You just described the problem YouTube has in one sentence 😄

If you look in the bug thread he actually had troubles with the 2MB limit - so had to split *LOL*

...So now you have an excuse to use hi-res renders... 🥴

(I was not even aware there is a leaderboard. And it clearly shows I have troubles shutting up 😇)

If i was as smart back when starting this thread... I actually downscaled some of them to fit more in a post xD

That wasn't even my goal.  It just told me 2MB limit so I couldn't fit two on one post.

p.s. (shoulda read the last page of the thread before replying, didnt notice it, and no delete option here or I'd just remove it.  But yeah too lazy to resize or host elsehwere, just copy img from another tab and paste directly into msg here ctrl+v).

F(x)tec has set up a special collection point for pre-order customers in London that prefer not to wait for Royal Mail.

Since deliveries have started, I think it's worth to look back what long way they have come since the early prototypes :).

Is this your own artwork? If so, congrats, it's clever in every way. If not, that means the Pro1 is being noticed in the wider anti-fruit community. :P

 I hope they don't load them that way, because the lower ones might arrive slightly crumpled...

 

If that happens, they'll just repackage them and sell as Pro1 Slim edition :)

I’m sure most of you had seen this concept rendering. Although it is not an actual physical keyboard it is a good looking phone. If it ever did get released I would probably pick one up just for keepsake. And incase my pro1 ever dies 

I don’t know about you guys but I sure miss home buttons. Not a fan of finger print scanners and all touch screen phones. Don’t care about screen bevels and camera/mic/flash notches. 
 

Still holding out for a sidekick/ or original style Motorola Droid but obviously with modern os. Is it just me or are they over doing it with phones now?

Looks nice 🙂 Though I personally prefer the tilted type like he Pro1, and these renders are very optimistic on how far they let it slide, I would fear for how fragile that would be.

And at first look it would be harder than the Pro1 to open without screen interaction, as you can not lift, and there is nowhere left to push. But one could go for motors of course.

Good points. I am not a fan of curved screens so if it had a standard one with a lip all would be fine. Personally I prefer the flat slide but hey, maybe in a month I’ll be used to my pro1 and love the screen tilt!

I miss regular sliders, this phone will be my first titled screen slider.  I'm just excited to use a keyboard again!

That phone is missing most of the useful keys from the keyboard!

Most of my interaction with the Pro1 keyboard is using the keys "around the edges" so to speak. All the meta keys like tab, escape, control, alt, etc.

A keyboard isn't a useful keyboard if it's not a full keyboard.

...teally good idea is e-ink under kb 🙂

If this is to be real keys and not just touch, it would be awesome. But why not stay staggered?

I was going to say the same thing.  I would have no problem if they wanted to have dynamic display technology on the top of the keys.  That would also be efficient from the perspective of manufacturers, so they wouldn't have to have different hardware keys.  But the keys would need to be like the ones on the Pro1, where they are staggered, rounded on top, spaces in between, rounded corners on the keys, etc.  

There would need to be an override to put it back to the stock keyboard in any apps where the apps decide to re-write the keyboard too (last picture).  Ideally, the norm would be that the keyboard could have a default layout across all apps, but end users could override that for custom layouts per app.  The app makers could also provide a custom layout, but the end users would be able to override it.

The only thing the above concept (from the pictures, where they aren't hardware keys) solves when compared to a normal, virtual keyboard is that it doesn't take up screen space when typing.  Typing would still be just as bad as a virtual keyboard, other than possibly being able to hold the phone better while typing with thumbs.  Swype typing would be worse with the screen out and doing it on the exposed keyboard than on a regular slab phone.

I must have cursed out Steve Jobs 10 times while typing this.

Hence why my Droid 4 (using it now) gets 10x the use that my PRIV gets. :) Well, that and the Droid has the keyboard the correct direction. :P

I took it as the bottom panel was a complete touch sensitive e-ink area.  And basically you could put anything there 🙂
