Motorola unveils the Evoke QA4

The Motorola Evoke offers a touch-screen display, a slide-out keypad, and rounded edges. It also has a music player, a camera, a memory card slot, and USB storage.

Motorola joined Nokia , Samsung , and LG on Monday in getting a head start on CTIA. Although the mobile festivities don't begin until April 1 in Las Vegas, Moto spilled details on its new Evoke QA4. to see it from all angles, check out our Motorola Evoke hands-on photo gallery .

Stocked with a midrange multimedia-feature set and sporting an eye-catching design, the Evoke should turn a few heads on the show floor. The 2.8-inch display takes up most of the phone's real estate. In addition to an icon-based menu, it also shows a virtual QWERTY keyboard for messaging and e-mail. Other exterior controls are minimalist; we only see a navigation control beneath the display.

The Evoke also slides up to reveal a traditional numeric keypad. You can text here as well, though we imagine that most users would prefer the virtual keyboard on the display. We like the silver-and-black color scheme and the rounded edges.

Features on the CDMA Evoke include EV-DO Rev. A support, stereo Bluetooth, a music player, a full HTML browser, a 2-megapixel camera, organizer features, a memory card slot, USB mass storage, and a speakerphone.

We don't have price or availability details yet, but we'll let you know just as soon as we get them.
