First image of the Motorola Motus leaks out

Someone just hit up our tip line and sent us the first picture of the Motorola Motus. The phone is basically the CLIQ v2 (almost identical specs), but it features a reverse flip keyboard. Yup, there is a keyboard on the back of the phone (when it is closed). When the keyboard is flipped open, it sits below the screen just as a normal slider would. The Motus is rumored to support AT&T and T-Mobile 3G bands so it could show up on either carrier (or both). We have also been told the device is based off Android 1.5 and will launch in Q1 2010.

Update: CellPassion is reporting Motorola has registered the trademark “Backflip” which could end up being the official name of this phone.

Update 2: Another tipster just sent in the full Motus specs.

What do you guys think?
