QWERTY keyboard slider Moto Mod coming to Kickstarter

QWERTY keyboard slider Moto Mod concept coming soon to Indiegogo
QWERTY keyboard Moto Mod
This modular accessory for the Moto Z that reminds of the Motorola Photon Q is expected to hit Indiegogo soon and, if the campaign turns out to be successful, it should reach the market later this year.

With the upcoming LG G6 dropping the modules known as "friends," the Moto Z has one less competitor to worry about. However, there are still a lot of additional features that would be interesting to have, and a QWERTY keyboard sounds like a good idea.

Motorola Photon Q fans would surely enjoy the QWERTY landscape-oriented keyboard Moto Mod for the Moto Z, only that this accessory is not available for purchase yet. The concept, however, recently surfaced on Reddit and the design already suffered a few changes. In the end, the keyboard will probably leave the back camera alone (the initial design obstructed it), also dropping some of the redundant keys (the volume keys, for example).

The Indiegogo campaign it not up yet, but it should begin in March. Sadly, the official campaign page for the "Physical Keyboard Slider Mod For Moto Z" accessory does not reveal anything about the costs involved or the design. We can only hope to see the final design and the campaign up and running as soon as possible, although many might consider the whole concept outdated and pointless.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
