Motorola Loading Verizon with Super Sexy Phones in 2009

Believe it or not, there’s more to Motorola than just the RAZR and its subsequent successors. In fact, looking at this 2009 roadmap for Verizon Wireless, it looks like Motorola could be selling some pretty hot phones next year. They’ve got some rather creative names to boot and–get this–they don’t all get the “four letters in all caps” naming scheme either. Then again, these could just be codenames and none of them have actually been confirmed by Moto or VZW.

Starting from the left, We have the Motorola RUSH 2. With the increasing popularity in text messaging, instant messaging, and mobile email, we’re starting to see more QWERTY dumbphones. The RUSH 2 capitalizes on this trend with a horizontally-sliding QWERTY keyboard and bold black-red color scheme. Look for it in Q1.

In the middle is the Motorola CALGARY, another phone that happens to have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, but the keys look pretty different. It’s almost as if they are laser-etched into a flat piece of aluminum, illuminated with brilliant cyan lighting. From what I can gather, this will also be a touchscreen phone with Sidekick-like tendencies.

Last but not least is the Motorola INFERNO, seemingly an update to the MOTOMING line of Linux smartphones. It looks like it has an active clear flip like the previous MOTOMING phones. Aside from that, we’re pretty lacking in details so stay tuned for more as it develops.
