    Ahhh, gotcha. Well thats a relief. Im going to guess that the Voyager 2 will be out way before this "Alias 2" then, correct?

    that is correct. the buttons are not touch sensitive. imagine a grid of a buttons that change function depending on what mode you are in. for example, you open the flip normally and it's numbers... if you open the flip landscape it's letters... all on the same keys.

    i believe the u750 is quite a bit bigger than the u740.

    No, not the bottom portion of the phone. *Every* button is dynamic. For example, if you are in landscape mode, the buttons that are normally 1, 2, and 3, the lettering on the keys actually change to Y, H, and B.

    Kinda like the keys on a LED keyboard?

    I would imagine it it just like this. I cant believe this is coming out. I had this EXACT idea like years ago. Im excited about it though. Im just a little nervous that no one has very much information about it yet though. Woshi, Im assuming you may have seen this phone? Do you know (other than the buttons) if there are any major cosmetic differences from the 740?

    Sort of like that, but not in color. And the buttons stay 'lettered' or 'numbered' even when the phone is off.

    greg2230, it's physically bigger but very solid. gunmetal color, larger display on the outside, rounded off edges on the body.

    What do you mean by that? Do you mean they are always there and depending on which way the phone opens, either the letters or numbers lights up? That would be a disappointment if you could see both the letters and numbers all the time. I had thought that they were more of a "projector" like buttons?

    No, the button actually changes depending on what mode it's in, sort of like the LED buttons you see above. However it holds the image even without a battery, the keypad can still be seen when the phone is off.

    Think of it this way: there is a grid of roughly 40 keys. Each button is kind of like it's own Amazon Kindle screen, so the button can change function depending on what mode you are in. For example, when you open the flip normally, the key that would have said "SPACE" in landscape mode is a special key that shows an envelope on it that is a shortcut to your text message inbox.

    Does that help?

    So it's something like E-Ink?
    => Read my reviews for the Motorola DROID MAXX, DROID Ultra, and DROID Mini.

    => VX8000 at Disney World:Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.
