With the Charm, Motorola managed to create an Android device in a form factor that we had never seen before, and if a recent leak is true, they'll be doing it again.  Android and Me has spotted pictures and a video, all extremely blurry, of course, of a portrait QWERTY slider sporting a red eye similar to the DROID devices on Verizon.  Looking like a close brother to the Palm Pre, this new device features four capacitive buttons on the face of the device similar to previous Moto Android phones.  Any other details are difficult to decern, however, as it appears that this device and Mr. Blurrycam got pretty close in their time together.

Judging by the form factor and the blurry photos and videos, I would guess that this device would settle right in the mid-range of Verizon's Android lineup.  I've always been a fan of the Palm Pre, so a similar device running Android is definitely appealing.  Considering all of the different designs Motorola has been able to pump out for Android phones, I'm interested to see what they'll come up with next.  Hey Moto, how about an Android phone designed like a nunchuck, with a screen on one end and a keyboard on the other than can double as a weapon?
