept renders (first image below), that is. Maybe Motorola was paying attention when the public found the colors cheap and the keyboard lines gimmicky. I dunno, I kinda liked it.

Anyway, BGR’s all over these Motorola Androids headed to VZW. Another post by Boy Genius himself gives us the first glimpse of the second such device. This one is reportedly an economical alternative to the high-powered Droid.

There isn’t any clear info on price or street date just yet, but the word is that Calgary features MotoBlur, 3 MP camera, 3.5mm audio jack, GPS, Wi-Fi, microSD card slot, optical joystick, and obviously, a hardware QWERTY. Looks O.K. for a grid-style layout, but I’m going to side with AndroidGuys and say, “what’s with all the wasted space?” I suppose those are comfortable thumb rests.
