    According too http://www.gsmarena.com its "12.2 mm".

    For comparison
    Samsung GS3- 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6 mm
    Photon- 126.9 x 66.9 x 12.2 mm

    They should have inserted a battery in each half; get an insane battery life for a keyboard phone, that would compel a few sales.

    Looks like the Droid 4 with a faster CPU. Why didn't they go with the OLED screen?

    Does it say that they didn't? I don't see where it gives info about the display other than its size.

    It would be cool if Motorola made all it's future phones compatible with the laptop dock.

    That slide out keyboard looks a bit "busy". Would it have killed Motorola to simplify the design a bit?
